Hello, lovely readers! It’s that time of week again: Which Cover Wednesday! 😀  Which Cover Wednesday is a weekly meme I host. What happens is that I compare two different covers of a book and give my opinion of which cover looks better. And feel free to join in on the fun by commenting on these gorgeous covers below! 😉 And this week’s contenders are:

1.  This Raging Light by Estelle Laure

This is a tough one! I really like the ombre colours of the first cover, but I love the typography of the second cover more…. I guess if I had to choose, I’d go with the second one, because it’s a bit more subtle and suited to the story than the first cover’s playfulness.

2. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Second cover, second cover, second cover! While the first cover is the one I read from way back when, the second one holds an appeal to me simply because of the velvety rose in the centre. I kind of wish it had more going for it than that, but right now, I like its cover art as well as its bold typography…

3. The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan

Love that second cover! At first, I really liked the first cover with that ethereal dress the model’s wearing as well as the colours, but the second cover has something going for it. Maybe it’s the model’s expression, like she’s just been fighting some serious bad news, or the fact that a gargoyle is on the cover, alluding to the story more than the Parisian background of the first cover.

4. Chanters by Amy Butler Greenfield

In this case, I’d go with the first cover, seeing as it looks  a bit more otherworldly and related to fantasy in some way. The second cover looks more general ( I honestly wouldn’t know if it was historical or contemporary…), but I wouldn’t guess its relation to the story at all! Plus, I like how first cover makes use of its cover art by playing with the typography. Even though the second one has the same kind of cover art, it looks more like a random flourish…

Well, that’s all for this week’s Which Cover Wednesday! Were there any covers that made you look twice? I’d love to hear about it, as well as any suggestions for this meme, in the Comments Section below. Have a wonderful day, everyone!
