Welcome back, fellow book lovers, to another 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 I would love to hear your opinions on these covers, too! Feel free to leave comments about them in the section below. 🙂
Here are this week’s covers:
1. My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody
I’m really a fan of the second cover! It’s neat and simple, with its lightly styled typography and the cute heart mouse! I think it fills up space nicely without it being too overwhelming. It also gives readers a little more info on the story. The first cover, while still informative, doesn’t seem as appealing to me with the model’s questioning face being the only anchor to story… Maybe if she was more dynamic, writing her blog and such, it might have made for a better cover.
2. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
First cover for sure! Did I ever mention my love for rustic keys? Because it is almost as great as my love for buttons! The intricate design of the keys mixed in with that faded out background of a girl staring and the typography makes for a beautiful cover! The second cover, while possessing pretty typography, is kind of boring in comparison with the model merely standing there.
3. Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry Winfrey
This one’s so hard because I really like both covers! I love the background of the first one as well as how it plays with different typographies on the cover, although I’m not too fond of the cover art. And while I might not like the second cover’s typography as much, I definitely love its cover art decorating the background. Overall, I think I’ll go with cover number two for using its space efficiently.
4. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
In this case, I’d pick the first cove hands-down! Other than my major appreciation for its typography, I love the background colour scheme with the wood as well as how nicely it represents summer with only a few details. The second cover however seems to incorporate a lot more details, and adding to the fact that its clustered around the title, it doesn’t appeal to me as much.
Well that’s it for this week’s Which Cover Wednesday! If you see any covers you like, give a shout out in the Comments Section below! Have a nice day, everyone! 😉
