Hey, lovely readers! It’s that time of week again: Which Cover Wednesday! Which Cover Wednesday is a meme I host where I compare two covers of the same book and choose which one I think is better for that book (based solely on my opinion). And you can participate as well, in the Comments Section below! Here are this week’s covers:
1. The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Carr
I guess in this case, I’d go with the first cover. I like how it conveys a sense of “fracturedness”, kind of like a jigsaw puzzle of sorts. The first cover, with its simple typography and background, seems boring in comparison.
2. The Burning Girl by Claire Messud
First cover again! While I like the warm tones of the second cover, I admire the first cover’s text placement as well as its chalk-like typography and the image of a match shaped into a face. Plus, I don’t really like the centre image of the second cover; it’s just floating there, which looks kind of weird to me.
3. Optimists Die First by Susin Nielson
First cover forever! Or least until they make one even better! 😉 I love the way it resembles a knitted sweater; that’s my main reason for liking cover number one. The second cover does look okay, especially with the thread and button, but it’s a bit empty with its spacious black background.
4. Frost Blood by Elly Blake
Even though both covers are similar, if I had to choose, I’d go with (surprise, surprise) the first cover. I like the intricate design of the flower, along with the blood dripping from it and its unique typography.
That’s all for this week’s Which Cover Wednesday! Hope you enjoyed reading it! If you have any thoughts about these covers that you’d like to share, feel free to leave them in the Comments Section below! Thank you for reading!
