Hello, lovely readers! It’s been a while since my last Which Cover Wednesday, but I’m back now! For those of you who don’t know, Which Cover Wednesday is a weekly meme I host where I compare two different covers of a book and give my opinion of which cover looks better. Without further ado, here are this week’s covers!

1.  The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand

In this case, I’d go with the first cover. I love the cover art surrounding the first cover’s typography; I find it eye-catching. Plus, the second cover gives off this comic vibe that doesn’t sit well with me, since I didn’t find this book particularly funny…

2. Ink is Thicker Than Water by Amy Spalding

OMG! Loving that second cover! Especially that ink stain background and typography! It fits the book so well! The first cover is okay for its time, but has nothing on the second cover!

3. First Test by Tamora Pierce

And this round goes to the second cover! Again! I love the contrast between these two covers! You can tell the cover designer wanted to revamp the book in order appeal to all those who want tough, kickbutt heroines and might not have heard of Tamora Pierce or her books.

4. The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia

Second cover for the win! I’m just a huge fan of the typography as well as the moving car alluding to the story. While the models in the first cover do allude to the story as well, I’m all for covers that prove that they can stand on their own with including models.

Well, that’s a wrap for this week’s Which Cover Wednesday! Let me know which covers you liked in the Comments Section below!
