Friday Face Off: Unearthly





On the cover-to-cover showdown today we have 2 versions of Cynthia Hand's Unearthly.  I think most of us here in the US are familiar with the cover on the left, but having just finished the book, I came across the red dress cover on Goodreads when I went to rate the book.  I'm a little torn as to which I like best, as I think they are both very pretty but both have their drawbacks.  I do have to say, though, that the picture of the blue cover doesn't nearly do it justice.  The cover in person is shiny,with silvery letttering and a ruby glow to the background -- really lovely.
But what do you think?  Which does it better?




Last Week on FFO:  The Phantom of Pemberley sent chills up the (book)spine of Magic Most Foul, pulling out a unanimous win!

  2. We have the red dress cover here in Australia and the blue one looks insipid after seeing the alternative. Red cover all the way!

  3. I can't decide between them. They are both gorgeous. Is the US one blue then IRL because it's always looked lilac/purple to me on my screen.

  7. TSB: It's sort of a deep blue/lavendar.

  8. I'm kind of torn...I really like both of them for different reasons. Maybe after I read the book I'll be able to pick one. Love the red dress, though.

  10. To me this isn't much of a contest - while I like the blue it seems washed out in comparison to the vibrant red which is much more striking. Thanks for the fun comparison!

  11. Oh wow -- good question! I'm really attached to the blue/purple cover for some reason because it's just so striking and seems really angelic. The red dress one does capture the essence of the fire better, I think, but I can't help but wonder why she's facing the forest fire in a gown?

  12. Ha! I never thought of that, but you're absolutely right, Casey. That is a bit on the bizarre side...
