Friday Face Off: Between vs. Unlovable


Okay, I have to start by saying I am indebted to Liz for helping me with this one, because I couldn't remember the name of one of the books, which made it a tad hard to find.
I basically saw these covers for the first time just days apart.  I saw Jessica Warman's Between and thought "Ooh, that's neat!" and then I saw  Sherry Gammon's Unlovable and I thought "Ooh, that's nea- hey, wait a minute!"  So yeah, pretty neato covers, and for all their differences in color and background and whatnot, definitely similar.  No idea what these are about (you know, beyond what the titles imply), but they certainly got my attention.  And creeped me out just a touch.
So what do you guys think?  Love 'em, hate 'em, indifferent?  If you had to choose just one, which would it be?
Which one did it better?




Last Week on FFO:  The hardcover and paperback versions of Kirsten Miller's The Eternal Ones went around and around (cause there's an ouroboros on the cover...get it?), with the simpler original cover just b a r e l y eking out a win.

  1. I prefer the cover of Unlovable. I really like the colours and the forest background. The cover of Between is not my taste at all. :D

  2. I think I like the 2nd one better. The first one looks real fake.

  3. I'm going for Unlovable. I want to be in that scene, where as with Between... well, it's kinda hard to imagine myself in the clouds, y'know?

  6. Yeah, they both look creepy. I would pick Between, it's less creepy. I don't really do creepy.

  7. I think Unlovable. It sort of looks like they got the colors on Between's cover wrong.

    And yes, you are indebted to me. Bwahahaha! (Kidding. Sort of.)

  12. Unlovable definitely!!! I love how there is the pink dress to give it some color. Inbetween doesn't really have any color and that makes it boring!

  13. I like Unloveable. It's darker and more emotionally impactful. I'm gonna go find out what it's actually about.

  14. Hahaha. Oh HI THERE, Sherry! ;)

  15. i definitely prefer 'unloveable' ... 'between' looks to sci-fi and just not my taste. 'unloveable' catches my attention better if i were to see it in a bookstore.

  17. Hi Misty! I really would like to know how we both came up with the cover. I hired Digital Artist Paul Beeley. What a small world!!

  22. Love, love, love, Unlovable! It has a silent intrigue and mystery. I need to turn the cover.......

  23. I'm late here, but I just wanted to put my two cents in. I recently saw Between in stores and at first I was inclined to that book cover more, but when you look at the hard cover you realize her feet aren't just hidden by clouds, they're literally cut off. You can see where her feet just aren't part of the image. It freaked me out, so I'm going with unloved lol.
