Friday Face Off: Reaching Through Time v. Return to Paradise


This week's FFO comes to us from Laura of Tattooed Books, who spotted a striking similarity between Lurlene McDaniel's Reaching Through Time and Simone Elkeles Return to Paradise.  As similar as these covers are (I mean, obviously), the difference is still night and day... (ba-dum-bum)
Forgetting the stories and the authors and all that jazz, which one would you reach for on the shelves?
Which one did it better?




Last Week on FFO:  It was a pretty tight race between two covers that I think happen to be pretty awesome - and then the author of one showed up and things took a turn for the unlovable.  I mean that literally, Unlovable won in a landslide.

  1. Reaching Through Time is purdy with all the swirly embellishments.

  3. Return to Paradise. I think Reaching Through Time is pretty, but it's also a little bit overdone. Yes, I'm picky.

  4. Um, neither? I don't really like either of them, but if I had to choose, I'd go for Reaching Through Time, because of the swirly details. Gives you something more than awkward models to look at. =/

  8. Yeah, not a big fan of the two awkward peeps on the cover! But I like the lighting better in Reaching Through Time.
