Got a cover double for you this week. I feel like we've been doing a lot of remixes of covers for the same book (which is disconcerting, because it means a lot of covers are being given makeovers, which is a trend that tends to drive most readers - and nearly all book-buyers - insane). So I thought we would shake it up and do another double this week. It's been awhile. It's good to get back to the roots of FFO. At least for awhile. (aka There are plenty more remix face-offs to come.)
This week we're looking at Michelle Zink's upcoming A Temptation of Angels and Marie Higgins Secrets After Dark. The similarities are obvious because, um, it's the same photo. But they do still have different feels to them, so the question is, as always:
Which one did it better?
Last Week on FFO: Two covers for the upcoming apocalypsies release by Zoraida Córdova, The Vicious Deep, went head to head, with the, um, head winning.
People did think the trident cover (which is the final cover, it seems) does have a broader appeal, and is probably more suited to a book with a male narrator. But the fact was most of us found it plain and generic, where the face cover has a lot of subtle by awesome things going on. (Though a number of you did mention that you weren't fans of either.)
