When I posted recently about the upcoming sequel to Gabrielle Zevin's All These Things I've Done, and showed the new cover style for the series in my book haul that included Because it is My Blood, I was a bit surprised by some people's reactions. I mean, not entirely - I know we all hate to have covers changed mid-series. And I liked the original cover well-enough. But I love the sleek new look for the series, and though I see where people's pet peeves have come in, I thought it was one of the more successful cover redos I've seen (though I will miss the countdown on the chocolate heart version). But since enough people were passionate about it, I thought it'd make a perfect FFO!
So, which would you want on your shelves?
Which one did it better?
Last Week on FFO: The US and UK versions of Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone/The Gathering Dark went head to head, with a lot of you noting the cover flip-flop: the US usually does people covers and the UK, silhouettes and images instead, which was not the case this time around. The US version just barely pulled out a win, mostly because, as some of you noted, the UK version skews younger and more girly.
