When a friend from the UK recently posted Seraphina as to-read on Goodreads, I noticed something: the UK cover. (I know you're saying, well, yeah, but I tend to look into these things, and this time I was just so captivated by my cover - and the story inside - that I didn't.) Now, I always say on FFO that it's about the cover not the story - anyone can have an opinion on a cover without having read the book, and it's a judgement on whether the cover art is effective, whether it makes you want to pick up the book or walk on by. I also try to never give my opinion beforehand, lest I bias you.
So in keeping with that, I'll keep my opinions to myself and let these two covers duke it out. Which one makes you curious about the story inside? Which one would you reach for on the shelves?
Which one did it better?
(I would highly recommend clicking each to see it in greater detail)
Last Week on FFO: The hardback and paperback covers of Gabrielle Zevin's All These Things I've Done went head to head (or head to chocolate heart...) in what was a much closer race than I was anticipating. The anti-face-cover sentiment did when out in the end, but Anya's edgy hairstyle gave that chocolate & countdown list cover a run for its money.
