Friday Face Off: Paper Valentine

Well. I have been MIA all week, so sorry about that. BUT I'M BACK BITCHES. ;P
Um... So Friday Face-Off time, yeah?
This week we're taking a look at Brenna Yovanoff's Paper Valentine (which needs to be in my hand like NOW). Below are the US and UK versions of the upcoming book, with two very different covers.  What I find particularly interesting is that in the US, Brenna's books (all stand-alones) have a sort of cover theme going, while the UK books are each their own thing (shown below the FO). But though I may find it interesting, and like the idea of a "set" even though they're not part of a series, this week's Face Off isn't about them, it's about Paper Valentine - so which do you like? Which would you reach for, which would make you curious, and which would you rather have on your shelves?
Which one did it better?

US versions of The Replacement & The Space Between (above)
and the UK versions (below), where TSB is called Smoulder.

Last Week on FFO:  US and UK versions of Cate Tiernan's Immortal Beloved series went head to head, and though we were all pretty decided on the new UK style being boring and generic as hell, we were tied on the originals vs the new US. So in this fantastic series, it doesn't matter what it looks like - just pick it up!



  1. The one on the right with the hand is awful. The paper girl on the left is much nicer imo :)

  2. The one on the left is amazingly beautiful! The right, not so much.

  3. Ew, ew, ew, that UK cover is TERRIBLE. US all the way!

  4. I don't like either one. But the one with the hand on it is the worst. That hand looks like it wants to crawl out of the cover - like in a horror movie.
    But I still love both covers of The Replacement :)

  5. The one with the girl. I think it's so interesting that if I so it in a library I'd pick up the book for sure :)

  6. Yep, in this case I have to go US. I love that cover. The UK one is nowhere near as appealing this time around.

  7. They're very different. I'd be more likely to pick up the US cover. I like the silhouette.

  8. US version so much better!

    But the UK versions of her other two are atrocious....just had to throw that in.

  9. I do prefer the US version better. However, having read the book, the one on the right is quite fitting to the story and more eye-catching in its creepiness!
