Friday Face Off: Mind Games vs. Mind Games...sort of

A couple weeks ago, we had a Face Off between Kiersten White's Mind Games and Jessica Brody's Unremembered. Mind Games won, and I told you to remember its cover because you'd be seeing it again. And to prove I'm not a liar:
Here is the US version of KWhite's next book, and the UK version, which beyond having a totally different cover - and feel to that cover - also has a completely different name (Sister Assassin). These two give very different impressions, so I'm definitely curious which you'd reach for.
Which one did it better?

Last Week Um, sorta 2 weeks ago on FFO: We had a non-traditional Face Off when the US and UK trailers for Marcus Sedgwick's Midwinterblood went head to head. Each trailer had a very distinct vibe and highlighted completely different aspects of the book, which was pretty interesting, but in the end, the UK's more ominous tone won out.
Winner ------------>


  1. Sister Assassin seems a bit darker, but I would pick it up before Mind Games every time.

  2. I think I'd pick up Sister Assassin just because I'm obsessed with assassins. Is that weird? Don't judge me. :p

  3. I love both cover, but I prefer the one on the left, because I really love the girl's eyes and the background :)

  4. Sister Assassin. It looks quirky and interesting.

  5. My vote goes to Sister Assassin. I like the colors. I like the creepy illustration. And, is it just me, or does the girl on the right look kind of like Christina Ricci?

  6. I'm voting Mind Games. The other is cool but I would pass on it. Seems very young to me.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
