Friday Face Off: Mind Games vs. Unremembered

* Yes, I know this is late. Why didn't someone tell me it was Friday?

This week's Face Off is a bit of a nod back to the beginning, when sometimes the books were stock photos and sometimes they were US/UK/etc versions, but most of the time, they were just really similar in some other way - some trend designers just can't seem to give up. This one nose no bounds - get it? Nose! 'Cause there is no...nevermind. Basically, an extreme close-up of a pretty face, with words right in the middle of it is a pretty popular cover design. One that gets mixed reactions, to say the least. Personally, I like these two covers. But I know many of you will not. Up for chitty-chat this week: Kiersten White's upcoming Mind Games (remember this one; you'll be seeing it again soon...) and Jessica Brody's Unremembered. Both take a pretty girls face, obscure it, and then cover over the dreaded nose with wordage.
So which of these would catch your eye on the shelves? Which would you reach for (or would they both drive you nuts)?
Which one did it better?

Last Week on FFO: The US and UK versions of Brenna Yovanoff's upcoming Paper Valentine went head to...hand, and hands down, heads won. (See what I did there? Eh? Eh? Man, I am on a roll. ;P)


  1. Mind Games is the one that catches my attention :)

  2. Mind Games. I like the pixelization of the face. And the Unremembered face looks too blurry. That's probably intentional, but it still bugs me.

  3. Mind Games. The other hurts my eyes cause I keep trying to bring it into focus.

  4. By far Unremembered! It depicts the word "Unrememered" so well...as the girl fades into the background. Its so amazing!

  5. I prefer the cover for Unremembered. I'm not really a fan of the pixelation and the overly bright colors on Mind Games. However, I am far more excited for the release of Mind Games. Just a few short months away!

  6. I have to go with Mind Games. Like Juju above mentioned, Unremembered makes me want to bring it into focus. Plus I love that Mind Games has smaller pictures in it. More to look at!

  7. For me, the book by Kiersten White. I like the face of the woman :)

  8. I like Mind Games because the other makes my eyes think they are going blind and they panic a little.


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