Friday Face Off: Unspoken


Came across the new (?) cover for one recently and knew it was just begging for a Face Off.
This is maybe not the fairest competition, because honestly, silhouette covers are full of win - but maybe there are those of you who thought the silhouette cover was a little too juvenile? Or dare I say, generic? (Please, say it ain't so!) But I suppose, if we're talking "generic," the new cover may not have a leg up in that department...
Now, I don't know where this new, non-silhouette cover is available - it's listed as ebook and kindle on Goodreads, so maybe it's US, maybe it's UK. I dunno. But that is irrelevant, because what we really want to know is which you'd reach for? Which makes you want to read it?  Talk amongst yourselves and then tell us in the comments,
Which one did it better?



Last week on FFO: The cover redesigns for Stephanie Perkins' romance trilogy battled it out, and you guys were actually pretty torn on them. Between the votes in the comments, a couple of twitter votes and mine own thoughts, I'm pretty sure we ended up with a dead-tie.
So, everyone's a winner, or no one is. You decide. =D

  1. I definitely go for the one with the cover in pink and the girl entering through a gate. I really love this cover. The first time I saw it, I fell in love with it :)

  2. That's the UK cover - the new design hasn't been released yet. I love silhouette covers.

  4. No, no, no, no, no. The silhouette cover all the way.

  5. I really like the new Anna cover, too, Cayce. And I like how the books look together as a series.

  6. I like the silhouette cover though it does look a little juvenile. But The Nightmare Affair looks like that, too and I thought it was MG, so my mistake on both. And I need to read both! But as far as generic I think the new cover is generic. Boy and girl in embrace in some spooky/gothic setting. That looks more generic.

  7. I love the red cover. It seems pretty unique compared to the rest of the YA books out there. Cover models can be cool, but I prefer the silhouetted illustration of the red better. Besides, the cover on the right looks like one of those awkward, self published covers. The blending of the models into the trees looks goofy.

  8. The purple and black cover is better. I mean, I like the background on the other one but I think it's branching into the cliché genre of covers.

  9. Oh I think the US cover is one of the most beautiful of 2012, and the UK one is so embarrassingly bad I would never pick it up off a shelf if I didn't know Sarah Rees Brennan already.

  10. I love the red one so much. I would be 100% more apt to read it. The other I wouldn't give it a seocond glance...

  11. Oh no! I love that cover, it was the only reason I was planning on get that book. (Got lazy to read the blurb and add it to wishlist anyways :P)
    I think the new version looks more generic that the one with silhouette (c'mon, silhouettes are awesome)

  12. The original cover does it better. I'm not a fan of the colour in the new cover and it just generally does not appeal to me. The original is whimsical and lovely, but I do have bias towards silhouette covers.

  13. i really love the pink cover! the other one i don't like. the colours are not my taste and i don't really like the photo either..

  14. I definitely prefer the silhouette cover this time around. The second one is a bit of a mess... I dislike when an artist tries to cram too much onto a cover and makes all sorts of things fading in and out of each other. Just why?!

  15. Definitely loved the silhouette cover on the left! I also liked the font of the title better than the one on the right.

  20. Defiantly the pink one it is way better than the other one in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The pink one. I can see how it would deter boy readers, but the design is so much more original.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The cover with the silhouette is much nicer but isn't exactly original.
    The one on the right is horrible though. I hate it when real people are used on covers.
