Friday Face Off: Take A Bow

You guys, I have legit had this Face Off sitting in draft since like early February. Clearly, it's time to share with the class.
I've had a copy of Elizabeth Eulberg's Take a Bow sitting on my shelves for some time now, and the fact that I haven't had time to work it in makes me kinda sad, because I know it will be quick, and I definitely enjoyed Eulberg's Prom & Prejudice. (I know, me and a Jane Austen retelling, who'dve guessed?) In February (hence the draft), the paperback was released with a revamped cover. I have to say, I think both are cute - and they give off totally different vibes - and while I think maybe the paperback will appeal to a wider audience, the soft glow of the hardcover is just so gorgeous in person.
But what do you guys think? Which would you reach for, and if you've read it, which one suits?
Which one did it better?

Last Week on FFO: The US hardcover and paperback looks for Brenna Yovanoff's fantastic The Space Between went head to head, and though it was closer than I thought it'd be, the gorgeous, scrollwork-laced,  richly detailed original was the winner. But no matter the cover (or title, as it's called "Smoulder" in the UK), you should definitely pick this one up.
Winner -------->


  1. I have to say that I like the revamped cover better. I agree that the other cover is pretty, but for some reason in person I didn't quite like it (I think that the cover was a bit too loose on the ones at my bookstore, so I can't really blame the image for that...nor for my ocd with book jackets).

    I love these face offs :)

  2. I love the one with the girl on the front. Definitely!

  3. I like the one on the left, artistically-speaking, but it also makes me think acting, not music....and by the guitar on the right hand cover, I'm guessing there's a music theme in the book. Personally, a photo-realistic cover will catch my eye over a cover with a lot of white space any day.

  4. The right one has a nice playfullness to it, but I much prefer the more serious looking left one.

  5. I prefer the guitar cover, I guess its because I really like the way the cord makes up the words and it's just more appealing to me for some reason!

  6. Its amazing at how with a simple cover change it can give off a completely different feel to what the books is about. If I had to choose, I prefer the one with the girl on it as, for me, it gives off a more of a theatrical feeling to it :-)

  8. The 2nd looks more appealing! Simple yet creative and catchy.
