The following two books are by no means cover twins, but when I recently saw the cover for Aimee Carter's Pawn (gray background, central maze-like circle as a focal point), it immediately brought to mind another book - Marie Lu's Legend. I think both are striking in that simple, iconic way, and though Aimee's a fellow Michigander, I'm not going to let that bias me (I've actually met both ladies, and both were lovely) - so I'm leaving it up to you! Take a look at the two covers below and let me know your thoughts. Are they close enough for cover twins? Which has you more intrigued about the story? Which would you reach for first?
Which one did it better?
Last Week on FFO: The original (Level 2) and overhauled (The Memory of After) versions of Lenore Appelhans' The Memory Chronicles books went head to head and . . . you guys were pretty torn, to be honest. You liked the titles of the updated versions, but thought the covers were a little "romancey" (though still very pretty), and you wished for a more sci-fi, edgy look with the intriguing new titles. In the end, it was a rare tie - and because I agree with you, I can't even break break the split vote!
