Impromptu Unspoken Face Off + Trailer | #WednesdayYA

Hey there, and welcome to a not-so-Friday edition of Friday Face Off! When I was putting together this month's #WednesdayYA introduction, I thought that the covers for this month's pick, Sarah Rees Brennan's Unspoken, would make an excellent Face Off - so here we have it. Take a look at the two covers and then, just like a normal Friday Face Off, let us know in the comments which cover you think nailed it (if any). Which would you reach for? Which would you rather have on your shelves, and if you've read it, which do you think suits the story better?  In short,
Which one did it better? 

UNSPOKEN by Sarah Rees Brennan
Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return.

The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?


Trailer times! Feel free to use the trailer and/or the synopsis in making your decision.

And remember, if you'd like to join the #WednesdayYA book club, we'd love to have you! There's still plenty of time to pick up a copy of Unspoken and join in!
We'll be hosting a twitter chat next Wednesday to discuss the book, but anyone is welcome to chime in at any time, so please, come be part of our club! =D

  1. I'm gonna have to go with the new cover. As much as I enjoy the design of the old one, all that contrast and silhouette goodness, the old cover looks more juvenile (and given the synopsis and the trailer, I gather the book is more creepy than Nancy Drew-ish). And it hurts to say it, because I'm a huge fan of original (and not necessarily photo-based) covers.

    Also, btw, did you notice Sun & Moon, Ice & Snow has a new cover? Might be worth a FFO during Fairytale Fortnight. :)

    1. I love love love the old cover, but reading it, I feel like the new cover is probably a better fit. Not necessarily due to creepiness (though yes on the juvenile thing); I'll talk more about it in the wrap-up, but yeah, as much as it pains me to say it, the new cover's a better fit.

      As for Sun and Moon, well... ------> http://www.thebookrat.com/2013/04/friday-face-off-sun-moon-ice-snow.html

  2. I love the title font on the new cover. But, I really like the color scheme of the original cover. I wish they had used the reds and yellows on the new cover. As is, I think I'd rather own the original cover.

  4. The cover was the reason why I included it in my to-be read list, so I'll go for the first one :D
    I started it today and I'm enjoying it so far. I hope I can make it to the book chat!


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