Cover Love: The Accident Season

We kinda took a little Cover Love hiatus there, didn't we? I know everyone was excited for this series (I am, too!), and was all ready to gush over amazing cover designs (same!), so v. sorry that it's been a  few weeks (*ahem* a month and a half...) since we've delved into the pretty, pretty covers.
To make it up to you, today's post is a two-fer!

I've gushed plenty in the past about this book, but I am equally enamored of its covers -- both of them. It's rare that I love a cover re-do as much as the original (or vice versa, if the original sucked...), but I give you:

Both covers capture something about the style and tone of the book, and both are covers that would entice me to reach for a book on the shelves.
How 'bout for you? Do they draw you in? Do you have a preference? We can make this a miniture Friday Face Off (on a Sunday, but whatev), if you'd like -- let me know your thoughts in the comments!

about THE ACCIDENT SEASON by Moira Fowley-Doyle

Every October Cara and her family become inexplicably and unavoidably accident-prone. Some years it's bad, like the season when her father died, and some years it's just a lot of cuts and scrapes. This accident season—when Cara, her ex-stepbrother, Sam, and her best friend, Bea, are 17—is going to be a bad one. But not for the reasons they think.

Cara is about to learn that not all the scars left by the accident season are physical: There's a long-hidden family secret underneath the bumps and bruises. This is the year Cara will finally fall desperately in love, when she'll start discovering the painful truth about the adults in her life, and when she'll uncover the dark origins of the accident season—whether she's ready or not.

  1. LOL! Life happens...
    Yes, I do like both covers and for different reasons. Although, I probably would get a different impression about the book depending on which one I saw without seeing the other.
    You remind me. I wanted to read this and never put it on my list.

  2. I (still!) haven’t read this but I think I prefer the original cover. It intrigues me. I like the gothic (?) vibes of the second but the way she’s clutching her back is kind of odd.

  3. I loved this book! The audiobook narrator really hit it out of the park. I just wish I could match my copy of Accident Season to her new book. They are both amazing.

  4. I LOVED The Accident Season- and what first intrigued me about it is the left side cover (mine, oddly enough, has a red button in place of the "o"). I thought the audiobook was well done, and I basically love how I expected magical realism from the cover and got...well, you know. :)


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