Do you like looking at covers as much as I do? Well I’ve collected some of them that I’ve come across so here’s 7 books to look at and to decide which one you like better:
Behind her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough
I definitely like the first one more. Maybe it’s the bit of colour that does it or the fact that her closed eyes make it all the more mysterious. Also, it matches the title better too in my opinion. The second one is the US cover and expresses fear to me whereas the first isn’t fear but more something she doesn’t want to see or something that is going on in her mind.. all options are open if I look at this one.
Blood Moon by John David Bethel
Definitely the first one again. The second one is too dark for me and doesn’t attract me so much, I’d rather have the horror house on my cover ;-).
Missing, presumed by Susie Steiner
Difficult choice this one.. I get that desolate feeling with both covers but I think I’m going to go with the abandoned platform this time. It’s kind of funny because the Kindle edition is the second cover but there’s a person on the platform. I think it’s better this way though without anyone in it.
Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglas
The second cover again. I like the flowers in rememberance of the girl.. it makes it just a little more interesting and real. The first cover doesn’t give any information and only really piques my interest with the tagline, not with the image.
The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins
I especially didn’t include the film edition cover because I don’t like that one (with the face of the woman who’s playing Rachel on it). I get what they are trying to do here with these covers and although I don’t really particularly love either of them I’m going with the second one.. it’s the view from the train where the landscape is passing by in a blur and is the most original one I guess.
The Never List by Koethi Zan
I know which one I don’t like (the second one) but choosing the one I like most? Hmm, I’m going with the first one!
Death Note/Love You To Death by Caroline Mitchell
The third cover is the only one that you can still buy… I read the second cover of Love You to Death and I’m still going with that one, although I really like the first one with the heart in a knot too.
It’s actually kind of predictable which cover I’m going to like. It’s always the novel that I read and which I first came across. It feels like the novel is always attached in my mind to that cover and I don’t want to see it with another one. Crazy right :-).
So what do you think? Any opinions? I don’t mind at all if you don’t share my opinion so shoot away!
