Same book, different cover #06

battle-of-the-books

I’m back with 5 new book covers for you to pick and choose your favorite one. This is just for fun so there are no wrong answers! OK, I’ll go first:

The Cactus by Sarah Haywood

The Cactus 01  Cactus 02

I kind of like both covers but if I really neeeed to choose I’ll go with cover 2. I like how the title of the book is written in a cactus shape 🙂

Only Child by Rhiannon Navin

Only Child 01 Only Child 02

Cover 2. It’s the one I read so I’m naturally attracted to that one. I like more abstract covers more as well probably.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

A Man Called Ove 01 A Man Called Ove 02

Cover 1, without a doubt. The guy on the second one looks so drab, he doesn’t attract me at all and I’d walk right past this one!

The Woman Before Me by Ruth Dugall

Lots to choose from and that makes it even more difficult but I’m going with Cover 1. That face looking at me just makes me want to pick it up and flip those pages.

Winter People by Jennifer McMahon

Winter People 01   Winter People 02

Difficult! I kind of like them both. I’ll go for cover 1 because it’s even more atmospheric although I like the bloody O very much in the second one :-).

So that’s it. Tell me your thoughts! If you can’t get enough, check out Battle Of The Books #1 – #2#3 – #4 – #5

  2. The Cactus – 2
    Only Child – 2
    A Man Called Ove – 1
    The Woman Before Me – I actually don’t like any of these 😂. If I had to choose, I’d go with the first one although I prefer the picture of the second cover but there’s way too much text on it.
    The Winter People – 1 (such a great book!)

    • They’re a mix of thriller / contemporary. Only Child is about the effect on a small child – told by his POV – of the death of his brother in a high school shooting. It’s the only one I read yet. The rest are books I saw on other people’s blogs and when I added them to my goodreads wishlist I saw the other covers :-). Thanks for making your choice!

  3. OMG, the cactus one is adorable! I can’t even decide which one i like more ❤

    Winter people: i prefer the first one, but i think the second one suits the genre/style more. The first one looks like some modern crime/scandi noir thing.

  4. I like the first cover in the first 4 categories (it’s the one blooming flower for the cactus cover, the nice house picket fence which makes me think something bad is coming on only child, the second ove covers looks like a bad remake of the odd couple, agree with you on the woman before me) and then the 2nd cover in the last(all the red against the snowy background – deliciously creepy).

  5. I’ve been wanting to read The Man Called Ove for ages, but if it had that ugly second cover I’d avoid it in a huge circle. 😂 I guess the cover does have a lot of importance when choosing a book. 🙂 I agree with all your choices except the cactus one, I like the first one better. 😁

  6. So many great covers. I am sitting on the fence with those first two – I just can not decide. 🙂 I may pick the first cover for Cactus but then again, the second one is also great…. uuugh, this is tough! 🙂

    Re. the last one: I would probably pick the second one… it somehow speaks to me and that bloody ‘O’ is also appreciated. 🙂 But again, the first one is very atmospheric…

    Really tough choices Inge, great selection. 🙂 xx

  8. Love this feature… I bet I say that every time, but a reminder doesn’t hurt! 🙂
    I was agreeing you with all books apart from Woman Before Me.. being brutally honest, I kind of don’t like any of the 4 covers for this title… although if I really-really had to choose, I’d go for nr 1, too… so yeh, still, agreeing with you 100% 😀

    • Haha I should check if you say that every time, but I don’t mind at all, you may keep on saying it. Woman Before Me isn’t one of my fav novels either.. I don’t know where I got the idea to post that cover, must have seen someone read it and then I ckecked it out, I assume. Thanks for being so agreeable with me this week 😄
