Same book, different cover #07


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:

Editing Emma by Chloe Seager

I pick cover 1. There’s just a little more flow on that cover.

The Guilty One by Lisa Ballantyne

The Guilty One 02  The Guilty One 01

I choose cover number 2. Difficult to explain why I’m more attracted to that one, maybe because there are children on the cover and it looks like a dangerous situation?

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Definitely cover 1.

In Search Of Us by Ava Dellaira

In Search Of Us 01  In Search Of Us 02

Cover 2. I read that novel as well and I’m really fond of all the colors on the cover. I feel like I’m looking at a true summer beach read.

Portraits of the Dead by John Nicholl

Cover 1. Maybe it’s also because I read this version too but the second one really is too creepy for me. I really like how they redid all the other covers in this detective series, except this 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#6

  1. Bloody hell, that clown staring through the hole is truly traumatizing 😀
    Apart from the Nightingale, all of them has at least a very similar style, so they look like part of a set or something. The Nightingale on the other hand looks like two completely different stories. Interesting.

  2. Second Emma cover looks so simple and perfect! I also love the second cover for The Guilty One, because it matches the title better. As for Kristin Hannah, I definitely prefer the first one. I love the simple, lack of detail in the first cover of In Search of Us. I don’t really like either cover for Portraits of the Dead, but I guess I’d choose the first one!

    • Thank you Sophie, I normally would go for the simplest cover too but I read this version of In Search of Us and the cover is relatable to the story, the hummingbirds, the vibe so that’s why I choose the vivid, colorful cover this time 🙂


  3. I agreed with you today, LOL.
    I think on the Guilty One, the second cover is so much more evocative of guilt. It feels like the left figure is judging the right figure, who might be about to go off the roof. I didn’t see them as children when I looked at it.

    • They are covers from different publishers. I guess it’ll have to do something with country rights so I think they’ll be for different markets (European, US etc) but I can’t see on Goodreads (my source) for which country they are destined. It happens a lot though that there are different covers (not only for format but they also differ in the same format), and I like seeing them. A cover can do a lot!


      • Hmm I don’t know the discussion is really that we like different artwork, I think they simple can’t use the same artwork for a book with different rights and they have to negotiate everything over again with a different publisher. If you look at the answers and the agreement I get from other bloggers I’m not sure we experience them differently. I think it really depends on the individual. They don’t alway have a choice but to have another cover, some covers really don’t need changing. And what about titles: There’s the UK ‘The Man Who Didn’t Call’ and the US ‘Ghosted’. Or another: ‘Baby Teeth’ and ‘Bad Apple’, same book, and for what reason is that?


  4. Great picks! I agree with the first three, and prefer the other in the last two… Number four is me loving anything blue and I’m always a sucker for simple covers with fonts and simple illustrations. The last one was tricky, but I actually like that the clown makes the cover scary haha.

  6. I’m always fascinated by the different covers and since my bookshelves are full of murders I’m really quite glad that publishers have moved away from the black covers on the whole – that said the second choice for Portraits of the Dead is horrific!
