Same book – different cover #11


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

Gone by Midnight by Candice Fox

gone by midnight   gone by midnight 02

I’m going for cover n° 1. I totally get cover 2 and it is much creepier but I like the psychological thriller vibe more than the creepy horror vibe so that’s why I choose the first.

Goodbye, Perfect by Sara Barnard

goodbye perfect 01  goodbye perfect 02

Oh cover 1 without a doubt. It has such lovely soft colours, so inviting!

Never Tell by Lisa Gardner

never tell 02  never tell 01

OK cover 2 because the red just screams danger and fire (and I know there’s plenty of both in the novel).

The Truth about Love and Dogs by Lilly Bartlett


Well this is a special one. The author sent them to me asking for my and also your opinion so I really want to hear what YOU have to say about this one because for me, this is the most difficult one and I don’t really know what cover to choose. In the end I chose cover 2 because with such a title (which I adore btw) I really want to see a dog on the cover to make it extra sweet. If you look closely there’s one on the first cover too but you really have to look hard (well I didn’t see it at first sight). I just think I’d pick it up sooner at the bookstore if I saw the second one.

The Girl He Used to Know by Tracy Garvis Graves

The Girl He Used to Know  The Girl He Used to Know 02

Very different covers… but I really like the first one. The first seems like a love story, the second feels like the book is tragic and sad…


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 – #7#8#9#10

  1. I agree with you on numbers 3 and 5, but I love the creepy vibe cover on number 1 for that reason. Number 2 I’m a sucker for anything yellow and flowery like! And number 4, I just really like the dotted about pictures on the green park background.

  2. Oh, I love these posts, Inge. They’re fun, and I love to see the different covers, which sometimes aren’t so different, and at other times, you wonder did a blind person create them? lol!

    As for choices? Hmm, #1, #4, #6, #7 and yes, #9 like you, because it seems more upbeat to look at.

    • Thanks Hayley, me too, it’s weird how you want to read a novel with one cover and wouldn’t pick it up if it had a different one sometimes. I had the same feeling about Goodbye Perfect but I like pastels (and pink) so much I had the same reaction with the other one :-).


  3. Another great edition! I’m the same for most covers, although I actually like the first The Truth About Love And Dogs cover a tiny bit better (mostly because I love teal covers).

    • Thanks Yvo! It was difficult to choose that one… I prefer a different kind of dog actually and I think the background and the dog is a bit too much the same colour but it’s still the cover I think I would pick up first if both of them were next to each other… I can totally live with your pick though!

  4. Oooh what a great post, I really enjoyed seeing the different covers and gaining a little insight into the process. I agreed with a lot of your choices, but prefer the 1st cover for “the truth about love and dogs” it seems less sentimental (although obviously I don’t know what the book is like).

      • It’s hard to judge isn’t it when you don’t know what the book is about. Perhaps that’s why they say ‘never judge a book by it’s cover’ (although I think deep down lots of people do exactly that, I know I do).
