I might have stopped doing these post but I did continue to collect covers of books I read or are on my readlist. So I’m finally back today 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:
Forget My Name by J.S. Monroe
Hmm difficult because it feels basically like it’s the same cover, although it’s not because if you look closely you see the woman is not in the window of the second cover. It took me a minute to even notice this to be honest. Anyway, I think I’ll go for the first one because in this case the woman feels even more intriguing.
The Escape Room by Megan Goldin
I love the first cover! The last one feels too clinical and makes me think it’s more of a sci-fi read and the second cover is very dark but also makes me think of a chase in the woods and the novel is a locked-room mystery so that doesn’t really give the right impression for me.
Never Tell by Lisa Gardner
I choose the second cover here. The first one makes me think I’m going to read a memoir of a ballerina or something. I also really like the tagline which flows so naturally into the book title.
The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton
I love the first and second cover most of all. The third cover is okay but I’ve seen this figure plenty of times on covers already, and it doesn’t even appear in the novel at all.. it should be a clay effigy if they want to do it right. The fourth novel looks like an ’80s novel, that one doesn’t attract me at all.
Watching from the Dark by Gytha Lodge
I prefer the second cover again. I totally get the first cover, although I had to think it through. It’s the spyhole in a door, right, or am I seeing things now? I think I’d like it more if it didn’t have these colours, it gives me more of a YA fantasy vibe. The second cover isn’t really so special, but I still like it, and also the typesetting feels better in this one.
