Happy hump day! I’m here to bring you again 5 new book covers. It’s up to you to pick and choose your favorite one. This is just for fun so there are no wrong answers! OK then, I’ll go first, then it’s up to you:
Sleepless by Romy Hausmann
These are very different and I normally always go for dark covers but – surprise – I’m more attracted to the second one this time. The second cover feels more original, and I also love that it fits perfectly with this author’s first book of Dear Child, which had a white cover as well with a matchstick house in the center.
Space Hopper by Helen Fisher
So apparently, since the US doesn’t know what a Space Hopper (bouncy ball/skippy ball) is, there’s a different title and a different cover (it actually shows the item whereas the UK version doesn’t, isn’t that funny). Anyway, I’m choosing cover 1. It’s colorful and it makes me expect a fun read.
Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson
There’s not a whole lot of difference between the covers but I still like cover 2 most of all. Maybe it’s the larger font, maybe it’s the blood red that makes it a more vivid cover, I don’t know but I’d reach out for that one first if they were next to each other.
The Shape of Darkness by Laura Purcell
Cover 1! The second cover has a seventies spy-vibe for me and I’m not fond of it. The third gives me a historical vibe but it can’t compete with the more inviting first cover.
Circus of Wonders by Elizabeth Macneal
I have the paperback with cover 2 and it looks so much prettier than what you see here. It has a golden shine in the letters and is really amazing. I love that it shows the circus and the familiar stripes but that they chose green instead of red (and blue) on the cover, it makes it so much more elegant and beautiful. I didn’t see Nell there at first on the cover but it’s great to discover some little extra detail like this when you look closer.
So that’s it. Tell me your thoughts! If you can’t get enough, check out Battle Of The Books – #15
