Happy hump day! I’m here to bring you again 5 new book covers (ok I was so fired up I even added an extra one so you get 6 book choices this time). It’s up to you to pick and choose your favorite cover. This is just for fun so there are no wrong answers! OK then, I’ll go first, then it’s up to you:
Bone China by Laura Purcell
I choose cover 2. It has that historical and gothic feel to it which is missing in the third cover, and the first one feels a little too bare and colorless to me, it’s like it was the first draft and the second one is the one where they added all the color and extras and is actually the finished cover.
No Exit by Taylor Adams
I choose cover 2. I actually read the first one but it’s the great reviews that convinced me because I wouldn’t have picked it up based on this cover, it feels too ghostly and if anything, I try to stay away from ghosts. If you feel the same, I can reassure you, it’s a real handprint left on a window and you’ll find out soon enough there’s nothing ghostly about this book.
Then She Vanishes by Claire Douglas
I pick cover 1. The second isn’t too bad either but the purple doesn’t feel as ominous as it should for me. Also I find it more chilling with the promise of someone vanishing in plain daylight than at night.
The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas
I definitely choose cover 2. I do like the tagline of the first one but I’m not a fan of the image. It gives me such an all American feeling and despite the title it feels too cosy and cheerful. The second cover with those little smudges of blood is more ominous and mysterious.
Eight Perfect Hours by Lia Louis
I guess this one depends on how much you love winter and novels set in winter time. I don’t love winter at all so I definitely pick cover 1. Sorry!
House of Correction by Nicci French
Hmm well I’m spoilt for choice this time but I’m going for cover 2. I actually have nr 4 which looks nice as well and certainly stands out in my library with the vivid blue color but cover 2 reflects that feeling of confinement so well that I’m eager to find out more. The third cover makes me expect a story set somewhere in the seventies or eighties for some reason so I wouldn’t really pick this one either.
So that’s it. Tell me your thoughts! If you can’t get enough, check out Battle Of The Books – #16
