Same book, different cover #19


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:

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

TheHatingGame 02 TheHatingGame

I choose cover 1. It’s still on the fun side with the female character turning her back on him but looking over her shoulder, so there’s the title but at the same time you see some possible flirting too, which captures what this book will be about really well. The other cover has more of a negative feel to it.

He Started It by Samantha Downing

The first cover feels like a movie cover so it’s obvious I go for cover 2. I’m normally not a fan of faces on covers but they picked the right person for this one. Her stare keeps my eyes on it.

What Might Have Been by Holly Miller

WhatMightHaveBeen 01  WhatMightHaveBeen 02

The most difficult one! I think I’d ultimately go for cover 1 because it’s so nice to look at but I do love the contrast in the second cover which gives a glimpse of the two different lives she’ll lead in the book.

True Crime Story by Joseph Knox

Ah cover 1 of course. The pink is the most obvious reason but I also like that there’s a photo of a person on the cover, it gives it a more realistic touch to it.

You’ll Be The Death of Me by Karen M. McManus

YoullBeTheDeathOfMe 01YoullBeTheDeathOfMe 02

This one’s very easy. Cover 1 looks so much better. I love that many of her books have the same lay-out too. The second cover doesn’t really do anything for me.


So that’s it. Tell me your thoughts! If you can’t get enough, check out the previous book battle #18

  1. Well, I’m going opposite this time!

    1. I never liked the typeface size of cover #1 so was immediately drawn to the symmetry of #2. I also like how they’re facing each other, going head to head.

    2. Though it does give rise to looking like a movie cover, #1 is my choice because of that shovel! You just know she did something and I want to know what!

    3. I agree this one is difficult as I like both. It’s a draw!

    4. I was first drawn to #2 until I read your comment. Now I’m torn!

    5. This author is so consistent with her covers and #2 is the layout formula in the US. It’s the one that tells me McManus is the author.

    This is always fun and I love reading your points of view, Inge💜 You make me reconsider every time!

    • I like the second The Hating Game too if they would lose the thunder clouds above their heads, I think it would give already a different feel and look. I think they needed to have a balance between the white and yellow colour on the covers or something. Thanks for letting me know your preferred covers!
