Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt
The cover was what first attracted me to this (marvellous) novel and so I am pretty sad that they used a different one for the paperback! I just think the original is a much more unique take on it and the font and blackboard designs are pretty cute. That said, I don't dislike the new cover... it's just pretty standard, I think. Still, I hope it brings in lots of new readers because I LOVED this book! :)
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
I can absolutely, no questions asked, see why they changed this cover. The new one matches the story well with that sideways, haunting image and the tagline about having to choose is fitting too. BUT, I still prefer the original. It's so quiet and peaceful and unassuming and I loved that personally about the book. I love the significance of a single leaf left on the tree and kind of at that point where it may fall off or may stay. I love it.
Gimme a Call by Sarah Mlynowski
I haven't read this novel yet so I can't judge based on that but I really prefer the new (paperback) cover. The first one doesn't stand out much to me and I think it's a bit of a shame having all that white right smack in the middle of the cover. The newer one looks a lot more fun and I love the overall vibe that it has. It makes me want to pick up the book!
And about yesterday's post... Apparently I AM crazy after all. It was totally Wednesday when I was posting LOL. Sorry, I'm seriously losing my mind here.
What do you think of these covers? I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
