Cover Wars



Hardback / Paperback

Amazon have got this up as the Paperback cover. I really love it - it's very haunting and really catches my eye BUT I absolutely LOVE the Hardback cover. It is the main reason for me buying the book - there is just something about it that I can't quite put my finger on but it would win every time!

Also don't you think that they make the book feel completely different?  It took me a minute to realise that the paperback cover was for the same book.

What do you think? Do you have a strong preference? And for those of you who have read it  - which I really need to do and soon! - which suits the story better?

I prefer the Hardback cover. it's more striking and eye-catching than the paperback cover.

But that's me.

I prefer the hard back cover too.

Haven't read the book, but I really do prefer the hardback cover. The other one just doesn't really make the book stand out like the HB does.

Hardback, no contest. And they really, really do look like totally different books...

I like them both, but the hardback is way better! It's more eye-catching and unusual.

I definitely prefer the hard back cover, it stands out and is beautiful. The paperback though striking with the green eyes looks like all those other YA covers that are just faces.

Both for different reasons. The first is most likely to grab my eye but the second is most likely to make me read it.
