This or That – Book Covers #2

Not all book covers are created equal. Some are good, some are bad, some are downright ugly. But, alas, we the readers have no say in the makings of such things. Luckily for us, many books have different editions for us to choose from. The question is, which is better?

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff


Admittedly, I haven’t read this book but I love  both of these covers. They are both so creepy, so dark, so epic. If you have read this book, which one do you think is the best cover? Which suits the story better?

Heartless by Marissa Meyer 


I read this book a few months and really liked it.  The third cover is ugly, so I’m gonna rule that one out real quick. I am actually a fan of both of the other two, although I admit that I like the first more because it’s a bit more simple.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber 


I really like both of these covers, but I have to go with the first one. It basically screams magic and mystery, the very two things this book is about. Also, the first one look a bit more circus like, I think.

  1. I’ve read Nevernight. I think both covers suit the story really well. I’m personally more partial to the UK cover, but they’re both good. As for Caraval, both covers are really beautiful, but again I prefer the UK one, mainly because if you have the actual book, the front half is black and the back half is white and it just looks really cool. Too bad the book sucks.

    1. There are some seriously ugly covers out there. Then there are ones like the Caraval covers that just blow my mind. Making book covers is an art form and I love when they are both beautiful and relevant to the novel. I feel like book cover artists have really stepped up their game in recent years
