Which Cover Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sumaya @ Sue’s Reading Corner where participants show different covers of the same book and decide which one they like best.

I’m going to start this off with the cover reveal for A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir:

*squeals*

Actually, the whole series is going to be revamped with redesigned paperback covers.

*faints*

An Ember in the Ashes: Old vs New

 

A Torch Against the Night: Old vs New

 

For both of these books, I have to say I like both covers. I like the originals because I’ve never been a fan of seeing people on covers. However, I like the new versions because there is POC representation. I also like the new covers because of the red/blue/green tints, matching font, and kickass characters/poses/stares. It would have been nice for collectors to have the final hardcover match the original design. But, personally I don’t mind if my covers don’t match; I buy the book that is most easily available to me.

I just finished by review for Cinder & Ella. When I bought the book and later looked on goodreads, the covers were not the same. So, here is my next Which Cover Wednesday:

Cinder & Ella: Old vs New

I’m going to have to go with the new cover for this one. The revamp matches the cover for the second book. The old cover is over-simplistic and cliché. I also don’t like covers that have faces on them. Personally, if this book hadn’t been recommended to me and it hadn’t had this cover change, I would not have bought this book. Usually, I do judge a book by it’s cover, unless I know the author or story beforehand.

 

Which cover do you like better?

And I Darken: UK vs US

 

I prefer the US version. I think the UK cover is fierce and represents Lada’s spirit very well. However, the the face on the cover does not match how I personally picture ugly Lada. On the other hand, the US cover is more simple. It also reminds me of the contrast between Lada and Radu.

 

Now I Rise: UK vs US

 

US cover wins again! The face in the UK cover is creepy. I also prefer the color scheme for the US cover, with the lighter green.

 

Which covers would you choose?
