Which Cover? #1

Hi! I thought it would be fun to post about different book covers every once in a while :) Recently, it seems like a lot of books have changed their covers. What do you think of the new covers?

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

My Opinion: Older- I think it better represents the book, and it looks really cool :) The eye is pretty, but I don't know what it has to do with the book.

My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody

My Opinion: Both- I like the colors for the first cover, but I think the second one looks great, especially the mouse!

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

My Opinion: Newer- I love the newer cover! It looks really pretty, especially with the water. I don't like the colors on the first cover as much.

Across The Universe/A Million Suns by Beth Revis

My Opinion: Older- I still have to read this series, but I think the older covers are beautiful and shiny. The new covers look kind of plain.

Which covers do you prefer? :)


  1. I hate the new covers for The Across the Universe series! I wish the third book would still come out in the cool cosmic cover.

  2. For Shatter Me, I think both are pretty in their own way, but I prefer the old cover. The eye kind of freaks me out a bit. LOL
    For Unraveling Isobel, definitely the newer one. I agree with your reasons!
    And for Across the Universe series, I prefer the original cover for ATU before they changed to the PB cover. Then again with those plain futuristic covers - I hate the latest change. It's just ugh. I can't stand it. The hardcover of ATU is my fav and I wish they kept it with that theme.

  3. I like both covers from Shatter me.
    The new one from My life undecided is more eye-catching. I love the old cover from Unraveling Isobel. It's more unique with the swirls :) And I don't like the new covers from Across the Universe & A million suns. The older ones are very pretty.

  4. In all the series I love the first covers better, dont ask me ehy I just think the older covers are more captivating! lol

  5. I love all the new covers better. I think they are much more eye catching.

  6. I don't mind if a paperback gets a different cover than the hardback. That can be fun to see.

    However, I LOATHE when a series is already out and the publisher changes the cover for the remainder of the series. Frankly, it ticks me off! I like for my stuff to match and I'll be damned if I buy the new covers to replace the old covers. I am NOT made of money.

    I do prefer the paperback cover of My Life Undecided. I'm glad I haven't bought that one yet. I will buy it in paperback instead of hardback. :)

  7. For the Across the Universe series, definitely prefer the starry, cosmic covers. Looks way more full of possibilities than the straightforward, metal-looking covers.

  8. I like the new cover on Unraveling Isobel.

  9. I love the new covers for all of them except for Across the Universe and A Million Suns. My favourite though would be Unraveling Isobel. I LOVE LOVE LOOOVE IT! It's so cute and I agree I LOVE the water aspect to it as well!

    Great post, Montana! :D

  10. Wow! I really do get very different impressions of those books from the different pics. I always find it interesting to see them side by side like this. I like the Shatter Me eye better but I am not sure how that represents the book's story. On Revis's books, i like the second covers better as the first ones make me believe the book is solely a romance in space and not something deeper.

  11. I prefer the first Shatter Me cover better, the new Across the Universe covers suck (the only reason I was ever drawn into that series is because of the first cover), I prefer the new cover of My Life Undecided, and I definitely think that the new Unraveling Isobel cover is better.

  12. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - I don't care much for the EYE covers, but I do like that they matched the entire series afterwards. I prefered the original one, even though it was kinda plain.

    My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody - I like the original cover better, but the newer one suits what the cover says it is about better.

    Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook - Love the original cover. Such nice colors, except her shirt practically matching her hair. If she had been in a pale purple shirt, that would have been perfect. The new cover is too much like too many covers already out there, nothing memorable.

    Across The Universe/A Million Suns by Beth Revis - The original covers on this series are definitely the prettiest.
