Judge a Book By It's Cover: Hardcover to Paperback

I love looking at covers! And I think we all judge books by their covers to some extent. Here are some recent hardcover to paperback changes:

Hardcover:

Paperback:

-I gotta got with the paperback on this one. It just looks more appealing to me.

Hardcover:


Paperback:

-I think both covers are appealing. I think the paperback has more action and the hardcover is more subtle, but both fit the book well. I think I still like the hardcover better.

Hardcover:



Paperback:

 -The paperback looks like a comic book. It's still really cool and I think this cover change is interesting because I think each cover markets to a different group. The first looks like fun and fluffy and the second looks more serious. I'm not sure which one I like more.

Hardcover: 

Paperback:

-I love both of these covers, but I think I like the darkness of the paperback. I do think the hardcover has more of a Sleeping Beauty feel which matches the book.


So which ones do you like or dislike?

  1. I really enjoy these posts. Getting to see the various book cover versions is really interesting. I think the paperback version of Scorpio Races is much more eye-catching.
