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

I've got more hardcover to paperback changes! What do you think of these?


Hardcover

Paperback


-I think both of these are well done and reflect the bleakness of the landscape in the story.

-As fun as I think the paperback is, I think it's marketing more to an adult audience. It looks like your typical adult mystery bestseller. The hardcover looks like lots of fun and like the book will have lots of action (which it does)

-I'm not a big fan of either covers, but I gotta got with the hardcover because it's creepier.

-I like the hardcover on this one. The paperback is too simple and I think the hardcover has a cool computer/techy/time travel feel to it which matches the book.

-The paperback for this one changes the entire look of the book! Now it looks like a steamy romance novel instead of historical fiction about Catherine Howard. I'm sure the paperback will get people to pick it up, and there is a lot of intrigue in the book, I'm just not sure it matches the steaminess on the cover.

  1. I don't really like the Au Revoir and Gilt changes. Hmm...

  2. I think I dislike the Gilt cover change the most-it looks too steamy historical romance and the book is so much more.

  3. I agree, the paperback version of "The Future of Us" is really weak. The hardcover version is much more exciting.

  4. I think you nailed it with your post and I totally agree! Sometimes I come across a paperback cover that I would have liked if I hadn't seen the hard cover first, like Au Revoir. Blood Red Road is the only one where I like both versions.
