This is my second changing covers post, so I think I might as well make this another category of posts. These posts are dedicated to my thoughts on when a book changes covers when releasing in paperback if they started off in hardcover. Check out my first post here.
Hardcover => Paperback
(First cover shown is original, second is new)
The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller
The first time I laid my eyes on the paperback cover, I flipped out. In a good way. The first cover is simple, but I think the second one is more beautiful and eye-catching. The image inside the Ouroboros symbol gives you a glimpse of a scene that I think leaves you wanting to know more. The silver against the black is very distinct and all the colors flow very well.
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
It seems that 99.99% of the bloggers prefer the old ones. Guess what? So do I. I loved the old ones. I found it interesting that the girl on the cover was purple yet gorgeous. I think the paperback is cool in its own way but I prefer the old one.
The Secret Year by Jennifer R. Hubbard
I just noticed, but the hardcover is dark and the paperback is light. I think it’s interesting the way they went at that and changed the mood of the cover. With these two, I enjoy both. I do have to say the first cover can be awkward if you feel awkward easily. Both of them capture two POV’s and I can see how both relate to the novel. Both covers work for me.
The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June by Robin Benway
For me, the paperback cover is more appealing. The colors in the first cover pop, but I find it weird that the same girl is on it three times. The second cover is more interesting because it looks like the girls are posing for a picture they don’t want taken. I also love how they are all unique with their hair and clothes even when the summary reveals they are sisters.
