Boundless by Kenneth Oppel
I like the action vibe of the paperback - it'll appeal to an entirely different kid that the hardcover - but I'm still partial to the hardcover.
Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore
I'm a bit divided about this one. I feel like the hardcover gives a better idea of what the book is about, but there's something striking about the paperback. I'm not sure I can choose which I like more!
Don't Stop Now by Julie Halpern
I prefer the paperback cover - it's definitely more eye catching than the hardcover - but I don't get what's going on with the 'O'/hole. What's it supposed to be underneath? What am I missing - feel free to help me out in the comments!
Famous Last Words by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
So, I'll be honest, I'm not sure I love either of these covers, which is upsetting because I absolutely adored this novel. I like the concept of the first one, but I'm not sure I did there being a real girl on the cover. With the second one, I kind of wish the title and the rest of the text was bigger or something. Maybe I just feel like it's too pink. I'd like to see a third option, please!
Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson
While the original cover is definitely creepy and compelling, I'm kind of digging the boldness of the paperback. On a whim, I think I'd be more likely to pick up the paperback. I think it's the ferris wheel in the background that sold me.
Skies Like These by Tess Hilmo
I remember liking this cover I saw it released for the hardcover, but it's got nothing on this paperback edition. No doubt about it, I need this one in paperback. Can't wait to stock this one at the bookstore.
Tease by Amanda Maciel
While the hardcover cover is definitely flashy - literally - I'm a fan of the new understated yet dramatic paperback cover. I love that half of the girl's face is in shadow. Win!
The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher
I definitely prefer this paperback, though I'm not 100% sold on either. I wish that the original tagline was on the paperback, I think that was the bit I actually liked on the original.
The Last Wild by Piers Torday
This redesign is interesting because it keeps the same color scheme and, from what I can tell, fonts. I really did love the hardcover version, but, after seeing the paperback, I do think it's improved. In this instance, I think the busier, fuller design is more appealing.
The Nethergrim by Matthew Jobin
The original cover is cool, but the paperback cover has way broader appeal in my opinion. I could easily pitch the paperback cover to fans of fantasy and adventure, but the original doesn't convey that as well.
The Well's End by Seth Fishman
I like the new cover much better, except for the awkwardly placed hands in the corner. I haven't read this yet, so maybe the hands make sense... Guess I'll have to read it to find out!
