Cover Comparison

Just spotted the cover for the Audrey, WAIT! Paperback.

Which one do you like better?




Edited to add:

I also noticed that they seem to have changed the cover for "HOTTIE" a razorbill titleby Jonathon Bernstein.

The original is on the left, the updated version on the right. Your preference?

The first one! Way more edgy and eye-catching.

The first Hottie (the second one looks like a cheap Halloween costume and the girl just looks vapid...) and the pb Audrey Wait. I loathed the HB cover; it makes my head hurt.

I'm with you on both. The photograph version on the HOTTIE cover made me crinkle my nose. . . I did like the AW hardcover in a "hmm...that's intersting" way, but the PB makes me want to stare at it. ha.

The first is MUCH better, for both of them! Why would they mess with the cover for the Audrey PB-- it's genius!!

definitely the first on both, though the Audrey Wait photo cover is nice, it just doesn't...make me think 'WAIT! pick me up!'

I agree with everyone else. The first one for Audrey is eye catching. I remember stopping in a store and actually flipping through it because of the cover (and then bought it). I don't think the second cover would stop me.

And the 1st one for the Hottie cover as well.

That first Audrey cover is wonderful... Not much could 'compete' with it. The UK edition (which came out in paperback here when the hardback released in the US) isn't as good either, though it's quite fun in its own way:

for both books I like the one on the left. I love the background of Audrey Wait it really grabs my attention!

The second Hottie cover is a disaster. The first one looks intriguing and like something I'd want to pick up--the second one I would probably leave on the shelf (even though you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover...)

Couldn't agree more. The photo of the girl is HORRIBLE and cheeeeeesetastic!

I like the first cover in both instances. I generally don't like photographs of people on the cover. That's probably for the same reason that the Twilight movie forever ruined the characters for me--what was in my imagination was way better than how it was cast!

I prefer the original hottie cover by a lot. The first one seems cartoonish and edgy and fun and the second one looks more like chic lit, which i don't think it is (!)

I'm so sad- I *loved* the original HOTTIE cover and found it all kinds of intriguing- and it matched the tone of the book so very well. The second one isn't nearly as eye-catching to me, and the main character is much less how I pictured her than in the carton version...
