{Cover Wars} Severed Heads, Broken Hearts / The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider

So the title and cover changes keep on coming, I seriously don’t get this new trend specially for a book with a title as awesome as “Severed Heads, Broken Hearts” now before you catalog me as a psycho for liking this title it’s just that it actually does its job, it is both memorable and spikes your interest. Even if you would never pick this book up because of its title you will remember it for some time.
Now let’s take a look at the book summary before I keep on rambling:
Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and his social life.
No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra found himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.
But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?
Now let’s take a look at the contestants first we have the book that makes you wonder “What in god’s name could the author have writer to give this book a name like that”
And the cover that is showing us that life can be a roller coaster ride:
A thing that upsets me is that the author Robyn Schneider was really excited about the cover reveal for Severed Heads, Broken Hearts and had a lot of support in her cover contest, you get to see wonderful and interesting interpretations of her story based solely in the book blurb.
Well guys what do you think about this covers and title change?? Comment, vote, tweet, but let us know how you feel about this.

  1. OMG! Had i seen this post sooner I would have ranted! >.< I really don't like it when covers change ESPECIALLY for covers that were a SUPER HYPED event. I really liked the original one but the new one is just too yellow! In the UK the name hasn't changed only the cover. Ugh, I didn't even KNOW the cover had changed until recently, when i couldn't find it on goodreads :/
