{Cover Wars} Hold Still by Nina LaCour

Hi guys welcome to Cover Wars the place where you can covers battle it out for your affection. Let’s start by taking a look at last week’s winner, last week we had the Hate List by Jennifer Brown, you guys picked and now here it is!
Thank you to everyone that took the time to vote and for Alexis from Reflections of a Bookaholic for commenting.
This week we have Hold Still by Nina LaCour, for everyone that isn’t familiar with this book here is a look at the book blurb.
An arresting story about starting over after a friend’s suicide, from a breakthrough new voice in YA fiction dear caitlin, there are so many things that i want so badly to tell you but i just can’t.
Devastating, hopeful, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin.
Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend’s suicide. With the help of family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn’t die with Ingrid.
And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid’s descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid—and Caitlin herself.
Now then shall we take a look at the covers that are trying to portray this girl struggle lets take a look at the covers that are trying to give this book a face.
First we have the original cover, the one with the girl looking out trying to get some strength to go one after her confident decided to leave her.
Then we have the book cover make over, the girl that is trying to make time stop while the world keeps moving up around her.
 So please share with us which cover do you like best? Who wore it best? Which of this covers would be more attractive for you to pick out of a shelf? Let us know, be it by voting on the poll or my favorite by leaving us your thoughts in the comment section!


  1. Closed the CoverJune 26, 2013 at 8:34 AM

    Wait...I'm a little confused. In the text of the blog the "original cover" is the blue one with her arms outspread and the makeover is the one of the girl alone. They are reversed in the actual poll. I voted for the image I liked even though it was labeled "original cover." Basically, I like the one of the girl in the black shirt sitting against the wall. It looks like there is more angst and emotion in that cover which would make me more likely to read the story.

  2. Sorry I got the covers right on the poll but I switched them for the blog :(
    I get it, on the cover with the girl alone you can see some of the angst and how lost she looks.
    Thank you commenting and letting me know about the switch :D
