{Cover Wars} Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer

Welcome back to our regular programing in Cover Wars!!!!!!!!!!!
As you already know in Covers Wars two (sometimes more)covers come here in a quest to see which one of them is worthy of your bookish loving, so please remember to vote and comment, you can find the poll at the end of the post and remember that this blogs comment section is powered by disqus so if your information is there I will be sure to repay the commenting favor.
Now let me present to you the two covers that will be fighting for your attention, for this week we have… (drum roll please) Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer. For those of you that have never heard of it or your memory is a little fuzzy here is a look at the book blurb:
Gigi, Bea, and Neerja are best friends and total overachievers. Even if they aren't the most popular girls in school, they aren't too worried. They know their real lives will begin once they get to their Ivy League colleges. There will be ivy, and there will be cute guys in the libraries (hopefully with English accents)! But when an unexpected event shows them they're missing out on the full high school experience, it's time to come out of the honors lounge and into the spotlight. They make a pact: They will each take on their greatest challenge—and they will totally rock it.
Gigi decides to run for student rep, but she'll have to get over her fear of public speaking—and go head-to-head with gorgeous California Will. Bea used to be one of the best skiers around, until she was derailed. It could be time for her to take the plunge again. And Neerja loves the drama club but has always stayed behind the scenes—until now.
These friends are determined to show the world that smart girls really can get what they want—but that could mean getting way more attention than they ever bargained for. . .
Now that we are all have at least some idea about Smart Girls Get What They Want let’s take a look at the covers!
First we have the original cover, they one that even if some might think of it as simple it doesn’t lose when it comes to eye catchiness.

The cover make-over shakes things up and decides to follow the norm of romantic book covers.
Tell us guy which cover is your favorite?? Which one would you end up picking from the bookshelves? Which one of these covers do you think is the best representative for this book?

  1. I think I like both covers. Haven't read the book though....

  2. I will be reviewing it for a monthly meme I've started where the readers get to choose what you read. So if you ever which to join or of it you ever get to read Smart Girls Get What they Want lets discuss it :)

  3. I feel like the new cover is like one of those teen movies where the nerdy girl really isn't a girl that would have been considered nerdy in a real school.

  4. I get it, they both have a certain quality that makes them eye catchy.
    Thank you for commenting Megan :)

  5. I know!! But if we are being super strict about it none of the girls in this covers looks nerdy. The girl in the first cover looks teen movie nerdy as you pointed out and the second girl give a vibe post-Paolo make over from the Princess Diaries.

  6. I like both. I think the original emphasizes the smart. The second emphasizes the romance.

  7. I get it both are eye catching and each as you pointed out have their own thing.

    Thank you for letting us know Alexis :D
