Hello and welcome to Cover Wars where covers battle it out in hopes of knowing which one is the best face for the books you love. Right now we have a winner in our hands that has been trying to scream it to the world so let’s go ahead and reveal the winner for The Scarlet Dagger by Krystle Jones.
The winner is…
The Bad Ass Cover!!!
Now that we’ve all basked on the winning cover’s glory it is time to move into this week’s contestant Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan, the first book in the The Lynburn Legacy series. For those of you that don’t really recall this book here you have the book blurb darlings:
Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.
But all that changes when the Lynburns return.
The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?
After reading that creepy blurb it is time to take a look at the covers that are trying to give a face to this story. First up we have the first cover this book ever had, the one that depicts a lot of elements that are shown to us in the blurb yet still finding a way to keep an air of mystery to it, here we have the red cover.
Next up we have the cover that goes more along the lines of a typical romance novel, and that in my opinion shows more a movie teen version of the characters (a.k.a. the people in the cover are obviously not in their teens!!), I present to you guys the yellow cover.
Last but not least we have the black and white cover, the cover that tries to cover the underline of creepiness that we read on the book blurb, but doesn’t carry as much symbolisms that we see in the red cover.
Now that the covers are in the table, tell us which one is your favorite, is there one that you are just craving to have in your bookshelf? Or one that you think it best describes the book? Please remember to vote and comment.
