Thanks to everyone who gave their opinions yesterday!
Cover Comparison Thursday is a weekly meme (now!) hosted by me to showcase international covers of a certain book, and share our opinions on each.
I like all of this, especially the two small hearts. But I do not like the image of Bella on the front... the cartoon picture just makes the book look childish.
VERDICT: It's debatable... I may or not pick it based on the cover. It probably depends on my mood.
Not crazy about this cover at all. It looks more like a comic book than an actual novel. I assume the two characters on the cover are Bella and Edward, and if so, they're not accurately portrayed. For one, they have the same skin color on the cover, but seeing as only one is a vamp it doesn't really work. Also Edward is not a blonde. I do like the simple white background though.
VERDICT: Yeah not happening.. I wouldn't buy the book with this cover. Sorry.
I do like this cover. I love the contrast of the red lips and rosy cheeks to the porcelain skin, and because of these features it's not necessarily Bella. It focuses on beauty, which plays a large role in the Twilight saga. My only complaint is that it wouldn't really stand out amongst brighter covers in the YA section
VERDICT: I would definitely pick up this book. I am a fan, especially of how mature the cover seems.
I also love this cover, it's very similar to the German cover in that it revolves around beauty of the figure on front, who almost looks like a marble statue. However, the cover scheme-- the greens, yellows, and red-- don't really make sense to me, but I don't have much of a problem with them.
VERDICT: I would also pick this up because of the cover. It's lovely and elegant, regal almost.
Although I like this cover, I most definitely do not like it for this particular book. The candy hearts are more suited for a chick flick, not a paranormal mystery.
VERDICT: I would buy this book with this cover, as it in no way offends the story, but I do not support it. The mood it presents does not fit Twilight.
All the hair is a turn off, though I do like how it forms a heart. I'm not sure who the woman is supposed to be... Rosalie, maybe? Perhaps the descriptions of the characters are different for each country, but this woman does seem like she belongs on the cover of Twilight. I also don't like the clash of the yellow of the hair against the red sky. I do like the red sky alone though.
VERDICT: I probably take a look at this book with the certain cover, though I might be a little hesitant, maybe because the woman is naked?? Not a bad cover though.
The Netherlands -->
LOVE this cover... love the black background against the pale arms, love the symbolism of the apple, love the heart shaped bite.
VERDICT: 100% buying this.
Um, I don't know anyone in Twilight that has blue eyes... The person on the front does resemble Bella a lot, apart from the eyes, but it's not very appealing. I also hate the font and color of the title. Barf-ola. The trees in the background are fine.
VERDICT: Hmm... this depends. Probably not going to pick this one up and read the blurb. So I'd probably not buy it in the end.
I'd love to hear your opinions. My favorite is the Netherlands cover.
