New Blog Segment? Cover Comparisons

So we all know how much I love a good book cover. What I also love is comparing all the different covers for the same book; you get to see how different designers approached the same project, the similarities, the differences, I dunno... its fun. I think I'm going to create a new blog segment that compares the different covers for the same book. What do you guys think? Would that be interesting to you?

Lets give it a go, shall we...

Here are five different covers that I found for Cat Patrick's YA novel Forgotten.

Aside from the 1st, and 3rd, which share some big similarities, the rest of them are all very different from one another. The 1st design is the hardcover copy that I read. I don't know if the rest of these are from different countries (I know some of them are) or if they're just the paperback version/special edition. 

I think my favorite would have to be the 2nd one. I just love the mirror image of the girl and how one is black & white while the other is in color, to me it really represent the aspect of the past and the future. I imagine the one in black & white to be her past self that is slipping away cause she can't remember, while the color one is her present or future self. 

Which one is your favorite? Why?

I also wanted to post the cover of Cat's new book Revived. Right now its available for pre-order but not due out until May 2012.

Synopsis (from Cat's offical website)

As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.

A secret government agency has developed  a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency's true goals, she realizes she's at the center of something much larger- and more sinister- than she ever imagined.

Sounds very interesting and the cover is gorgeous! I'm definitely adding this one to my TBR =)


  1. I am liking the first cover the most (A) But the second one is also great :D I did love Forgotten :) And OH! Revived sounds amazing! Hadn't read the synopsis before now, so thank you ;D
    And thank you for commenting on my WoW. <3 I loved Divergent so, so much. And I would have read it all the time, if I wasn't scared it would make me like it less (A) Hih.
    Love, Carina

  2. I love this idea of a new segment...almost as much as I love book covers! I think you should definitely do it. I like the 1st cover the best, but that might be because it's the most familiar to me. I just love the font they picked out and how it covers part of the girl's face.

    This is Your Brain on Books

  3. I'm glad you both liked the segment! I'm so excited about it =D

    Carina- Haaaha, I know what you mean. I am one of those people who will play a new favorite song over and over and over until I hate it. Then I get mad at myself for hating it.

    PepsiVanilla- I like how the font is covering the girl's face as well. There are parts I like about all of them except number 4, that one is just so unoriginal.
