Battle of the Covers

Children’s books often get cover redesigns, depending on the region, depending on the popularity of a title, depending on a lot of things I have no idea about. Sometimes the second cover is a better choice, while other times, the redesign strikes out. Let us know what you think of these cover redesigns in our very first Battle of the Covers. The original cover is always the first option.

First up, Raven Boys. The cover redesign took place when the book was released in paperback. The change isn’t too drastic, but which do you prefer?

For our next match-up, we have a three-cover comparison. The first Harry Potter book was eventually released with the more “adult” cover, and there has recently been a new edition with an updated cover (the third). Which is your favourite?

And our final cover battle for this round: the Stormdancer covers. Recently, someone mentioned that they found the cover of this book unappealing, whereas I tended to find it attractive. So I searched to see if there were any alternate versions of this cover. Needless to say, I found some other options. Which of these covers do you find more appealing?
