Lauren Barnholdt cover change + Book Blogger Hop!

Well, this may be oooold news as I've been completely out of the loop lately, but I've just found out that the two books by Lauren Barnholdt that I'm looking forward to (One Night that Changes Everything & Watch Me) have gone through a major cover change!

Here are the NEW COVERS:

And to refresh your memory, these are the OLD COVERS:


Now tell me, which do you prefer?
In the case of One Night, I think I prefer the new cover, which looks more fun(ky), but the old one had this air of mystery around it and it felt more sinister, which was intriguing ... But the new one's fine by me!
As for Watch Me, I really really reeeeally like the old cover and even though the new one may be more fitting, I still prefer the old one. The new one's not horrible or anything, but it's no match for the old one, bah!

ETA: I just found out that the author explained all the reasons for the cover changes on her blog - see here & here. Fascinating!


ps: It's Book Blogger Hop day - don't forget to join in the fun @ Crazy-for-Books.com! And HELLO to all the lovely bloggers who are visiting from the Hop - hope you'll be sticking around! :)

I think the original two are sooooooooo much better! They also changed her Aces Up cover but I think that one was for the better.

Hm, I like the old cover for One Night and I like both the covers for Watch Me, so I'm happy with either one :)

Nina said...

Why did they changed the covers? I like, adore the old ones way more than the new ones. I probabley would buy the books faster with the old cover.

I love both, for different reasons.
Watch me: The new one is more sophisticated, but the old ones more fun
One Night: The OLD one is more sophisticated, but the new ones more fun.
