Sarah Rees Brennan has revealed the new cover the U.S. paperback of The Demon's Lexicon will be sporting come April. It represents a significant shift, I think, in style and focus from the hardback cover. I definitely like it better, though the UK cover remains my favorite. I can't help it. I even ordered my own copy. Love The Book Depository! But at the end of the day they all three have their appeal and how lucky, honestly, for such an awesome book to get three such covers? So here they are, from left to right: UK, US hardback, and US paperback. Which one's your favorite?
I can't quit Jennifer Echols . Not that I really try that hard, but I read her new ones and often feel as though I'm still searching for that one in possession of that certain something that will make me feel the way Going Too Far did. Like I couldn't put it it down. And definitely like I didn't hate either of the main characters after the fact. Well, I found it with Such a Rush . I read this 300+ pager in a single night, which clears up the question of whether or not I couldn't put it down. And I finished it definitely not hating either of the main characters. I didn't finish it loving them both unreservedly, though. I loved Leah with my whole heart from page one and that never changed. My feelings regarding one of the Hall brothers remain complicated. More to come on this in a bit. On a side note, I'm delighted that Such a Rush is Ms. Echols' hardcover debut. It's a meticulously designed book, a pleasure to hold in my hands as I stayed up way
Oh how interesting. I'm on the same page as you, Angie. I like the UK cover best ... I think it captures Nick's looks in both style and attitude. However, the upcoming US paperback is a very close second place match. The US hardcover model doesn't capture Nick's persona just right. What I do like about the US hardcover is that it showcases the talisman. This is all in my most humble opinion, of course. ;)ReplyDelete
Well, seeing how I have not read the book. I am basing my opinion on the covers alone. I like the US paperback cover the best. However I do like the UK cover based on art.ReplyDelete
UK all the way. I like the new paperback cover better than the old US one, but still not quite what I imagined for Nick.ReplyDelete
I haven't read this, but just looking at the cover I really like the UK version the most.ReplyDelete
I never liked the picture of Nick with big pouty lips, so I'm glad to see it changed!ReplyDelete
I like the UK cover best! For some reason, I don't like seeing real people in cover art. Too bad I have a US hardcover instead of the UK paperback.ReplyDelete
Can't say I'm a fan of the paperback cover. It looks like he's trying to pull off some Zoolander face; the sucked-in cheeks are not working.ReplyDelete
Bye bye pouty lips! I like the UK version better than all of them, but anything is better than pretty boy.ReplyDelete
I definitely prefer the UK cover, too. But the new PB is definitely an improvement over the Harcover, in my opinion!ReplyDelete
My vote is for the UK cover,ReplyDelete
The US hardback remains my favorite! It's weird - I've been wanting to read this book just because of how much I love the US cover. But now, seeing the US paperback, I'm kind of turned off. It's just terrible!ReplyDelete
I don't know why, but it seems I am different in that I'm not really a fan of the UK cover, either.
I am happy you think it's an improvement - fingers crossed readers will think so too and pick it up!ReplyDelete
UK cover is still the best. I have this one in audiobook from the library, so thankfully I don't have to look at the US cover! Sorry Sarah, but your US covers don't do your book justice, though the new one is better than the first.ReplyDelete
I don't really like the US paperback one. As was mentioned above, he's doing something weird with his face. It's not attractive. He's standing weird, too. It's all wrong for me. :) I think the UK cover is probably the best, although the US hardback isn't that bad, IMO.ReplyDelete
So the UK cover definitely seems to be the consensus so far, you guys. Not that I'm biased or anything...;)ReplyDelete
Brizmus, don't let it turn you off so much that you don't read it! This book is stellar. No matter what jacket it's wearing. :) Grab yourself a U.S. hardback and settle in!
Sarah, fingers definitely crossed. I personally am incapable of not picking up a book with a dude with a sword on the cover. Hopefully others are like minded. In the meantime, I will keep pimping it here, there, and everywhere. I cannot wait for COVENANT!
Brenda, the cheeks are a bit...hollow. I agree with you and Chelle. But they kept the ravens, which made me very happy, and they added the sword, which is clearly awesome. I should just go buy myself a copy of each and call it good. Then I'd always have a lending copy available and never have to be without my own.
I think I still like the UK cover best. The US pb isn't bad, just a bit more generic. I ordered the UK version from Book Depository because I didn't like the US hardback cover. Every time I see it I think of the guy on Smallville.ReplyDelete
I am not thrilled with the US pb cover, but it is ok enough for me to purchase for my library. I refused to purchase the HB - no way I could booktalk it with a cover like that. I just couldn't *shudder*. I can definitely do the US pb cover and will at my summer reading visits in May.ReplyDelete
I definitely haven't read that book but I think I'm gonna give it a try and begin to read only books of my interest like The Demon's Lexicon. I've been told so many things about that book and this times I'm gonna take advantage of this reference.ReplyDelete
Oh hell!!! You are just too cool man. I never knew that there could be something better to know about than from this piece of article. I shall have this forwarded to all my friends and even my dad, I am sure they too shall enjoy reading this piece.ReplyDelete
