COVERS BATTLE IT OUT [5]: The Dark Light by Sara Walsh + Giveaway!

Hello & welcome back to...COVER BATTLES! Yes, I know this isn't new since many bloggers do these types of posts BUT i really wanna hear YOUR thoughts on these cover changes! So I'll just put the two covers up, choose my pick and THEN U CAN VOTE! If you want to see previous cover battles just use this CLICK HERE. Now, this week's battle is...
THE DARK LIGHT by Sara Walsh

HARDCOVER vs. PAPERBACK
MY CHOICE:
I LOVED the original HARDCOVER version of the cover. It was unique and It really peaked my interest. PLUS it was dark & mysterious, which I quite liked :) I like the New Paperback version too but I feel like i've seen it. Oh yeah, it kinda looks like the cover for THE SUMMONING.
I get that they wanted to make it look more fantasy-ish and that's okay but I would have kept that AWESOME tattoo of the dragon-bird thing somewhere on the new cover, maybe inside the stone? idk. The color scheme from dark to light, was a REALLY BIG change and gave the book a different feel too. Anyways, I like them both BUT i'm going to stay LOVING the original.
THAT'S ME. NOW YOUR TURN! VOTE BELOW AND/OR COMMENT!!

  1. I love the first cover better mostly because it has a hot guy on it lol, but I think the paperback cover holds its own too. Thanks for the giveaway Lisseth! :)

  2. I have to say the hardcover one is so much more intriguing the paperback one looks more like a contemporary novel! I haven't read this one yet but if I saw them both in a store the hardcover would make me want to read it! But I love the font for the paperback!

  3. I really do like the first cover but the problem is taking it outside. It would be really embarrassing so I would definitely buy the paperback. Thanks for the giveaway! and you are right, the paperback version DOES look like the summoning!

    1. hmm, when you think like that, it would make sense to change the cover :P So I would get the paperback for when i want to read it somewhere public. And it does right?! Thanks for commenting Juhina!! Much bloggy <3333!

  4. Totally agree! The 2nd one really makes me think of the covers for The Darkest Powers series, because of the similar concept! :O
