Cover Love!

Yes, that's right. More cover love!!!

I've read and loved all of the books I'm showing you today.
So let's get started with Evernight by Claudia Gray. The first in a series. The fourth book 'Afterlife' will be published this March.
And here are the covers:

(Left to right: US, German, Spanish, French)
I have the US cover on my shelf. I'm not a huge fan of red, so I'm not so sure about it, but I really love the font. It's intricate and just gorgeous. I prefer the color scheme of the German cover, though I can't say that I love it. The cover I like least is the French, though the blood running from the girl's lips is nicely creepy!
Favorite cover: Hm... don't really have one.
Next: The Agency- A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee. A wonderful Victorian murder mystery with a kickass heroine.

(left to right: US, UK, German, French)
I have the UK cover but I wish I had the German version. It's elegant and just beautiful. I also like the US cover, though it can't top the German. The French? I don't think it shows that the book is a historical mystery. Just looking at the cover it could be anything.
Favorite cover: German

I've showed you the UK, US, German and Hungarian cover of Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, but I discovered so many beautiful versions of this book that I simply had to feature it in another cover love post. Here it is:

(Left to right: Dutch, Italian, Lithuanian, Estonian)
I love all of the above. You simply can't walk past the Italian cover. It's eyecatching and shows that Thirteen Reasons Why might deal with some serious topics. The Dutch cover conveys a certain sense of sadness and forlornness. Beautiful! The Estonian and Lithuanian can't quite keep up with the other two, but I like them.
Favorite cover: Dutch

Now three slightly...extravagant versions of Thirteen Reasons Why:

(Polish, Korean, Czech)
Well...they're not my cup of tea. The Korean version looks like it might be about fashion and the Polish reminds me maybe MG action with a boy protagonist. Not sure.
And the Czech cover? Umm...what the heck happened there?
So tell me what are your favorites? Oh and I'm open for suggestions: Are there any books you'd like to see in the next cover love posts?

Yes! Those are beautiful covers!! Awesome choices! I love the Evernight variations.

I love this feature! Most of those covers are great but, um, Czech 13 Reason's Why? I feel like it's a poster for a Nickelodeon show. I wonder how many unsuspecting Czech 10-year-olds were horrified to find out it's about suicide.

Great covers! I love to see all the differences in them.

I still have to read the third book in the Evernight series. I bought it a year ago, but had planned to reread the second book first. Only I haven't had time since there's always a great new book coming out. Guess I'd better read it before book four comes out. :)
