Hardcover vs. Paperback 8

Vegan, Virgin, Valentine by Carolyn Mackler

Hardcover

Paperback 1

Paperback 2


Mara Valentine is in control. She's a straight-A student, a strict vegan and she's heading to Yale in the fall. So when her slutty, weed-smoking, sixteen-year-old niece - yes, niece - V comes to live with the family, Mara is horrified. Even more so when she starts dreaming about grilled cheese sandwiches every night and realizes she is falling for James, her boss. Unable to ignore these unfamiliar cravings, Mara starts to give into them a little and in doing so discovers her sexuality, redefines her relationship with her over-anxious parents and realizes that V could in fact be a potential friend and ally.

I like all three covers, maybe Paperback 2 a bit more than Paperback 1, I like how it's understated in that case. And maybe Paperback 2 a slight bit more than the Hardcover, though I do like the title treatment on the Hardcover. 

Hardcover or Paperback?

  1. I think it's a bizarre title - I prefer the paperback cover.

  3. I have the second paperback which is also my favorite cover of the three. I don't think I would've bought it if it had the first cover.

  4. I like paperback #1 the best. It's the one that would most catch my eye at a bookstore.

  5. You said what I was going to say! I like them all. Paperback 2 more than paperback 1 though. I don't like the stars on paperback 1. :)

  8. I like Paperback 1 best. Of course, I am a big fan of hot pink so that probably swayed my vote.

  9. I like the first paperback because it's so vibrant - if I'm going to by a pink book with "virgin" in the title, I want to go all the way (pun fully intended).
