I agree with you - the title on the top one is great, but the fact that you see more of the model on the second one is good too.
I like the cover where you see more of the model. And I agree, the title on first cover is better.
Don't like the shoes, but the pose is great.
LOL Lenore... I agree..ok I like the second and here is why... I like darker wood. Its true... I like the deeper colors of the second one. I like Bermudaonions response too as you do see a bit more of the model - the first one she is too close.Great find!
I like the first one, by far.
First one.. :)
I like the first one also but I still amazes me that publishers reuse covers with such frequency.
Ohh, this is a difficult one. I think I'm gonna have to go with the first one. I like the closer-up of the photo, and the colors are brighter!
I like the second one. Does this happen often, using the exact same cover on different books?
Ya, I think I actually pretty much agree with you. I like the words on the first cover but the second I like that picture.
I think I like the first one. There's something about the close-up of the old books that makes me happy.And I don't like the shoes, either.
I read the first book a while ago, and I'm scratching my head the tiniest bit about that image fitting the content of the book. Then again, it's been a couple of years. Here's the old cover. Interesting that they both use stacks of books! But the old one seems to fit the book better--although the new one is definitely more modern feeling and less airy-spiritual.
Strange, my link doesn't seem to work. Here's a hard copy:http://www.laurenwinner.net/images/cover_gmg.jpg
I think I like the new Girl Meets God cover better than the one Katie linked, but between it and the Academy X cover, it's kind of a toss-up for me. I like elements of both.
I am about as much of a shoe person as I am a book person, so I love them both. But I'd have to say number 1 is better because I can see the shoe more clearly.
Uh-oh, this pair was on my list of covers to post! You beat me to it! I agree with you, I like both for different reasons. And like Lenore, I don't like the shoes!
I vote for the first. Cool title, too!
I like both but if I had to compare I would say the first one.
I like both and for the same reasons you do.Lenore's comment made me laugh.
I like the first one. Plus those shoes are super cute :)
It is bad to step on books :(
I like the top one. I have that same book and it doesn't have that cover. I am sometimes disheartened by how these covers are reused all of the time. They changed nothing about the picture except the wood is darker in the second book's background.
