Hardcover vs Paperback 84

Donut Days by Lara Zielin

Hardcover

Paperback

Amazon.com:

Emma has a lot going on. Her best friend’s not speaking to her, a boy she’s known all her life is suddenly smokin’ hot and in love with her, and oh yes, her evangelical minister parents may lose their church, especially if her mother keeps giving sermons saying Adam was a hermaphrodite.

But this weekend Emma’s only focused on Crispy Dream, a hot new donut franchise opening in town, where Harley bikers and Frodo wannabes camp out waiting to be the first ones served. Writing the best feature story on the camp for the local paper might just win Emma a scholarship to attend a non- Christian college. But soon enough Emma finds the donut camp isn’t quite the perfect escape from all her troubles at Living Word Redeemer.

In a fresh, funny voice, newcomer Lara Zielin offers up a mesmerizing, fast-paced narrative full of wit and insight.

I always thought the hardcover was cute and clever but this paperback, it takes it to a whole new level! Fun background, fun font, donuts you could eat instead of get rained on by! You can still tell they are the same book but they definitely made the paperback cover a lot more delicious! Yum!

  9. I like that they kept the model the same, along with the same pose and everything. But honestly neither cover does much for me.

  10. I'm going to be the odd man out and say I like the hard cover better!

    It's just looks more unique, and draws my eye to it, while the paperback sort of looks a bazillion other cute ya books out there.

  12. I adored this book (and now I'm craving donuts!!). I love how they just did some fancy Photoshop magic with the cover, using the same girl but some different elements. :)

    Each cover makes me hungry, so maybe they're doing a different kind of marketing for me. A trip to Dunkin', anyone?

  13. Both are super cute, but the hardcover wins for me. How can you go wrong with powdered donuts in the sky?
