Hardcover vs Paperback 86

The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper

Hardcover

Paperback

Amazon.com:

Kate Sanderson has been burned by love. From now on, she thinks, I will control my own destiny, and I will be reasoned and rational. But life has other things in store for Kate. Namely, a summer abroad studying Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in the very town where the star-crossed lovers met, Verona, Italy. Kate is thrown together with two other American teens and three Italians for a special seminar—and for volunteer duty at the Juliet Club, where they answer letters from the lovelorn around the world. Can Kate's cool logic withstand the most romantic summer ever? Especially when faced with the ever-so-charming Giacomo and his entrancing eyes . . . ?

Man this is HARD! The hardcover definitely reflects the theme of the book a lot better but I'm a sucker for faces on covers, they usually always get my attention more than an object. I just wish the paperback said Juliet more! I also prefer the type treatment on the paperback more than the hardcover.

Hardcover or Paperback?

  1. I am definitely going for the paperback. I love the green eyes and the freckles and the sneaky-ish expression on her face. I love the little glimpse of light and the romance suggested :)

  2. I am the opposite - I dislike faces on covers, and I find the hardback of this one so appealing. I think it really captures the book better.

  4. This one isn't hard at all for me. Paperback all the way. The HB is just so forgettable and the title box blends too much in with the picture. The PB is far more eye catching.

  5. I'm not crazy about either one - I can't quite figure the hardback out and the paperback one looks too generic.

  8. The hardcover is more unique in my opinion. And it might be just me, but does that girl on the paperback look a little like Cameron Diaz in There's Something About Mary?

  9. I think the hardcover one is nice, but the way it was edited makes it hard on the eyes. I'd say the paperback is much better.

  14. The hardcover and paperback seem to be telling very different stories! I would probably give the edge to the paperback, though, because it includes a human face, making it more engaging.

  17. I'm not really sure what that is on the hardcover but I like the background photo but they should have used the paperback font for the title.
