Hardcover vs Paperback 121

The Fetch by Laura Whitcomb



Calder is a Fetch, a death escort, the first of his kind to step from Heaven back to Earth.The first to fall in love with a mortal girl. But when he climbs backwards out of that Death Scene, into the chaos of the Russian Revolution, he tears a wound in the ghost realm, where the spirits begin a revolution of their own.
The art on these covers, more so the paperback remind me of frescos which I think is a bit odd for this type of book but at the same time very fitting. To be honest there is something a little bit off putting about them for me.
Have you spotted a Hardcover vs. Paperback you would like to contribute? Send me an email!


  1. I prefer the hardcover, since it's slightly less typical, but it looks like a children's cover rather than a YA cover.

  2. I like the hardcover better. The look on the girl's face on the paperback seems wrong to me.

  3. While both covers are nice, I definitely prefer the hardcover. The people on the paperback look a little odd generally, plus I really like the more hidden intrigue in the hardcover version with its misty treatment and the prominence of the key.

  4. Agreed. Not really a fan of either cover. They are just kind of odd.

  5. I prefer the hardcover! Love that key!

  6. I swear, you have the most interesting posts. I don't always comment, but I always love reading them in my Google Reader. :)
