Lookalikes 176

Very similar but a little different, I think the hand on The Secret Diaries just adds a nice touch and enough interest to an otherwise very plain set of covers.

Hardcover vs Paperback 163


In this chilling start to a trilogy rife with revenge, two teens learn the hard way: Sometimes sorry isn’t enough.
 It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems...
     Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better—the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.
     On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel...something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.
     In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay. Em and Chase have been chosen.

Ugh, the hardcover is so memorable it's a shame it was replaced. The paperback has good fierce model face but those "flowers" look like mushrooms to me and they are so awkwardly placed, like she is leaning into a flowerbed or I can't stop seeing it, a patch or mushrooms. Just a weird juxtaposition.

Lookalikes 175

Liar Society owns this one. I love this cover! I love all the saturation and the slants and the black and yellow, it is just RIGHT. You will notice sometimes when an image is flipped it looks great both ways and sometimes it just looks right one way and weird the other. For some reason on Karma Kitty the girl's face almost comes off as flat, weird right?

Hardcover vs Paperback 162



Miri lives on a mountain where, for generations, her ancestors have quarried stone and lived a simple life. Then word comes that the king's priests have divined her small village the home of the future princess. In a year's time, the prince himself will come and choose his bride from among the girls of the village. The king's ministers set up an academy on the mountain, and every teenage girl must attend and learn how to become a princess.

Miri soon finds herself confronted with a harsh academy mistress, bitter competition among the girls, and her own conflicting desires to be chosen and win the heart of her childhood best friend. But when bandits seek out the academy to kidnap the future princess, Miri must rally the girls together and use a power unique to the mountain dwellers to save herself and her classmates.

I really like the illustration on the hardcover but I don't know if it exactly captures the spirit of what I gather from the summary. I've seen like 101 covers like the paperback though. Regardless the book sounds really great, I should read it!

Thanks to Ashley who suggested this H vs P!

The Charley Bracelet: How to Measure Your Hand for Sizing

For the most accurate measurement take a fabric tape measure and wrap it around your hand. Make sure you wrap it so it goes around your thumb knuckle which is the widest part of your thumb. 


Bracelet should fit snugly over your hand so it fits perfectly on your wrist and doesn't fall off. Work it onto your hand slowly, it will be snug.


CUSTOMIZATION DETAILS:

Bracelets are made to approximately 8 inches and are created to slip snugly over your hand for a perfect fit on your wrist. There is no clasp on the standard bracelet so if you need a custom size or are concerned about the fit please leave the requested size in the Note to Seller box. 

If you are still concerned about the fit I can add a clasp to your bracelet just leave a message in the Note to Seller box. 

Bracelets are created with a standard gold metal chain but if you prefer a silver metal chain please leave a note in the Note to Seller box. 

If no customization notes are made you will receive an approximately 8 inch long bracelet with a gold metal chain and no clasp.

Hardcover vs Paperback 161


It's Dade's last summer at home, and things are pretty hopeless. He has a crappy job, a "boyfriend" who treats him like dirt, and his parents' marriage is falling apart. So when he meets and falls in love with the mysterious Alex Kincaid, Dade feels like he's finally experiencing true happiness. But when a tragedy shatters the final days of summer, he realizes he must face his future and learn how to move forward from his past.
 
I've always liked the hardcover and still do! The quote on the paperback is very nicely done though!

Dry as Rain wins it for me, I like the composition of the image here at lot better, sometimes bigger is better! I will say the title band is kind of bland though.

Hardcover vs Paperback 160



Birdie Cousins has thrown herself into the details of her daughter Chess's lavish wedding, from the floating dance floor in her Connecticut back yard to the color of the cocktail napkins. Like any mother of a bride-to-be, she is weathering the storms of excitement and chaos, tears and joy. But Birdie, a woman who prides herself on preparing for every possibility, could never have predicted the late-night phone call from Chess, abruptly announcing that she's cancelled her engagement.

It's only the first hint of what will be a summer of upheavals and revelations. Before the dust has even begun to settle, far worse news arrives, sending Chess into a tailspin of despair. Reluctantly taking a break from the first new romance she's embarked on since the recent end of her 30-year marriage, Birdie circles the wagons and enlists the help of her younger daughter Tate and her own sister India. Soon all four are headed for beautiful, rustic Tuckernuck Island, off the coast of Nantucket, where their family has summered for generations. No phones, no television, no grocery store - a place without distractions where they can escape their troubles.
But throw sisters, daughters, ex-lovers, and long-kept secrets onto a remote island, and what might sound like a peaceful getaway becomes much more. Before summer has ended, dramatic truths are uncovered, old loves are rekindled, and new loves make themselves known. It's a summertime story only Elin Hilderbrand can tell, filled with the heartache, laughter, and surprises that have made her page-turning, bestselling novels as much a part of summer as a long afternoon on a sunny beach.
 
 
I "get" both covers but definitely prefer the paperback, there is something too awkward about the pose on the hardcover and the toes gripping the rock, but then again I'm not really a feet person.
