This Weeks Featured Cover is:
The Hollow by Jessica Verday
Hardback English version
I hate to admit it, but the original is not my favorite! It feels to over the top. Too much make up, and the shiney effect makes it feel a little mermaid - esk to me. * This could be because I recently read a mermaid book..
"Warre Liebe ist unsterblich"
Translation: True love is immortal.
Now this one I LOVED. Slightly Haunting, highly romantic. Understated beauty. If it wasn't in German.. it would be mine. Doesn't totally fit the book. love it anyway.
English Paperback Editions
While they do have a simplistic beauty to them.. it's almost.. too simplistic, at least for me. The left reminds me of something we could see on a Mass Market Paperback Romance. I needed just a little bit more.The right however fits quite well. The colors are haunting and a great match, plus it leaves you to picture the main character on your own, rather than having an image pushed on you.
