Covers: Old or New?

Recently, there have been a few books that have gotten new covers. I was just wondering if the old or new is prefered.

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer:

Old

New

Old

New

I, personally like the old covers for both of them better. I think, overall they are prettier. The new ones are pretty enough, but if I just saw them on the shelf I probably wouldn't pick them up at first. Plus, I have the original cover of Nightshade, so now when I get Wolfsbane the covers won't match, becase I believe that the old cover will not be available.

Die for Me by Amy Plum
Old
New
Though this is a close call, I think I prefer the older one again. I love the new one, too, it's probably prettier, but the older one has a darker, more mysterious feel to it that I like. I do love the new one, though.

This is old news, but:
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Old (hardcover)
New (paperback)
This is close, too. Both covers are absolutely gorgeous. I think I like the paperback slightly more. Though, I love the old one, too.

Which ones do you prefer?

  1. I do love the old covers, but I'm impartial on the matter. All I care about is what's inside the book, and what happens with Calla. (Hopefully that includes some major Ren snogging.)

    Both sets of covers are great in their own right. I do somewhat prefer the old ones. But it doesn't make a difference to my opinion of the book. Although I am having the darndest time trying to figure out what Calla is doing on the new Wolfsbane cover......

  2. Nightshade: Old; Die for Me: New; Unearthly: Old.

  3. Is if just me or does the new cover of Wolfsbane look like a really bad porno/erotica book? I think that it's just way too much.
    But for the other covers, it's hard to decide; they're both nice.
