Old Books, New Looks {4}

Time again for another round of Old Books, New Looks, where I feature the covers of books that have already been released and their redesigned paperback counterpart! :) Sometimes I like the new better, sometimes I like the old. Here's a few that I've come across lately:


Here's my thoughts on these:
~Dark Eyes: I actually love both of these! Love the intensity of the old one, you definitely know that its an action-packed thriller from this cover, but the new one is purple (gets points for my being my fave color ;D) and I love the sort of disorienting feeling you get from looking up at the skyscrapers.
~Mercy: OH so glad they changed this cover. I really disliked the original. Drab, drab, drab.  But the new one is fantastic with the luminescent gold and the birds and her upswept hair. Gorgeous!
~Misfit: New one is cool, but I have to admit I prefer the original.
~The Name of the Star: Undecided. I really love them both. Ok, maybe the new one just a teensy bit more. :)

So what do you think? Old or New?


  1. Mercy is probably the only new cover I like. Thanks for sharing!

  2. The new covers for Mercy and Misfit a gorgeous! For Dark Eyes I prefer the old one and for The Name of the Star I think that UK cover beats both of these :P

  3. The new Mercy cover is a lot better! The original cover was pretty boring!

  4. Not a big fan of any of these covers, maybe the new Mercy and Name of the Star.

  5. Dark Eyes = Old; its more edgy
    Mercy & Misfit = New; it's more edgy
    Name Star = Old; more haunting

    GREAT shares!
    Apparently I like edgy covers

  6. Strangely, I like all the old ones with the exception of Mercy, I LOVE the new on that book!

  7. I think I prefer all the new covers and I have nooo idea why. Usually cover changes annoy me, but I really like those. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I just finished "The Name of the Star" and I own the old hardcover version. While I loved the old cover's's one of those subtly pearly looking ones, I think that the images on the new cover actually fit the tone of the book better!

  9. I do not like the new cover for The Name of The Star!!! All the others are nice

  10. With the exception of Mercy I like the old ones better. What's up with Misfit? It looks like they stuck that poor girl's finger in a light socket!
