Cover Comparisons [3]

For this weeks cover comparison we're comparing the multiple covers of Forgotten by Cat Patrick! I don't think I've ever known a book to have so many different covers. Its pretty insane. Almost as insane as the time it took me to track down which cover belonged to which country. :P Haha. But anyway without further ado, here are the covers!

                 French Cover                          UK Cover

              Australian Cover                       US Cover

French Cover: I love it! Very elegant and eyecatching. I especially like how the color palette is very simple. However, I don't think it necessarily has the right feel for this book. This cover makes Forgotten feel like a contemporary, when really I think it has more paranormal/fantasy elements to it. But still, a gorgeous cover.

UK Cover: Ehhh I'm not too fond of this one. It makes Forgotten look way too much like an angsty paranormal romance with the gothic color tones and broody clouds in the background. Not a favorite.

Australian Cover: This one is absolutely gorgeous in every way. I LOVE the colors (the most gorgeous shade of poppy red? I think so!) and the way that the photo is processed makes it feel like some sort of dream world/hazy memory which is perfect for this book. I also love the font they chose for the title. I just can't love this cover enough! I want to buy the Australian copy of Forgotten just to get this cover!

US Cover: I'm not really feeling this cover. There's just something about it that seems off to me. Sure the bold font is eye catching, but why does that feel so edgy whereas the girl in the background looks almost like she's from a bygone era? I don't know. If they had used a different background photo I think I would have liked this one better, because honestly the full font front (say that five times fast!) is a pretty cool idea.

So who wins? For me its the Australian cover hands down. Its absolutely gorgeous (POPPY RED!) and I think it captures this book perfectly. That being said I haven't actually read Forgotten yet (I know, bad me....) so I'm only going by what I know from the summary and some reviews.

So who do you think wins this cover comparison? Be sure to vote in the poll below and let me know!

Want to join in the cover comparison fun? Go right ahead! Just be sure to credit me and try to link up below. I will try to make this a weekly post (every Saturday) but I can't guarantee regularity.... >.< So if I haven't posted a cover comparison for the week and you have, then just make sure to credit me in your post for starting this meme! Thanks guys!

  1. I haven't read Forgotten yet but the UK cover is the one I'm continuously drawn too. Props to the cover artist on this one.

  2. This is such a coincidence, but the post I have scheduled for tomorrow also compares the covers of Forgotten! How crazy is that? Oh, and I agree with you - the Australian cover is just beautiful :)
