The Cover Championships of Champions (Part 2/2)

Greetings! Please ensure that, after you read this nugget of wonderfulness from Lara Liz, you scroll down to read yesterday's. It got posted only an hour or so ago due to a WiFi calamity.

Why thank you, random public-service announcer who may or may not be a figment of my imagination. You really do have a point there.

Anyway, I'm now home and have escaped from the horrible curses of unreliable internet, so we can get on with the Cover Championships of Champions. Woo-hoo! Here is a reminder of the four beautiful books that have reached the semi-final stage (if you want to find out what happened to the others I plucked randomly out of the air nominated, then just click here):

From left to right: Dorothy Must Die (Danielle Paige), Fangirl (Rainbow Rowell), The London Eye Mystery (Sioban Dowd).

Semi-Final #1 - Dorothy Must Die vs. Fangirl
Wow. Now that we've got to the semi-final, competition is really hotting up! These covers are both undeniably eye-catching, and I personally think they sum up their stories very well. Either would do well in the final, but only one can go through, so I'm going to indulge a preference of mine and admit that I prefer bright colours to dark ones - dystopian seems to be everywhere at the moment, and Fangirl goes through, as it brings a little whimsy to my day.

Semi Final #2 - The London Eye Mystery vs. I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You
Hmm. This one is also exceptionally close, and I find it a little scary. WHAT IF EVERYBODY HATES MY DECISION AND WANTS TO KILL ME?! I like life. . .

However, as tough as it is, I must come to a conclusion. Because the colours are brighter and I love London, I choose The London Eye Mystery. Also, once you read it, you will understand that everything on it is a clue to a part of the plot. I love covers like that.

Oooh. These two aren't just beautiful, they're similar. Both full of colours and clues and a little bit of whimsical cartoonery. We certainly know what I like, don't we?

I'm going to have to ask for a second opinion on this one. Mum says The London Eye Mystery, and do you know, I agree with her. So it's the Cover Champion of the Championships of Champions!

What do you guys think of my decisions? Have you read any of these books? And which is your personal cover champion?
