Cover Talk: Wake, Fade, Gone

I've been a big fan of Lisa McMann's first series, the Dream Catchers trilogy, ever since it came out. The writing is intense and thrilling, and I love that it's set in my home state of Michigan. I know that the books have been popular for guys and girls alike, probably because the original covers were simple and gender-neutral. Check out the originals:



I was a little bummed to see that the books have recently undergone a cover lift. Here are the new covers:


 I like them, but...

The black and white image, with the colored title, is really cool. I like that Janie and Cabel don't look like stereotypical models that end up on YA covers, but I just am not crazy about the covers. They look a little generic in my opinion. However, if they appeal to new readers and the series gains some more fans, I'm not complaining!

What do you think?

Plus, read my reviews of Wake, Fade, and Gone!

I prefer the old covers. The new ones might turn away guy readers.

I didn't know they were re-doing them. Why? I'm glad I have the old covers. The new ones just really don't do the books justice.
