Cover Talk: The Raven Boys on the Cover of The Raven Boys

You all know how much I hate it when covers change mid-series...but I suppose that this is a change that I could be okay. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater is getting an update for the paperback edition, but the new cover is staying within the design scheme. So, it went from this....




...to this:

So, not really a HUGE change. I like that the boys are on the cover, and that goes with the fact that Ronan is on the cover of The Dream Thieves (my review to come soon!). What do you think?

I like the simplicity of the original cover, the change makes it look like a videogame cover

I'm not a huge fan of the paperback cover, but I am glad that they kept the raven at least.

I agree with Alex: I liked the old cover because it was so crisp and clean. It looks cluttered now in comparison, though I probably wouldn't think that if it had been the original cover.

I'm glad I have the hardback! I love the cover. But I can understand the change.

I like how similar it is but agree that it looks kind of cluttered now.
