Living in Germany gives me the perfect opportunity to compare original covers with the ones German publishers choose. Sometimes they're gorgeous, sometimes they make me cringe, but it's always interesting to see different covers for the same novel.
Cover Comparisons is a weekly feature here at Fictional Distraction.
Last week's winner is the German cover of Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

The first thing I thought about when I decided to do this week's Cover Comparisons for this book: wow, I really need to start this series soon.
I have to admit that I didn't really like the US covers for this series, when I first saw them. But the more I look at them, the more I start to appreciate them - especially their focus on highlighting the title with this beautiful font and color.
I like the German cover a little bit better though. It doesn't necessarily tell me more about the story, but I think that it would appeal to me a lot more if I saw both covers next to each other in a store.
