I've noticed that sometimes there are more than one bookcover to one book...be it hardcover, paperback, a movie tie-in, or simply an edition form another country. So I decided to do a weekly (maybe lol) post highlighting one book I have or have not read that has more than one cover. At the end I'll choose my favorite!
For my very first This Cover or That, I have chosen..........Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan! Why? Well, you know, just because I love Greek mythology ;)
Original US Cover vs. Movie Tie-In Cover
First of all, I really like how both of the coves are very similar: the ocean and waves, NY up ahead, Percy holding something, and, of course, the lightning! But I have to say, my favorite of theses two has to be the movie tie-in cover. I mean, look at the lightning! It's wicked cool! Plus, I think I might be a little biased. I did see the movie before I read the book and I happen to own the book with the movie tie-in cover, too :P
Sooo, which one is your favorite??
Check out my review on The Lightning Thief!
