Cover Critique - If I stay

This book has been on my TBR shelf for a while now. 
I got an email from my current bookstore few days back that 
the paperback version was finally in stock ! 
I immediately started reading this book,
(although I had loads to do, preparing for my vacation)

I'm only on page 41/259 but I am SO hooked
I didn't expect myself to even like this book. 
I thought it was going to be another one of those chick-lit, which it is, 
but in so much more depth and emotion.
You can expect my review in a day or two. 

and this is the paperback version.

It is not what I expected at all !
Although I'm not that much into a portrait of a beautiful girl's face on a book cover,
I am loving this one ! I think it's quite beautiful. 
And more related to the theme of the story.
What do you guys think? ^_^

The second cover would definitely be a better selling point than the first one. It made me laugh when you said you had it on your TBR shelf for so long that the paperback version was coming out--that happens to me quite often! LOL

oh, in terms of marketing, first one is the right choice,
I agree with you on that.
And I do that sometimes, wait for paperback cuz the cover design of hardcover version is just not my style lol
glad to have found someone who does that too! ^0^
btw I like your blog !

I wouldn't have looked twice at the first one but the second one makes me want to pick it up and read immediately! Adding to my Goodreads shelf for sure.

I know, the first one looks.. a bit off.
maybe in a different background colour then blue? lol

And give this book a try.
It's really good. really good.
