Cover vs. Cover: The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

This week's pick is...

The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1)VS.  The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1)
Hardcover                             Paperback
This shouldn't even be a contest. Paperback wins by a landslide. The Hardcover version is just so...ugly. We have a girl sleeping,a ghost dude (who I at first thought was Abraham Lincoln) who looks like he's watching her sleep, and is she sleeping on the ground?  I don't know what the cover designers were thinking when they put that mess together. Yeah, I can see how it relates to the book, kind of, but it is a mess! The Paperback version is so much better. It has a cool font and the blue color scheme is beautiful. There is the downside that you might not be able to tell that it's about ghosts, but it is still much better than the Hardcover.
Final Verdict: Paperback

Do you agree? Give me your thoughts on which cover is the best!
