Cover vs Cover: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

This week's pick is...

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)  VS.  City of Bones - Cassandra Clare
Original                   Redesign
I admit it. The only reason why I like the redesign is because I hate covers with shirtless guys on them! Really, I almost didn't read City of Bones because of that cover.

Final Verdict: Redesign
Do you agree? Give me your thoughts on which cover is the best!


  1. Overall, I like the new cover better... Not big on how the title looks though

    1. I agree. The font is plain and the color is a very unflattering yellow, but anything is better than overly buffed shirtless dude.

  2. I HATE the yellow color used on the title for the new cover. If it weren't for that, I'd pick it all day, every day. And ohmygosh I agree. Shirtless guys on covers are so lame. I've skipped a lot of books because of that!

  3. New cover is way better. I was never really fond of the original cover as it really had nothing to do with the book. A shirtless guy and a city big deal. But this one has something to do with the book. Even has the tarot cards.

  4. I almost didn't read City of Bones because of the topless guy on the cover too! I copped so much teasing from my family members because of that silly cover. Still, not a massive fan of the redesign - mostly because of the colour of the title.
