Let's play a game

Let's play a game. (Play a love game, do you want love? Or you want fame? Are you in that game?) Sorry, I got distracted. Anyways, I'm bored and I got curious. How do you guys feel about reprints? Do you like them better or the originals better?



For example, Flowers in the Attic. The one on the left is the one I read and will always be the one I think of when I think FITA. The one on the right looks like YA to me, which it's not and th people on the cover must be Cathy and Chris and I don't want to see that... you'll know what I mean if you've read it.

The other series on my mind is the Dark Visions books by L. J. Smith.

Original covers:


New cover (All three are in one):



I own the first one of these, original cover, and to be honest, I think I like it better. Maybe because I've read it probably a dozen times, maybe I'm weird. (Random bit of trivia, you know how books from back then had a thing at the back of the book "Look for the next exciting book", and it always had the title capitalized and then a paragraph describing the book? Mine has the wrong title there. It says the Possession, and there's no book called that in this series.)

Anyways, I think that's all I wanted to say. What do you guys think?
Peace and cookies,
Laina

(P. S. Read the Dark Visions series!! It's really good.)

  2. I will probably always like the book cover that was on the front cover of the edition of that book that I read. Sorry, was that confusing?
