(US hardcover, US paperback, UK paperback)
So much better than the first cover! I'm so glad they went with the UK cover. Although I still prefer the way the UK cover looks. I'm not fond of all that purple.
I loved the hardcover, so this is a bit sad. I think I would love the new cover if the couple on the front was gone or incorporated better.
The font is wicked (seriously, look at the "S" and the last "a"!). I love that it has color, but wish it wasn't purple.

Whoa. The original paperback cover is one of those book covers that would make me feel very awkward in public. I like that it doesn't have the same pale-as-death skin tone as the original cover. As for the new paperback cover (and the one that will be printed), I like it. The warm colors, the background...it looks great!
I prefer the old cover. It's sleek, attention-getting. The new one is a bit too chaotic for me.
This is actually really close to the original cover...I kind of like the bright blue. I think I like both equally. Does her hair look less red?
I like the change. The new cover makes me very curious about the story, while the first cover didn't capture my interest at all.
I'm not really fond of either cover, but I can't stand the original, so I'm glad they're changing it. The new cover captures the darker side of the story in a more obvious way. But the original captures the bursts of humor, too. Darn.
Definitely the original. It's simple, and it makes me curious. The new one makes me want to look away, the font is so distracting.

I used to hate the original Anna cover (and probably never would have read that book if I hadn't received an ARC), but the adorableness has grown on me. The new cover is less embarrassing to read in public, but it wouldn't catch my eye if I was wandering around in a bookstore.
Yet again, the original cover has grown on me, so I prefer it more. I like the new LOLA cover better than the new ANNA. I love the warm colors.
It's okay. I'm not a big fan of font that takes over the cover, unless it's integrated in a unique way. I hope that they at least do something fun with the font for all three books (emboss, engrave, foil, something)!
All in all, while I love some of the new covers, I'm starting to think that I'm not really a cover-change fan. Sometimes they are absolutely incredible, but other times...not so much.
What are your thoughts?
