Friday Face-Off: Writing on the Wall

Friday Face-Off is a weekly feature hosted by Misty at The Book Rat

This week's FFO compares two covers with a similar concept but very different execution: Someone Else's Life, by Katie Dale, and Unraveling Isobel, by Eileen Cook. I personally prefer the cover for Unraveling Isobel, since I love how the paint loops around the model's arms. I like the composition of Someone Else's Life, but the eye-catching contrast between the model's read dress and the light blue walls is matched by the purple of Unraveling Isobel.

But now it's your turn to choose...
Which cover did it better?

Leave your thoughts in the comments!

On last week's FFO: Well, actually, there weren't any comments at all on last week's FFO, which compared the covers of The Vespertine and The UK version of The Goddess Test. Since the week before only got one comment, this doesn't seem to be a very popular feature, and as it is kind of dependent on reader input, so I think this will be my last FFO for a little while unless I get some comments on this week's or last week's FFO post (by the way, I still welcome any comments on older FFO posts, and will edit the newer ones if results change). I really like this feature, so please comment if you want it to continue! If not, you may see it return later in the year, but this is it for now.

I like the way Unraveling Isobel did it better. I like that the model is drawing it herself and like you said I really like how the paint loops around her.
