Friday Face Off: Falling Forward

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

This week's FFO is a throwback to my very first FFO, when A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies won against Baci Immortali by Laini Taylor. This week, A Beautiful Dark faces off yet again, this time against Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey. 

Like the last cover comparison, both covers show a girl with her arms outstretched, falling forward to an uncertain fate. Although I still prefer the cover for A Beautiful Dark, I like how the girl seems to be rising out of the water on the cover for Ashes on the Waves, almost as if she was part of the wave herself. 

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

On last week's FFO: The covers for Scarlet won against, Dark Triumph and Maid of Secrets. Dark Triumph came in second, and Maid of Secrets received no votes. Thanks to M.A.D., Natasha, and Heather for commenting!

As usual, you are still welcome to comment with your thoughts on old FFOs, and I will update this page accordingly.

I like both covers alot but I like Ashes On The Waves the best.

I agree. Ashes on the Wind has more atmosphere and emotion in it. Though the other girl has a beautiful, serene expression on her face.

(and I really wanted to add The Night Circus, but it was an adult one, so that is why I left it out. Sad day, I know).

I also pick Ashes on the Waves because it makes it look like the girl is flying - the other cover just makes her look like she is standing with her arms out. There is more 'movement' in the Ashes on the Waves cover.
