Cover Compare: Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini

Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini was actually a DNF for me, but that doesn't mean we can't talk covers!                                                                                                              

Quite a few to pick from here! The Italian and US covers are really similar, but I would give the edge to the Italian because it is more of a close-up. I think that the German on is my favourite though, even though it is so different and doesn't really look like YA. The UK cover is my least favourite. It's pretty, but it looks like so many NA covers out there. Which cover is your favourite?


  1. Oh gosh they are all nice but I think I like the German cover as well. The colors are so vibrant and pretty together.

  2. I'm actually the opposite, I think the UK version is my favourite. I just love the simplicity of that one, and the colour is striking. The German one is a close second mind you. Maybe I've seen the US edition one too many times that I've become jaded. LOL

  3. Tough! I kind of like the UK one just for the colours, but I think I'd have to go with the US cover ...

  4. For me, it's the German cover by far. Then the UK ones. I really don't like the US & Italian covers. I guess it's because that kind of landscape is clearly photoshopped, and I'm not into that.

  5. Definitely the German for me. I dunno... the US and Italian covers look a little too 3D-model-y for me, so I'd have to go with the UK one next (although I agree with the NA-feel to it. IMO it would be better if they just cut the dude out of it).

    And honestly, good call on not finishing it! Haha. I didn't think it was *that* bad, but on the other hand, it also didn't offer anything new to the market.
