Cover Compare: Legend

Legend by Marie Lu is one of those books that has been on my wishlist for ages, but I still don't have a copy. Christmas hint much? ;)

Most of these are very similar, which the symbol dominating the cover space. I like these, because they are eye-catching and different and not super YA-ish, if that makes sense. I'm really not a fan of the Indonesian cover. I like imagining my own faces etc. on the characters. I'm also not crazy about the Collector's Edition. It's a bit cartoon-y. The two different English versions are my favourites. What do you think? Let me know which is your favourite in the comments.

English edition - Putnam Juvenile
English - Speak

English - Collector's Edition



  1. I think I actually like the more simple covers than the ones with people in them. Kind of weird I know but I like how clean the covers look for this series.
    I hope you get this book for Christmas!

  2. I like the Portugese and English collector's edition best. But of course I just have the silver one. You need to read it, it is so good! I hope you get it for Christmas.

  3. I think I like the first and last one. Studies have shown that images with people in them connect with people, although I know a lot of readers don't like to go into a book with preconceived notions as to how a character looks. So, in that case, the last one! You can see just enough to make it interesting.
