The Different Covers

As a bit of a fun post, I thought we could look at the different covers there are for some of the books covered for Sex in Teen Lit Month. Obviously, I will only cover the ones that have more than one cover. As I may not be entirely sure what cover is for where, so we'll just say first, second, third, etc.

A Bad Boy Can be Good for a Girl by Tanya Lee Stone:

I prefer the first cover myself. What about you?

Screwed by Joanna Kenrick:

Not much difference here, but I prefer the second one.

Sugar Rush by Julie Burchill:

I'm not sure which one I prefer, here.

Good Girls by Laura Ruby:

I much prefer the first cover!

Megan by Mary Hooper:

There is another cover, the original one, but I can't find it anywhere. I prefer the new, second cover.

Doing it by Melvin Burgess:

I'm not sure which one I prefer, I think they're all quite effective.

How about you, what do you think of the covers?


  1. I love the Melvin Burgess covers but how sedate and typically chick-lit are the Sugar Rush ones! I haven't read the book yet, but having seen the series I'd have expected something a bit more interesting.

  2. I haven't really watched the TV series, so I can't comment on that too much, really, but from reading the book, I'm not too sure how they could have one image for the book. I'm not sure what would work. But that's probably why I'm not a cover artist :P

  3. I did originally type this out but my internet mucked up.

    I prefer the first cover of "A Bad Boy can be Good for a Girl". I don't like the second cover at all.

    I don't know why but I much prefer the first cover of "Screwed".

    I'd be more inclined to pick up the first cover of Sugar Rush.

    I love the second cover of Good Girls.

    I prefer the second cover of Megan as well.

    I like all of the covers of "Doing It" except for the first one.

  4. Thanks for posting you opinions, Kate! :)
