This or That (8)

Hey Chroniclers! It's been weeks since I've last posted on this site and it's been months since I last posted this particular feature which is one of my creations. But, since it's Friday and I'm trying to get back into posting regularly because, well, I should and need to, I decided to start with today. Now for those of you who don't know, This or That is a weekly feature hosted by yours truly where I pit covers of the same book against each other. They both have the same story, but the image that sells is completely different.Your job, as Chroniclers, is to vote for your favorite at the end to see which one is the fan favorite.

This week I decided to do one that didn't have that much of a cover change, but they decided to make it different bother the hell out of fans who hate cover changes in the middle of a series.

Legend by Marie Lu!

What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Rupublic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secret.

Now here's the thing. I don't mind seeing the first one. I actually owned that copy and liked it for being simple although looking at it now reminds me of a photoshop a college student had to do. But then I discovered that the second cover had also been released on Hardcover and I had to have it! The texture and feeling of the actual book is amazing and it's better to look at than the first. The winner for me has got to be the new cover but people may like the old! Who knows? 

So that's where you come in! Out of these two which do you prefer? Vote for your favorite one down below and let's see who the winner is!
