1
I like having the image as a background, it feels more authentic.
2
It looks more professsional/informational, like it's going to teach me something using interesting metaphors instead of telling me a story.
3
It's a clearer image of rain.
4
I like A better than B, but barely so. The subtitle gives me pause and I think both the covers don't adequately convey what the book is about, but if I have to choose, I find A more aesthetically pleasing.
5
The bokeh and rain drops make the art really appealing.
6
I like the actual picture of rain in choice A, the second choice is a little confusing.
7
Don't see or feel rain in the other one.
8
I like this one better
9
I like the graphic of the window
10
MORE NATURAL LOOKING RAINDROPS
11
I like the picture of rain on the window to go with the title
12
A. Prefer the colors and overall design. Font.
13
looks better
14
A looks better and seems more related to the book.
15
I think it has a realer look
16
I think cover A looks better. I don't like the font in cover B.
17
The addition of the vehicles gives the connection to people which has stronger ties to connection in the title.
18
The colors are much more appealing to me. The other one is too bland and boring.
19
I like the real rain.
20
I like the look of the realistic rain
21
I always find the reality of a photographic background image to be more appealing. 100% lean towards option A.
22
I'm not a fan of bright cover art.
23
the image actually relates to the title of the book with the rain drops on the window
24
I think the real looking rain looks much better.
25
I like my choice because it has a direct connection to the title. It also gives a more modern and artistic feel to the cover
26
There is a clearer picture on this book that pertains to the title.
27
Option A seems less sugar-coated. It seems like the subject material might not be happy-go-lucky, which doesn't fit option B.
28
I like the image and the font much more than cover B. Cover B looks like it is covered in pills and I'm not sure that is the connection I need.
29
The background picture is more like the title and looks more mysterious.
30
The rain picture goes with the title.
31
like the realistic one better
32
the imagery has a lot more to do with the title than the other book
33
More intriguing.
34
It looks more professional.
35
Just looks better and fits the title
36
The cover shows rain -- I am not sure about the dots on the cover of option B
37
A is better but it could be better.
38
I don't care for the font used in Option B. I don't think Option B is a bad concept though. The cover is compelling in Option A, but it might not convey the message you want. It strikes me as a thriller or modern literary fiction.
39

1
a looks like it should be a true crime novel.
2
It looks less generic than the other one
3
the cover seems more modern
4
These both are decent but I prefer the understated and more elegant looking blue-ish one.
5
I prefer the font and coloring in B. I also like the "join the dots" insinuation.
6
B seems modern and interesting
7
Option B looks happier and upbeat.
8
A is too '90s design. B feels modern!
9
I prefer B because it is a unique interpretation and visualization of rain. Additionally, this depiction of rain seems more consistent with the title and content of the book. Therefore, B is a better choice as it is more likely to appeal to and engage more potential readers.
10
Better background
11
The white background makes it easier to read the title
