Which One Won? Can chick lit book cover art be too sweet?

Chick lit is the new chick flick. Or maybe it’s better, because for those who crave the lighthearted humor of a romantic comedy, a book lasts longer. But should chick lit book cover art be as frothy as the subject itself? Bestselling author Kate O’Keeffe took her latest novel to PickFu to find out.

She asked a general audience of respondents the following question: “Which cover do you prefer for a fun, feel-good book about finding love?”

Option A shows a bright red cover with illustrations of two characters (sans their faces) and yellow font.
