Responses to Option A
1
I think book A looks more like a mystery that I'd be interested in reading. Book B doesn't look like a mystery.
2
looks more professional
3
There's something about B that reminds me too much of a book for adolescents, so I definitely prefer A since it seems more adult.
4
Neither seems to illustrate the title of "Girl on Fire" but I suppose this one is more intriguing
5
It is much different than other book covers that I have seen
6
A because it looks more complex, B looks too girly.
7
I think the first option is more intriguing and I like the colors, but I think both are interesting
8
I like that it is mysterious.
9
It looks more serious
10
I like the dystopian drawing better.
11
I feel like the butterflies-transformation is a bit tacky in B.
12
The butterfly shape "mask" really caught my eye.
13
It is a bit more eye catching and original
14
The cover on this book makes the story seem darker and more complex. The other cover looks like the book is for teens.
15
i love a it an awesome art a wonderful cover i would read this
16
It's very evocative and interesting, B is more generic and less grabbing.
17
Looks less cheesy.
18
I like the use of negative space. It doesn't look as cluttered.
19
This looks very unique and really makes me interested to find out what it is about.
20
A looks complex and interesting. B looks standard and shallow.
21
This one has a less "crappy Photoshop" looking cover.
22
With the cover art in the other cover, this book seems less a fantasy and more realistic.
23
I'm atteacted to the black and white contrast, and the image is mysterious.
24
I think A looks rather classy
25
I think I like the simpleness of Choice A better. Choice B looks like it could be a fantasy book, which I am not fond of whereas Choice A makes it look like it would be a very good fiction book.
26
It has more of a sci-fi feel or even looks as if ot could be based on a true story
27
I like the cover better. It makes it look like a stronger book.
28
The reason I selected preference A is because I find the cover to be sleek with illustration of math codes. Preference B was not chosen because it appeared too muddled.
29
The cover design is more interesting to me than option b.
30
I like the way this shows that the book is more of a thriller. The other cover looks more like a romance.
31
Art style is more refined and eye-catching.
32
The book cover for B looks like any other book, and I feel like A would stand out more to me if I see it at a bookstore.
33
Cover is more appealing
34
I don't mind B either. But A looks cooler.
35
This one looks more mysterious and interesting.
36
I think they are almost the same. B looks a little more romance-novel.
37
I like the math. So many women-targeted books stray from sciency/STEMy ideas--seeing that is cool.
38
B looks tacky.
39
The design is a lot more striking and impactful. With choice B there is too much going on in the picture and is less appealing
40
The cover looks more adult and intelligent with the minimal color palette. The cover with the red dress reminds me more of a fairy tale rather than a sci fi thriller.
41
The cover is more interesting, it looks less like a YA novel
42
B looks too much like a science fiction type of book-something I am not interested in.
43
this cover is really creepy and i just love the black and white nature of it.
44
Option B looks too much like those books that are inspired by a hit show. It looks very cheesy, shallow and low quality, like it's targeted towards teenagers. Option A looks more mature and has more depth.
Responses to Option B
1
Option A is really creepy and weird.
2
The illustration is more colorful and looks more interesting. I want to know more about the story.
3
I like the butterflies and the long hair.
4
A is too creepy.
5
I prefer B, because the colors on the cover catch my eye, and I think A is a little creepy.
6
The color contrasts really grab my attention and draw me in to learn more about the book.
7
Option B is more appealing. The design fits well with the title of the book. The other book looks plain, and dark.
8
The first one doesn't catch the eye.
9
The colors pop out more
10
B is less cluttered and less overwhelming to look at. I prefer simplicity when it comes to book covers.
11
I don't really like either of them to be honest.
12
I love B! It's beautiful, romantic, vibrant!
13
this one looks like it's going to tell an interesting story, and it's more colorful/eye-catching.
14
I am more partial to the cover in Choice B because the other one looks a smidgen scary. It reminds me something more of a horror book than what it probably really is.
15
Looks more exciting
16
Just the overall look of Option B is nicer. I like the red butterflies on the bottom that could possibly represent the fire. Option A seems less intriguing and confusing.
17
more interesting design, choice A is more plain and looks more like a horror genre
18
I'm a chemist so I like the molecular structures on the cover of Option B; it makes it look technical and interesting and right up my alley. I also think Option A looks creepy and unsettling, so I wouldn't ever pick it up from the shelf or give it another look.
19
Option A is a little simplistic compared to B. I like the red butterflies in B as well.
20
Option B... The picture, especially with the red butterflies better suits the Title and grabbed my attention more quickly. Option A was still a good choice, but not as good a fit all around.
21
This looks like it would be more fun and exciting and less artsy.
22
I love the image of the red butterflies. it catches the eye a lot and fits the book title.
23
The dripping eye thing going on in option A is a little creepy and unpleasant to me. Option B was less unappealing based on this.
24
It makes more sense to me and I get a better feeling of the book by the more detailed/colored cover. I highly like the font on cover A though as it's much easier to read and understand.
25
I don't like either cover that much (I feel like they're both too random) but if I have to pick, I'd go with the one that has the butterflies because it's prettier. The other cover is just very odd looking and kind of depressing which might turn people off.
26
its a better cover
27
The cover caught me instantly because of he colors and picture used. I Really love the green trees in the back and the red on top of it. It felt intense and something I want to read
28
The colors are brighter of b than a
29
I think option B portrays fire better in my personal opinion, so I'd choose what looks more like what the title says.
30
Option b looks more interesting.
31
I prefer the graphic of B and the use of the butterflies!
32
It looks like a more fun read
33
Much more color. Stands out. Eye catching immediately.
34
I love butterflies....
35
I like that the butterflies look like they are fire. It fits better with the book title.
36
picture is more creative
37
I love the red butterflies and the colors of B. The way the butterflies are arranged and colored makes them look like fire balls, which fits nicely with the title.
38
Choice B looks more appealing and likely to catch my eye in a bookstore.
39
Honestly, neither cover appeals to me, but B is more tolerable and less of an eyesore. While A would stand out, it feels like it's trying to hard to be edgy and attention-grabbing. A casual reader would see Cover B and be more likely to pick it up.
40
I honestly don't think either cover really matches the title however I chose Option B because the red butterflies matches the subtitle "Butterfly Code" and they are red which resembles fire.
41
I like both covers but the image of the butterfly skirt is more eye catching.
42
The red symbolizes fire better.
43
While I enjoy the minimalism of option A, option B fits with the title and makes it look like a more interesting read
44
B looks much more like a book cover; A is too minimalist and doesn't tell me much about the book without looking at it for a long time. The first also gives more imagery and I like the fonts on B much more than the boring fonts on A.
45
Option b seems like a far more interesting book. Also the cover better fits the title.
46
I like both covers but it is the bold colors on choice B that draws my eye more. I only slightly prefer it because both covers are visually interesting
47
Option A reminds me too much of existing covers. It also makes me feel like it's about women who aren't really telling their story. Like they are blind and missing facts.
48
I think the cover looks more modern and put together.
49
Option B because it looks more interesting
50
The cover looks more appealing. I like that there is more going on on the cover with option be than with option A
51
Choice A is very confusing
52
A looks kind of over-the-top/try-hard and sterile... I like the motion of B better.
53
I think the butterflies look cool
54
I don't really like either to be honest, but I feel like B is a bit more colorful and dynamic and a bit less creepy.
55
A looks creepy
56
Prefer the bright colors of the butterflies. Red seems to reference the title better.
