I like how the cover art on the new one (left) compliments the style and form of the first (right). The pictures are beautiful and I like how the portrait style - which played a role in the plot of the first book - and the inclusion of flowers ties them together despite the vastly different color schemes. There's also a play on words in the title of the sequel as the main character (the daughter of the first book's heroine) is named Joy - so the titular dreams are both those of a hopeful future and those of a girl of a new generation Dreams of Joy won't be released until May 31, but I'm glad to have a date to look forward to that will continue the story begun two years ago in Shanghai Girls!
A Weekend to ReCOVER is a meme hosted by Her Book Self that is all about discussing and analyzing interesting and unique cover art - new or old, classic or pre-release, anything that strikes your fancy! Whether it's a comparison or just a single work that stands out to you, feel free to chime in with a comment below or join in the fun with a post of your own. Be sure to leave a link so I can stop by and read about what cover(s) you're admiring or criticizing this week!
