I’ve seen this book around and always thought the cover on the left was nice. Borne sounds pretty interesting.
Hi Breana, Borne’s definitely an intriguing character!
Sounds like a cool dystopian, Sassy. This is a new one for me, loving the premise 🙂 Here’s my Friday post if you’re interested Inspiration Pie
Thanks, Jo-Ann. I will definitely pop by! 🙂
I’ve been thinking about trying this! Happy reading!
Hi Lauren! Hope you do, and enjoy it, too!
I prefer the left cover. Sounds like a groovy read! Happy weekend! x

Ah!! Didn’t know that. Thanks for the tip. Hope you had a lovely weekend, too!
This book sounds like nothing I have ever seen before and it sounds really intriguing. I actually like both of the covers, but if I had to choose, I would pick the one on the right. I hope that you enjoy this one. 🙂
Thanks, and I did 🙂
I’m so intrigued by that Borne cover on the left. It looks like a strange version of a bird of paradise flower. Also that excerpt made me really scared of whomever this Borne person is.
Both covers are cleverly designed. And that’s the thing about Borne, he’s unpredictable.
