Like or hate?
and I could have sworn I'd seen these before....but apparently they're new, according to Scott.

whoa... well, I like the old ones better... but those are cool too. I like the Extras one :3
and there was another copy that looked similar to those. that's probably why you've "seen" them before :)

I saw them before too on Simon & Schusters website.   I hate the new Uglies cover, because it doesn't really show the " sci fi ness" of Uglies.  Pretties is okay, but I didn't like the original anyway, still I would prefer something else. I actually like the new Specials and Extras though.  They are SO much better than the original.

Do uglies even wear nail polish?  :)

Ah! That must be it.

I like the Extras one a lot.

Who do you suppose the guy on the specials cover is? Er...red hair?

I like them. Very.. sci-fi scientific. It's all sterile, which is kinda creepy.

I'm not a fan... I like the other ones better... But I'm just stubborn I suppose and like things a specific way (lol for example the cast of hunger games lol)

Yeah, I've got the boxed set.

Do you suppose these new covers will be in hardback?
