Judge a Book by its Cover: Specials

Today we have Specials by Scott Westerfeld.

All pictures from Amazon

For some reason whenever I see the first one, I always think of Helena Bonham Carter even though it doesn't really look like her. The tagline on this one, "Frighteningly Beautiful, Dangerously Strong, Breathtakingly Fast" isn't quite as good as the first two, in my opinion. The second cover is actually kind of terrifying. The tagline, "Time for the final choice..." seems quite ominous as well. The third one has the same tagline as the second. I haven't seen any others like the third one in this series, so I'm not really sure why it's here. It isn't my favorite cover, but it isn't horrible either. The final cover has the same tagline as the first one. I like this one--the spine is pretty cool.

What are your thoughts? Do you have a favorite? Also, do you judge a book by its cover? Let me know in the comments!
