However, this time for some reason the Uglies series (or is it still a trilogy?) by Scott Westerfeld caught my eye and I picked up a few of the books. I bought the series when it first came out so all the ones I own have the original covers on them. I had noticed the cover change a while back but had never actually taken the time to fully look at them.
If you are not familiar, here are the originals:
And here are the changes:

I'm not sure why they were changed, but I do think the new covers illustrate what the overall story is better than the originals. That being said, I don't really like them. These new covers are quite pretty...yet slightly creepy (especailly that first one). I don't know what it is about them...I feel like these pictures belong in magazines or something rather than on book covers. I definitely prefer the original covers and kind of wish they hadn't been changed.
What are your thoughts on this cover change? How do you feel about cover changes in general?
