US VS UK, Round Eight...

There are always two version's to a cover, but in this post we are putting the US and the UK head to head to see who comes with the best cover. Our contestants are...

This is going to be a Hunger Games US VS UK!

And Now We Shall Begin...

Round 1

US-UK

US-UK

Although the UK covers do look original and cool, I prefer the US ones. Maybe its because I am used to those ones, or maybe it's because they just look so clean and simple which gives more power to the story. They just go with the story. Although I gotta say I like the spots of blood on the Uk covers, because let's face it there is a lot of death in the story. For me it's a US win all the way.

What's it for you? US or UK?

Oh and don't forget to come by in 3 days! Anna Godbersen it's going to be here and you so don't wanna miss that!

  2. Def. US. I like the UK version of Catching Fire more than the UK of The Hunger Games, but the US covers are the ones I prefer! :)

  3. Yea I agree! I think the US covers are better. There's too many lines and graphics in the UK

  4. the US covers have more of a "series" look to them and people can probably tell right away from afar that the two are related
    the UK covers have such drastic changes in style, it seems less recognizable as a series
    I do like the blood spots, but maybe dystopia covers are more sombre without them?

  5. I think I definitely like the US covers better! I don't know exactly why, they even match better! I love The Luxe series, so I can't wait :)

  6. I love this feature!

    For me I think the U.S. covers are much better than the UK covers for The Hunger Games. I like the iconic Mockingjay pin design. On the UK cover I do not like the HG design or the image of Katniss.

  7. I prefer th US. The Uk covers just look a little weird to me, but maybe im just used to the US covers.

  8. This isn't strictly true for the UK covers - those ones you list are very new, almost every copy I've seen up to the last couple of months had the same cover as the US.

    I prefer the original covers - I think they stand out more from other books, and it's nice to have something other than people on it. There are too many covers these days with mysterious people on them.

  14. ll 4 covers are cool, but there's something about the UK covers, that are just..kinda disturbing..but in a good way so deffo the UK! :)

  15. I like the look of the US covers. They flow together much better than the UK ones. While the UK ones are nice, they do not match, which makes it harder to relate the two books as a series on first glance.

  16. US. Both. And can't wait for book 3.

  17. Def US for the win =) The UK's graphics look fake especially in the first book

  18. Hehe, sorry for betraying my country but I prefer both US covers. Maybe it's because I'm more used to seeing those ones around the blogosphere.

  19. US on both. Not a fan of the UK ones. Too icky or something.

  20. I picked US for Hunger Games and neither for Catching Fire xD. I do not like the colouring for Catching Fire and prefer the purple in the UK cover but I don't really like that one either, there is too much different things going on in that cover.
