US VS UK, Round Fourteen...

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...

Round 1
Misguided Angel by Melissa De La Cruz


What happened to the UK cover!? I gotta say, I don't like it. It's just, it holds no competition again't the US one. I mean, LOOK AT THE US ONE! So gorgeous! The girl in the UK one is pretty, but I like how we can't really see much of the face of the US girl. Not to mention that the US cover holds more allure.

Round 2
Guardian of the Gate by Michelle Zink

The same, yet not the same. Same girl, same pose, but different editing. Personally, I like the US one better because it seems more clean in a sense. Usually I am all for having a pretty border, but, on this cover it just doesn't do it for me. And on the UK cover it just looks like it needs a boost of color. I also like how in the US one they kind of cut the girl's face.

This week it was a LAND SLIDE!!!!!!!! US won them all, now, am I right? Or am I terribly wrong?


  1. On the second round, more is less so the US looks way better than the UK, I don't like the brushes, or the font.

  2. No I agree with you US definitely takes both battles. In the first cover I like the feel of mystery with her eyes cast downward and I think it fits the title more. In the second round the UK cover has the girl looking too washed out for my liking and in general is just too busy of a cover for me! So in my opinion you were right on the landslide for the US victory!

  3. I agree, i like the cuts of the US ones a lot more. i do wish they'd stop having girls on covers who are way to gorgeous for their own good, where's the relatability?

  4. I kind of like UK For number one and US For number two.Of course the all nice.


  5. You're right, something is wrong with the UK one.US much better.Which is kinda weird, because 90% of the time UK covers are better than the US ones, no offense :)

  6. I 110% agree! I'm usually pining away over the pretty covers the UK always seems to get, but I think these two win it for the US! Is it just me, or does the girl on the cover of Misguided Angels just seem to old? Isn't that supposed to be Schuyler? Then again, maybe it's meant to throw readers off! Great post! :)

  7. I totally agree with you. Both os US covers are the best in these cases. The first one impresses you more because it's more alluring. And the second one the UK cover is kinda 'dead'. There isn't so much color and either the title or the girl is impressing more. And I didn't like the border, either.

    I really liked your post today! ^^

  8. I concur. US won for covers this week. =)

  9. I agree on the Misguided Angel: US is nice.

    But I kinda like the UK version of Guardian of the Gate. It looks a slight bit more YA with the swirly do things and the not so in your face font. The quote on the fore head though is odd placement. :(

    Great picks!

  10. I prefer the US covers as well. Although I do also like the UK cover for Misguided Angel.

  11. For the first set I prefer the US cover, it looks like more effort was put into it design wise its more beautiful and sad. For the UK cover it looks like they were settling for pretty :/. I would love to see the Polish version though since the Polish covers for Blue Bloods and Masquerade were gorgeous.

    The second set I unfortunately hate them both. I know the design for the US goes with the design for the paper back of Prophecy of the Sisters but I hate it >.> I preferred the HB version of PotS and wished that they had continued along that design line.

  12. like the US one on both counts but especially on the Melissa De La Cruz novel.

  13. US one for both. I like the US one for the Guardian because the UK one looks harsh - the lighting seems all wrong.

  14. Wow all of them are great! I love the UK cover for round one and US cover for round two : )

  15. I think your right on both accounts. The first one, US was way better. You were right on point.

  16. I like the US covers for both books. The girl on the cover of Misguided Angels looks a bit like Keira Knightly to me.

  17. I'm usually a big fan of the UK version of covers but I have to say for these two I much prefer the US covers. The Misguided Angel UK cover just doesn't appeal to me.

  18. Definitley the US cover are better. They look gorgeous especially Misguided Angel
