US vs UK (#17)


Welcome to Book Passion for Life's 17th US vs UK book cover battle. We've seen this posted on a few other blogs, and thought we'd jump on the band wagon!

The idea of this battle is once a week we'll post 2 sets of books of our choice, one US cover and one UK cover, and we'll just give our opinion on which one we love the most. Which cover captures the story, which one would catch our eye if we saw it on the shelf in a shop. The US cover will be on the left, and the UK cover will be on the right.

The Scores so far are: 
US: 4  UK: 6  Draw: 6

US vs UK Round 17

The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller

vs  

Jess says:  I like the UK one. I haven't read this, but I know Donna got it in her Mail Box. The only reason I like the red one, is because the girl on the front of the US one is creepy. I don't like creepy looking covers...they uh....creep me out? 

Donna says:  I'm really not sure about these covers. Neither of them are really eye catching & there both pretty boring BUT I'd have to go with the US cover, I agree with Jess that the girl is creepy but I'm more drawn to the US than the UK.

Which do you prefer?

Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent 

vs 

Jess Says: Ooh a little hard this one. I like that both covers have kept the interlocking O's. But I think I prefer the US cover, I like that the guy seems to be protective gives the sense of being 'Bound' I suppose. Anyway, I live the US one.

Donna Says:  I really like both covers but for me I'm going with the US. I like the colours and I think the general cover stands out a lot more than the UK. 

Which do you prefer?

Isn't the red Eternal Ones the US cover?? That's the one I got from amazon, and I didn't special order it to be UK or anything...lol

They may have changed it Andra but currently the red one is UK.

I'm gonna go with UK for both - the UK cover of Blood Bound has nicer font for the author's name, and I really like that.

THe Eternal ones those are both US covers too, the red one was the hardback cover, and they just released that other cover for the paperback (:

I like the Paperback cover for the first one and DEFF the UK one for the second one..it is soo much better ahah (:
