US vs UK (#30)

Welcome to Book Passion for Life's 30th 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: 7  UK: 13  Draw: 8

US vs UK Round 30

Between by Jessica Warman


Jess says: Hmm, this is a tough one. The US cover is the same image as Sherry Gammons Unlovable. Which I love, but the UK cover has it's good points too. Hmm, I don't really know what the story is about so I don't really know which one fits the storyline better, Argh it's a hard one...I think I'm going to go with the US, only because the UK one  feels like the girl is like a doll, and creepy girl dolls...well...creep me out.

Donna says:  I think both covers have some very good points about them but I have to say I prefer the UK cover. I think the US cover is kind of creepy but the UK one looks is actually really pretty. So UK for me.

Unleashed by Nancy Holder


Jess says: Argh hard one! I love them both...I can't choose. They're both fantastic. BUT if I really had to choose? I'd pick the US cover. I just everything about it a little better than the UK cover.

Donna says:  Oooh this is a hard one. I like both! There both as creepy as each other and they both kind of give off the same message. Ummm....but to choose....I can't. I like them both! 

Which do you prefer?

Okay guys, this weeks US vs UK goes to.....US with 2 votes

I'm going to have to with the US for both covers.
I like the girl swinging in the clouds on the cover of Between. And I like the moon highlighting the girl with her head thrown back. Can't wait to see which covers are next.

But I caaaaan't decide for Unleashed. I love the US cover, but the more I look at the UK cover the more I like it.
Hmmm... okay, US for Unleashed as well. :D

Between - The US cover. I love the atmosphere of it, how the girl is in the center and how the image seems to suck you into the book.

Unleashed - This is a tough one! I really love them both, but I think I prefer the US cover, if only because it has an image of the moon and I love the moon.

Between: I'm going with UK. The UK one makes me wonder what she's looking at, whereas the US just makes me think: "when would anything like that ever happen?"
Unleashed: This one isn't so hard for me. US. It looks... I don't know, mysterious?
Cool picks! :D

The US between is totally creepy but I love the colours on the UK cover so it's a tough choice!

And I like both Unleashed covers but I don't love them, but I think I like the US one an incy bit more
