US vs UK (#40)

Welcome to Book Passion for Life's 40th 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.

US vs UK Round 40

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson 


Jess says: Ooh this is a tough one. I really like both. I think I like the UK slightly better, it's more fun and kicky! Makes you want to pick it up.

Donna says:  I adore the UK covers for this author. Her other book Amy and Roger's Epic Detour cover was just brilliant so to see another awesome cover from the UK publishers is great. Although I do like the US cover I think the UK covers are more fun and bright and it makes you want to pick it up straight away. I cannot wait for this release! 

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris 


Jess says: Rah! This is a hard one again. I really like both of them, but I think I prefer the UK just because of the countdown on the cover. The US is good, but it just reminds me more of a TV Show poster than a book cover? You know what I mean?

Donna says:  Umm....this is a hard one for me because I actually like both. They both look awesome but if I was to pick it for my shelf then I'd go with the UK cover. I love the countdown on the cover and the fonts. It makes the book stand out that much more. 

Which do you prefer?

Okay guys, this weeks US vs UK goes to.......UK

Come back next week for more US vs UK! :)

Hmmm, I'd pick the US covers for both :D I just adore the US cover for Unraveling! *.*

For me, I too would pick the US covers for both. Suits the stories more. Love love love the Unraveling cover!

I like the US cover for Second Chance Summer but like the UK cover better for Unraveling. :)

I would definitely take the US cover for Second Chance Summer because it just appeals to my soft, YA side while the UK looks a little too bright and targeted for a younger age. Unraveling's vote from me has to go to the UK though so it's 50:50 for me.

I prefer the US cover for Second Chance Summer! I think the colours and fonts are better.

UK has the better cover for Unravelling though! I like them both, but the UK cover makes the story look a little more exciting.

The U.S Unraveling cover looks like a movie poster, so I'm partial to the U.K
