Book Covers: UK vs US

So this is going to be a monthly series from me. Every month I will show you three different books with the UK and US Covers. All you have to do is decide which one you like more, of course, I will have my own opinion. But there is no right or wrong answer. And as I am from the UK myself, the UK covers will be shown on the left and the US covers on the right.


In my opinion the UK covers are better. The US ones are very cliché; the perfect people. But what I also dislike about the US covers are that it shows you what the characters look like which you may disagree with and think the models do not suit the characters. Whereas the UK cover is simple but eye-catching at the same time. The yellow/green really stands out.

The UK cover is okay I guess, but the only thing I really hate about it is that the male model is the guy who is on the cover of the Lux Series by Jennifer Armentrout. Also the bright light blue font is really hideous. It could be a bit darker. The US cover is okay as well. I'm not in love with it, but out of the both the US cover wins hands down. It has a bit more to it then the UK cover.

The clear winner is the UK cover. It's so much nicer than the US edition and it also stands out and shows the storyline a bit more. What really stands out to me is the eye colour and the typography. It really adds a great amount of depth to the story. As for the US cover, I like it but I feel like it's too busy with the typography.

So these are the three books I picked. What did you think? Do you agree or disagree with me? Then tell me why.
