UK vs US Book Covers #1

Sometimes it is the case that when books are published in different countries there is changed, further it is for the good or bad so I thought it would be nice to compare them. So let's get started...

Trouble by Non Pratt

         UK                                   vs                                           US

Trouble                                                                                       Trouble

First off it is good to note that I haven't read this book yet but I do know the basic premise of the story which therefore means that I am just going to base it on the cover. Although I do think the US cover is pretty, this time the winner is UK as it represents the book better. 

Winner: UK

Uglies by Scott Westerfield 

             UK                                   vs                                      US
Uglies (Uglies, #1)Uglies (Uglies, #1)                                                                                                         
















Unlike Trouble, I have read this book and I do believe that the Uglies UK book cover does represent the book better than the US book cover. The scalpel is used to represent the ugly transformation and to be honest I don't understand the aim of the US cover.  

Winner: UK

Divergent by Veronica Roth

               UK                                   vs                                      US

Divergent (Divergent, #1)
Divergent (Divergent, #1)

For a change I like the US cover more than the UK cover, I just think it represents the book better than the UK one although the UK cover has the 3 birds representing her family. Also I find the US cover is just prettier than the UK one. 

Winner: US

One by Sarah Crossan

                UK                                   vs                                      US


One

This novel is about conjoined twins and I think that both of them are equally as beautiful but I think for this time, I will have to go with UK. This is due to the typography as it is nicer than the US one and there seems to be a loving relationship by the two one the UK cover. This comes out later this month, I am excited to read it. 

Winner:UK

In Bloom by Matthew Crow 

           UK                                    vs                                      US

In Bloom                                                                                The Brilliant Light of Amber Sunrise

This is one of my favourite books ever and I have to say that I enjoy the UK cover more, I think that it is so pretty, The other cover is just to colourful and I don't understand the name change that much although nothing to do with the cover. Yet again I choose the UK cover. 

Winner: UK

1 Year Blogging Anniversary and Giveaway (CLOSED)

So if you could not see by the title of the blog post, it has been a year since I posted my first blog post. I can happily say that this blog has changed a lot in this one year, I mean the layout has not been dramatically altered but the content has. This blog has increased my passion for reading and has been a way that I can spread this with everyone in this community. This has led me to read some incredible books and interact with some great people and I can happily say that I feel part of the community. 

Due to this being the first year of the blog existing, I hope for this to be the first of many so to track the changes in my blogging life especially in terms of my reading life. So let's get started...

Q1) Favourite book?

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- No book that I have read in the last two years seems to surpass how much I love this book but I am not saying that the books that I have read after this one are bad I just like this one a bit more...










Q2) What book do you hope to re…

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (OPEN)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...
