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
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

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
