Cover Wars.

Cover wars is a brand new meme hosted by Alex at Electrifying Reviews (Check him out!)
In this meme I will discuss two of the same covers one from the Uk, and the Us. I will then decide which one I like best!
I think for this meme, I may do it once of twice a month, or maybe, just whenever I fell like it!
P.S I know I already have another weekly meme called 'Cover Crazy' but who dosn't like book covers, eh?!

Jellicoe Road - Melina Marchetta

Us Uk^

Okay, so first of all let me just say that I think they are both beautiful covers, and are both very creative. I for one however, have aslways loved the Us cover. Why this is? I'm not entirley sure. The writing on the Us one is really cool as it is kind of funky in a way. I have not read this book but I have a hitch that the flower may resemble something. The Uk one is also pleasing with a whole new palette of colours. I love the way the girl is transparent, but I am not a fan of the style of font they have used for this one.
Winner: US

^Us Uk^

I own the Uk cover and for once I actually think that these covers are pretty evenly matched! I adore the font they have used on the Us cover, it's cute its fun, and it looks really cool! The font on the Uk cover is also cool. I like the way they replaced the 'O' with a love heart as this makes it look super cute. I dont really like the jumper the girl on the Us cover is wearing though, it looks a little bit old. The girl on the Us cover I think, is posing MUCH better and actually looks like a flirty teenager, and with the checkered spine, what could be better!?
Winner: Us

I have actually read Pretty Little Liars (You can check out my review here.) And for me, hands down, the Us cover wins. In my opinion, you really have to read the book to under stand the Us cover, but once you have you will completley understand. The girls in pretty little liars are all percieved as 'flawless' like a barbie doll in a sense, and this is what this cover represents. For me the Uk cover is drab, and euggh, I really dont like that font. It's just so Boring.
Winner: Us

I think we have a clear winner today. Even though being english myself, you just cannot fault these covers.

  1. I agree with you on 'Jellicoe Road' and 'Pretty Little Liar's but I think that the UK 'I'd tell you I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill you'-cover are much prettier than the Us one :)
