UK vs. THE WORLD! (13)

UK vs. The world is a weekly meme I made up lol.
It's simlair to UK vs. US except the UK covers are battling it out with their foreign counterparts from all over the world, because who doesn't love judging books by their covers!

UK                            vs.                   Germany
Starcrossed book one
('Göttlich verdammt' translates to 'Divinely condemned' - According to Google translate.)

Mist: Ohhhh these are both so lovely!The German cover feels kind of historical and I really like the girls golden eye and frame and backgroud but I love the UK cover, the colour really stands out and I'm a sucker for lightening pictures so it's UK for me!

Ninfa: I like both covers for different reasons. Both have a Gold colour scheme which is really nice, and brings to mind royalty, or in this case, Gods so it works with the theme of the book. I like the male/female models in the UK cover and the thunder-like effect on the background, but in the German cover I really love the frame with the Greek-like drawings, and I love the model they picked...I think for me it's a German win but by a very little margin.

UK                         vs.                      France
Tempest book one.
('Les ennemis du temps' translates to 'The enemies of the time' - According to Google translate.)
Mist: I like both these covers but I like the UK cover a little bit more, it fits better into the theme of the book I think and I love the colour of the clouds and the tag line and the couple reaching for each other is interesting. The French cover is nice but I would think this was a book for boys and wouldn't pick it up.

Ninfa: UK win all the way. I just love the poses of the models, torn apart by this storm behind them, it picks up the tagline perfectly and it works so well on many levels. Definitely would pick this book up if i saw the UK cover. Not too hot on the French cover I'm afraid...looks like the guy is doing some skateboarding or something, doesn't really tell me much about the book...UK wins hands down

Which do you prefer?


  1. That is a really tough choice for Starcrossed but I think I would have to go with the Germany cover. But the UK cover for Tempest definitely wins. :)

  2. I'm going to have to say Uk for Tempest. That cover rocks!!!!

  3. I love the German cover for Starcrossed, but the UK Tempest is the better for that one (it's the US cover as well!)

  4. UK for both. I do like the German cover for Starcrossed but think the UK one fits better

  5. I like the German version on the first and the UK cover on the second.


Go on, comment and tell me what you think of this post... I dare you!
