UK vs. THE WORLD! (18)

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!
I've added a linky to the bottom, if you'd like to join in, make your own post then put the link to it there.

UK                           vs.                      Germany
Everneath book one.
('Ewiglich die Sehnsucht' translates to 'The desire for ever' - According to Google translate.)

Mist: This isn't a hard choice, UK!! It's so gorgeous, I love the colours, the smoke, the dress! The germa cover is nice but it's nothing special.

Ninfa: Really love the UK cover. The dress made of smoke is just so beautiful! The German cover is just not for me, though I like the pomegranate in the pic cause it reminds me of the Myth of Persephone, which I think is the bases for this story.
It's a no contest though, UK all the way!

UK                          vs.                Australia
Mist: Having read this book I like the UK cover because I think the piano and the music note charm suit the character, but the Aus cover is lovely to, another gorgeous dress! I also really like the tagline so I think I'm gonna go with Aus.

Ninfa: The Aussie cover has the most gorgeous dress on it! In comparison the UK one looks plain and boring. I'm not a huge fan of either covers, but the dress and the pretty floral pattern definitely draw me more than the model on the UK cover.
This is an Aussie win.

Which do you prefer?

  1. I definitely prefer the UK versions of both. I had to laugh though: at a quick glance I totally thought that was a radish! I had to do a double-take. As for Alice, I like the UK because I'd rather make my own assumptions about what a character looks like than have her plastered on the front of the book. IDK, I just work better that way.

  2. I love the UK version of Everneath and it was hard but I think the Aussie one is better for the second book. :D

  3. I love the UK cover for Everneath. It is gorgeous and fits well with the story. Not sure I like either cover for Putting Alice Back Together very much but if I had to choose I would pick the UK as well. :)

  4. Both versions of the Everneath cover are lovely, I think, but the UK one is a bit more striking. Really beautiful.

    Putting Alice Back Together? I'd choose the Aussie cover, probably because I adore that dress! haha

  5. Uk for both!! Especially for Putting Alice back together. The uk cover fits with the story. The piano, the music note even the blue dress mean something in the actual story. The Aus one is stunning but doesn't fit the story.
