Blog tour; Born wicked - Cover comparison

Hi guys, welcome to today's stop on the UK tour for Born wicked by Jessica Spotswood!

Today, me and some fellow bloggers will be comparing the UK and US covers for the book and deciding on our favourites.

So first of course, here are the covers!

The first is the UK cover and the second is the US cover.

Mist: Personally I love both but I lean more to the UK cover for the gorgeous colours and its all a bit mysterious with the birds, particularly the one she's holding so calmly, I like the US cover, the flowers really stand out, but what exactly is she doing lying in the grass? UK wins for me!

Ninfa: I'm actually having a hard time picking my favourite out of these covers. They're both fab, the UK one is very witchy and magical in a dark way. I love the purple tones of the background, the full moon and the murder of crows taking flight. The model looks like she's about to cast a spell and it's all very atmospheric.
The US cover is stunning, I adore the earthy feel of it, and the splash of colours the flowers provide. The model's eyes also seem to stand out and it gives you that wicked vibe.
Very, very hard choice, but just because of my fascination with all things witchy, the UK cover makes the cut. It's just Witch-Tastic UK wins!

Donna from Book passion for life: US Cover....I really like the US cover. It's eye catching and comes across quite enchanting looking and it also fits the times of the book too, however, after reading the book I don't feel it fits the book as much as the UK cover does. UK Cover....out of the US and UK cover, this is my favourite. Everything matches the book perfectly..the crows, the girl on the cover and my favourite part, the sunset. In the story, this sunset is easy to imagine and the colours really stand out making this book so much more stunning.

Emma from Bellebooks: I like the both covers, I like the colour scheme for the US cover with the greens and muted tones, but then the bright flowers standing out. But I've seen a lot of covers with a girl laying in the grass recently. To me it does seem a bit generic, because of that I probably wouldn't pick it up if I saw it in a book store, sorry.
I love the UK cover, I might be being a bit bias as this is the cover I have on my book shelf! I really love the crows in the background, to me that gives it a proper witchy feel before I've even read the blurb. I like the pink and purples used in it, it just seems to have more going on and drawing me in than the US cover does. Also it just reminds me of 666 Park Avenue, which I've really been loving lately so maybe thats drawing me to the UK cover more as well.
My winner has to be the UK cover.

Born wicked

Our mother was a witch too, but she hid it better. I miss her.

To me, the magic feels like a curse. According to the Brothers, it's devil-sent. Women who can do magic-they're either mad or wicked. So I will do everything in my power to protect myself and my sisters. Even if it means giving up my life - and my true love.

Because if the Brothers discover our secret, we're destined for the asylum, or prison . . . or death.
