UK vs THE WORLD (57)

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                 Australia

Mist: The thing I like about both these covers is the mouth being covered, its a very literal interpretation of the cover but I think the UK cover is my favourite, its a little more fun and colourful and screams YA, the Aussie cover is nice but beyond the quirk of the covered mouth, its just a girls face.

Ninfa: Very similar covers, but so different at the same time.
The UK cover is more fun and colourful, and I absolutely love the tag line and the font. Definitely more eye catching then the Aussie cover, with its muted colours and washed out feel; not fond of the tag line either, it's not as intriguing as the UK one.
UK wins for me.

Which do you prefer?


  1. I think it depends on the type of impression you get from the cover. The UK version looks more upbeat and maybe even quirky, while the Aussie version looks more serious and not a light read. It's always really confusing when different publishers have such different covers for their editions. A girl in the UK could pick this up and think it's funny and witty and it ends up being depressing and scary, while a girl in Australia could pick it up thinking it's a serious and intense novel, only to find out it's comical and light hearted. For the reason I just mentioned, I'd probably go with the Aussie cover, just because I'd rather go into a story knowing it's intense or sad and leave with a more positive impression than to go into it thinking its a quick and light read and being upset at the end. I know good books are supposed to make you think, but I think that's just unfair advertising.

  2. Either of these is better than the pearly white "nothing" cover that the US release got. But, I lean towards the Aussie version cover myself.


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