UK vs. THE WORLD! (11)

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.                 Romania
Eve book one.

Mist: Hmm well I do like the Romanian cover but I don't think it suits the book, whereas the UK one does and it's a lot more animated and I like the colours better, definitely a UK win for me.

Ninfa: So difficult to choose, both covers are lovely and so similar in concept. The UK one is really haunting, we can mostly see this bridge stretching in front of the model and the greenish colour almost makes me feel like she's walking through a mist. The Romanian cover has again the bridge, though you can see the model's face. I love her hair and the windswept look, as well as the faint image of the moon above. I think by a small fraction it's a Romanian win.

UK                               vs.                    France
 Fire and thorns by Rae Carson
Fire and thorns book one.
('La fille de braises et de ronces' translates to 'The daughter or embers and brambles' - According to Google translate.)

Mist: I really don't like the UK cover at all, I mean the desert is nice but the rest I just don't like. The French cover is much prettier and intriguing, even if the model has forgotten to put her top on lol. I love the hand with the light on it, makes you want to know what that is all about.

Ninfa: Oh it's got to be a French win! The cover is very "Fantasy" inspired and I love the outfit, the jewelled dagger and the little light effects that suggests something special is happening. The UK cover is okay I guess, just not to my taste thought the desert shot behind the model's eyes is pretty cool. French win

Which do you prefer?


  1. Get choices. Definitely the uk cover for eve. love that cover. And the French cover for fire and thorns. I can't stand that UK cover.

  2. Great choices!!! I think I prefer the UK cover though =) Donna

  3. I love the UK cover of Eve .. I haven't read it so I can't say if it suits the book or not but I think it looks gorgeous !!

  4. I'm not a fan of either cover in the first set and I think the French cover is too busy in the second set. I would still pick the French cover though.


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