UK vs US Book Covers is a feature on Books Worth Remembering. I've seen it done on other blogs and thought it was a really great idea because I am strongly opinionated when it comes to having different book covers!
There is seriously no competition on this whatsoever - The US Cover is a vast improvement to the UK one. It's incredibly cheesy and as my sister so lovingly put it (And I'm paraphrasing here) that the UK Hex Hall Cover, "looks like a twelve year old’s first attempt at using Gimp" which is pretty accurate. I like the different shadows on the UK cover but apart from that it has no redeeming qualities; I can honestly assure you that it looks so much worse in real life.
I like the girl on the US cover, I think that it is a pretty good representation of Sophia and also of Hecate hall's uniform (unlike the UK version - I mean I think the girl in the middle is supposed to represent Jenna because apart from the pink stripe she does not look like that at all)
SIDE NOTE - One of my sisters is called Rachael so as I've been writing about Rachel Hawkins I keep spelling her name wrong because it just looks weird to me!
Anways! A definite win for US this time.
What do you think? Which one do you prefer? Which one would you buy? If you've read Hex Hall - which one do you think best represents the story and the characters?
My review will be up tomorrow! I hope everyone had a good Friday and has an awesome weekend :)
