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!
I can't pick which one I like most, they both seem pretty good to me. The UK cover, the one I had, has this motif of snowflakes which are also on the pages which I thought was in keeping with the theme and setting of the book. I also like the background image of the storm and the sea, once again reflecting the storyline but also Katsa herself. However I do know that girls on front covers are not incredibly original but this silhouette is quite striking and powerful.
The US cover on the other hand is a little bit more unique, I love the more medieval looking background and the mixture of blue and green to represent Katsa's eyes. I also like that the focal point is the sword which makes it stand out.
This time I think it's a draw.
Which cover do you prefer? Which cover would you buy? Which one do you think stands out the most?
I hope everyone has a great Friday and I'll see you tomorrow with my review of Graceling.
