GoodRead - UK Cover Vs US Cover

I've seen this done before on several blogs and, I love the idea behind this and decided that I will copy it too. Now, I don't know who started it but I will find out and I will thank either via edit or in another blog.

Basically, this is the bit where we compare the UK cover of a book with the US cover of the same book. Now I know I talked briefly about this in a previous blog entry, "Never Judge A Book By Its Cover...?" (http://thepewterwolf.blogspot.com/2009/11/never-judge-book-by-its-cover.html) but seeing these blogs and rereading my blog, I thought it would be a cool idea to compare and see what we (me and you, dear reader) think about each cover...

Wasn't sure where to start, went into a bookshop today and randomly picked a book at random. I choose "Priestess Of The White" by Trudi Canavan.

So, this is the UK cover of "Priestess Of The White":

And this is the US cover of "Priestess Of The White":

So, which cover do you prefer? In my opinion, I prefer the UK cover more. There's something quie mysterical about the UK cover, whereas with the US cover...

But I'm more intrigued about your answers. Which cover do you prefer? The UK Cover? Or the US Cover?

  1. The UK easily. The US looks more like a Mills and Boon mixed with B grade fantasy.

    Maybe I'm just more familiar with the UK style though because that's what we have in Australia.
