Book Wars a weekly feature hosted between two book review blogs – A Life Bound By Books & Much Loved Books!

It’s a fact that book lovers know all about the covers of the books they covet. Often when a title is released here in the US, it’s sometimes vastly different across the pond in the UK. So, Michelle from Much Loved Books and I have come together to create Book Wars to talk about the difference in covers when it comes to the US vs. UK versions.

We hope from time to time authors will chime in with their thoughts as well. We welcome everyone to comment and share their thoughts too! The more the merrier!

The winner of book wars for Cry Wolf By: Patricia Briggs is.... the US COVER!!! 

Also, the winner of the giveaway we held with the Cry Wolf Book Wars has been notified. 

Also, there's a poll at the bottom of the post that we'd love to hear your input for the two covers! Tell us which one YOU love the most.

Synopsis: One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

Let the Wars Begin: Its now time to make our decision, let's see what we think about the covers and pick our favorite cover.

Lisa  This is a HUGE, MEGA, FAVORITE trilogy of mine... and I LOVED this book. I'll totally admit that I haven't read the last one because I'm dreading what I think happens. But I love these covers. They are amazing in person and I love seeing them on my shelves. Well, the US ones on my shelves. I have seen the UK covers in person at book shops but I'm still partial to the US covers. There's just something so incredible about them. I see something new on the US covers just about every time I look at them. Love tree too!

So this week my vote goes to the US cover! Check out my review for: Divergent
Michelle This is an easy choice for me this week. While I do love the USA cover, the scenic view of the city and ho the symbol represents the factions, I have to go with the home side this week, UK.
I love the colouring of this book and in real life the leaves look fantastic on the cover. I love the sky in the background, but also how it is just the silhouette of a person standing alone.

  1. The UK one is pretty, but the US one is more like the story. <3

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down.
