Special Note: This weeks Book Wars will be open for voting for two weeks instead of the usual one. Due to the Holidays and busy schedules we'll be skipping next week to spend time with our families. Happy Holidays!
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 US. 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!
Before we get to this weeks Book Wars, we have a winner to announce. The Book Wars winner for Point of Retreat (Slammed #2) By: Colleen Hoover is..... the US COVER!!! Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner!
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.Title: My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories
