Book Wars a weekly feature hosted between two book review blogs – A Life Bound By BooksMuch 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 UK, 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 The Testing (The Testing #1) By: Joelle Charbonneau is... the UK 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.

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 Oh, an easy week for this week... I don't think I've ever felt like it's been an easy week.

Hands down the best cover goes to the US this week. The UK cover looks like someone's ripped the cover right off and we're looking at the title page on the inside. It's simple, which often works, yet this time it's TOO simple.

So my vote is for the US cover. Now tell us which one is your favorite in the poll below.
Michelle This is another week were the choice is so easy for me. I do own the US version on my iPad, but I will eventually have the UK one sitting on my shelves as it matches my UK cover for Slammed. However the US wins my vote every single time. The UK one doesn't really have anything in common with the story, yet the US one links in so well with the story itself, and the whole series too. It's bright and vibrant but also mysterious as the same time. It's a US vote for me this week.
VOTE for YOUR favorite cover of Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover NOW!

My Ratings

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. If you would like me to review a book, please contact me or view my Contact Information and Review Policy for further details.

5 Stars - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
4 Stars - I Really liked/Loved it.
3 Stars - I liked it/Was pretty good.
2 Stars - It was, eh okay.
1 Star - It just wasn't for me.
