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 Sky is Everywhere is...UK!!!!!! 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.

Synopsis: A modern day thrill ride, where a teen girl and her animal companion must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life—and her own.

Tella's brother is dying. He's got cancer, and Tella is helpless to save him. Or so she thought. When an invitation arrives for Tella to compete in the Brimstone Bleed, a deadly competition that will lead her through treacherous jungle and scorching desert, she doesn't think twice. Because the prize is a cure to any illness. But Tella will be facing more than just the elements.

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 I haven't read these books yet... however I DO love Victoria Scott's Dante Walker series, so I should probably remedy this ASAP!

As for the covers, I've seen the US covers in person and they are pretty amazing. I like that there's so much more to the US cover than the UK. I mean look at them side by side. There's no doubt in my mind that the US cover wins this round. The UK cover is nice but it's a bit too plain for me. Plain can be good, but in this case, eh... not so much.

So, with my vote going to the US cover this week I'm eager to hear which will get YOUR vote! Click on a cover below to cast your vote!
Michelle This is an easy choice for me this week. Both of these covers are amazing in their own way, the US one is very eye catching and draws you to it, but the UK is simple but also intriguing. I've not long finished reading the book, and while I do think the US one has some aspects of the story in its cover, my vote goes for the UK one this week. It's simple but the feather plays a mysterious role in the story, one that I hope to discover in the next book. Don't forget to vote for your favourite cover, and you can check out my review of Fire & Flood here.

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.
