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 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 Redemption Road by Katie Ashley is...!!!!!! Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Don’t forgive and never forget has always been Peri’s creed. But her day job makes it difficult: she is a drafter, possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time, yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote.

When Peri discovers her name on a list of corrupt operatives, she realizes that her own life has been manipulated by the agency. She joins forces with a mysterious rogue soldier in a deadly race to piece together the truth about her final task, unable to trust even herself.

About the Author:

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 Michelle picked a book this week that I've not heard of or seen the covers for and going into this blind I have to say I'm not really impressed with either of them.

They are both kind of bland and unimpressive. And the only thing that the two have in common is the clock theme.

When I take a look at both of these I have to choose the UK cover for one thing and one thing only. It's a bit brighter with the orange and red tones. While the US cover is just kind of... there.

It might look like this week was easy for me, but it wasn't. It's sometimes difficult in choosing a favorite when you aren't pulled in one direction or the other at all. Good choice Michelle!

Do you have a favorite? Give us your vote below.
Michelle I love both of these covers for The Drafter, and how vastly different they are. I have this book waiting to be read, so I have no idea if any of the covers have a relevance to the story itself, without the clock faces.

I like the rougher effect of the US cover, how the clock face is faded and worn. But I like how bright and vibrant the UK cover is, and sitting next to eh US cover, this is the one that would stand out more for me.

My vote this week goes to the UK cover. I love the brightness, the deep vibrant red, the clock effect, and the shadowy figures. Don't forget to cast your vote below.
