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 The Rest of Us Just Live Here By: Patrick Ness is..... the  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.

Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, starts dating a biker she knows is completely wrong for her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when she’s kidnapped and transported into a hell on earth she never could have imagined.

Born and bred into the Hells Raiders MC, Nathaniel “Reverend” Malloy lives and dies for his brothers. But when he becomes the unexpected savior of a rival club’s captive, Rev makes it his personal mission to nurse Annabel back to health—and to shelter her from the nightmares that torment her.

Once Annabel heals, she’s stunned to realize she is falling for the seductive man who saved her. Faced with their impossible attraction, can she accept the life he leads, or will Rev walk away from the only life he’s ever known for the woman he was never supposed to love?

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 So, this week I've picked another MC book. I mean you won't see me saying no to an MC book, why not two awesome covers to go up against each other again this week?

I haven't read this one yet, but I do have it to read I hope soon and am really looking forward to it. And when I look at these two covers.. wow! I kind of like them BOTH!

For the first book in the series I had voted for the US cover and this time around while I DO like the US cover a lot I'm leading more to the UK side this time around. I like the text a bit more, I like the colors and the color treatment that the UK cover has this time around... and I'm liking the model a bit more too. ;)

All around I really like the look of the UK cover and I can't wait to see it in person!

With the UK getting my vote this time around, which one gets YOURS? Let us know below.
Michelle This is the first time I have seen the US cover for this book. The UK one is currently on NetGalley so I've gotten a glimpse or two of this very nice cover.

Looking at both of these covers side by side it's easy for me to see which one I prefer. The US cover is very eye catching, and I like how we get to see more than just the cover model. The UK cover though is the one that I'm drawn to. I like how dark it is, and that we get a very up close and personal shot of the cover model. Like Lisa, I also like the styling of the text and how it's laid out, even down to the addition of the wings at the side.

It's a UK vote for me this week, don't forget to leave your vote below.

VOTE for YOUR favorite cover of Redemption Road NOW!

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.
