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 Blood Kiss by J.R. Ward is... the UK cover!!!!!! Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Synopsis: Since school had let out in May, gold graffiti had been popping up around San Francisco. Single words painted in enormous golden letters appeared on bridges and building fronts. Not semi-illegible, angry gang tags, but beautifully executed fonts done by someone with talent and skill...

Meeting Jack on the Owl—San Francisco's night bus—turns Beatrix's world upside down. Jack is charming, wildly attractive...and possibly one of San Francisco's most notorious graffiti artists.

On midnight rides and city rooftops, Beatrix begins to see who this enigmatic boy really is. But Jack is hiding much more - and can she uncover the truth that leaves him so wounded?

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 First off, I should mention that I haven't seen either of these books in person. I have seen the US cover floating around the internet, but neither in person.

There's things I like about both covers, however when I read what Michelle had to say about these covers, I think I have to agree with the UK version winning my vote. It packs more of a punch, and intrigues me more so than the US cover. Not to mention I think I like the US title more so as well.

This week it's a UK vote for me. Which gets your vote? Click and tell us below!
Michelle This is an easy vote for me this week, but before I share it I want to talk about the covers. Both of these covers represent the book in their own way, the US cover has the graffiti aspect, and the anatomy aspect in it's title, which is relevant to both May and Jack. The UK cover has a really simple design, but is also relevant to the story with the with title and the image. My own copy of this book was a proof copy, and over here, the UK publisher had the proof with different designs, different words on the cover, done in the same style they were graffitied in the book. Even before I saw these books side by side, my choice was the UK cover, and even now the UK cover wins for me. I like the foiled effect, I like how simple but effective it is. I loved this book and my review can be found here. Make sure to vote for your favourite cover below.
