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 US, it’s sometimes vastly different across the pond in the UK. 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 Every DayBy: David Levithan is...!!!!!! 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 This week is a bit different because the cover we have shown is the original US cover and the one I actually own, however the covers have since changed to the one shown above.

I really like BOTH the US and what's shown as the UK cover! I used to think that the cover shown as the UK version was so dramatic however the new US cover is pretty amazing! I like that it just so fits! I like how it's a bit brighter than the UK cover... and I also like that they've kept the images that are under the back ground to keep this in line with the original books.

So, it's without a doubt that the vote for this week, even with how much I love my original cover... is the NEW US version.

Which one do YOU like best?
Michelle This is an easy week for me this week. The UK cover has been around for a while with various stages of font design, and although it's been published for a few years, I wanted to do this today to include the newly designed US covers. The UK cover is very nice, and under any other circumstances I would have chosen this as my favorite, especially with the London background, but the new covers for the US books are AMAZING. I am so in love with the US covers for this series. I love how it focuses on an different characters for each book. I love everything about the makeover for the US book, and I really need to have these sitting on my shelf. It's a very easy US win for me this week, but which cover gets your vote?

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.
