Cover Wars: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

Patrick Ness' latest book is about  average teens who live in a world filled with the typical trope-y YA heroes constantly causing disruption. In the last few months two very different covers for this novel were released which means I'm going to pitch them against each other.




U.S.

If I didn't know any better I would think this was a graphic novel because there are so many character illustrations on the front cover. I like the diveristy on the cover how they show characters of different races and body types. Also, this cover has a super special bonus because it will glow in the dark. Which is a clever incentive to get people to buy hardcovers



U.K.  

This was the first cover I saw for this book. Like the US one it has some illustration but it's much cleaner and relies more on typography. This cover seems to be selling Ness as an author more than the US, because the cover tells me nothing about the book.


Verdict ?

I think this is a tie for me, although I would much more likely buy the US version because.... rule of cool.
