Cover Wars : US Vs. The World Vol. 4

Inspired by I Want To Read That and Not Enough Bookshelves as well as my own love of pretty book covers, Books and Sensibility presents: Cover Wars.

 Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld

 This is one of my favorite books and yet I've never seen the UK cover until recently. In comparison the US cover is kind of lacking and I've always thought it  gave the wrong message. The novel is not about "preppy" as in the style of dress and the stereotypical people that wear it.  It's about a girl and a prep school.

Winner : UK

Triple Header: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

So, I  never thought much of this book, but apparently it is being optioned for a CW show.   They all feature  the classic  pretty girl in dress, but I like the Australian one best.   The other two look to one tune.

Winner : Australian

White Cat by Holly Black

I've seen this book everywhere,  it's always on the bargain table at some Books A Million. While I like the cool laid back look of the US cover, the UK cover it more darkly whimsical.

Winner: UK

These are my verdicts, what are yours and why ?

  1. I lovelovelove the Australian cover for Unearthly. My only - very small - gripe is that I'm not the biggest fan of the font used for the title. Otherwise it's rather beautiful.

  2. I LOVE this feature. Thanks so much for doing it.
