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.
These are my verdicts, what are yours and why ?

I’m a lifelong reader who started blogging about YA books in 2011 but now I read in just about every genre! I love YA coming of age stories, compelling memoirs and genre bending SFF. You can find me talking all things romance at Romance and Sensibility.
