The Cover Wars: Blood Red Road

Rea of Rea's Reading and Reviews and I decided to get together to do a weekly meme where we would compare covers of the UK editions of books with those of the US editions.
The aim of this is to just have a bit of fun. We put ourselves in the position where we see both of these books side by side in the bookstore. Which would we choose? Why that one and not the other?

This week, we will be comparing the UK and US covers of Blood Red Road by Moira Young.

Note: This book now has a new cover, but we’ve taken the images of the two original covers.

The First book is the US version and the Second one is the UK

Tara says: This is a really hard one because I like them both for different reasons. I like the US version because of the mist and the person who is in the mist. The title is also really good in the US version. I like the UK version because I haven’t really seen a book cover quite like that. I am going to base this on if I walked into a shop and saw both which one would I buy. I would definitely buy the UK version.

Rea says: I’m afraid that in this case the UK cover just doesn’t do much for me at all. I’m not sure what exactly it is about the cover art that puts me off but it really doesn’t appeal to me. The US cover, though, is just… wow! I love the feeling of desolation, of emptiness, of solitude that the artist has managed to convey through a mere image. Even better, it’s so pretty! I love that cover. US for me.
