The Cover Wars: Ash

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 Ash by Malinda Lo.

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

Tara Says: They both look really stunning and beautiful as they both have the girl and something which just makes it special… But the UK one is brighter and colourful, which makes me want to read that the most, so UK for me.

Rea says: The UK cover is really very pretty with the glass slippers being an obvious giveaway as to the book’s subject. The art really draws my eye. I find, however, that the gothic, lost look of the US covers draws my attention better. US for me.


Week 23:      US: 3    UK: 11    Draw: 8

Do you want to join in too? Here’s how:

Step 1: Copy and paste the Cover Wars image.

Step 2: Copy and paste our intro or write your own but it must link back to both of our blogs.

Step 3: Copy and paste the US and UK cover images.

Step 4: Compare the two.

Step 5: Either use our score or keep your own score.

Step 6: Post it and share it!

Thanks and have fun!


  1. I agree with Rea, the US one is much more mysterious and really draws my eye

  2. I like the UK cover a lot, but I've decided the US one catches my attention more. Great post.
