The Cover Wars: Looking for Alaska

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 Looking for Alaska by John Green.

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

Tara says: The US version looks old fashioned a bit, and a little on the boring side. The UK cover is amazing and just stunning. I love the fact that there’s water with a heart in it. Everything that the UK version has, the US doesn’t. It’s UK for me.

Rea says: I think that Looking for Alaska is a case where the US and UK covers are just as appealing. I like the colours on the UK cover, but I’m not really sure what sort of emotion it’s supposed to instil in me. The US cover has the sort of imagery that you can’t mistake. I really like how much comes through from the simple image of a blown out candle. It’s the sort of image that says a thousand words. US for me.


Week 20:      US: 2    UK: 11    Draw: 6

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!
