The Cover Wars: Partials

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 Partials by Dan Wells.

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

Tara Says: The covers are really similar apart from a few differences. The UK one is darker than and doesn’t really stand out as much as the US one, which has brighter colours and the title stands out more, so US for me.

Rea says: This is a case where the difference between the covers is really very small. It’s all about which shading you prefer. Personally, I prefer the more natural, yellowy-browns to the purples. US for me.


Week 22:      US: 3    UK: 11    Draw: 7

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 think I like the colors in the US version a lot better then the UKs. Adds to the dystopian feel of the story. Plus there's too much written on the UK version.
