The Cover Wars: Immortal Beloved


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 Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan.

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



Tara’s Says: I like both covers. They both have their unique thing about them which makes me want to buy them. The US one has a girl and then the title is sideways, whereas on the UK one there are flowers the title is the right way up - where it should be. They are both so pretty, but I will go with UK just because the title is easier to read; I don’t have to tilt my head. So UK wins!

Rea says: There is absolutely no contest here. I suppose that the US cover is pretty enough in its own right, though I’m not sure it’d ever really attract my attention. The UK cover, though, is absolutely gorgeous. When I saw this book in the store, I bought it without even looking at the blurb because I just wanted this amazing cover on my shelves (luckily the story is just as good as the cover!). UK for me.


Score: 

Week 26:      US: 4    UK: 13    Draw: 8

  1. Can I just make my comment here? I think I like the UK one better. I'm a bit over the whole girl in a flowing dress cover thing. While they are very beautiful and capture my eye, sometimes it makes them all look the same.
