The Cover Wars: The Name of the Star

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 The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson.

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

Tara Says: They both are completely different and I do like them both. The UK cover has a girl and it’s black and plain but I really like the style of the title. The US one has the girl lying down and a foggy bit with a man standing there and it just makes me want to read it way more than the UK one, so US wins for me.

Rea says: In this case, it just comes down to which cover attracts me more. I’m trying to put my finger on why the UK cover doesn’t really work for me: I think it’s because it’s a bit too busy for my tastes, but don’t hold me to that. I like the relative simplicity and the fogged-over look of the US cover. It creates a better feel of the story for me. US for me.


Week 23:      US: 4    UK: 11    Draw: 8
