The Cover Wars: Fateful


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 Fateful by Claudia Gray.

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




Tara Says: They are both very different. The UK one has a girl in a red dress on a ship, where the US one has a girl in the water. I don’t really like either but I do love the dress that the girl has on in the UK one, so UK for me!
Rea says: This is where I show my materialism. The UK cover appeals to me more and I’m fairly sure it’s all about that red dress. It doesn’t help that the US cover isn’t very accurate – there should be ripples about her (she does look like she’s wading forwards) and her dress should have water soaked up beyond the water level. Definitely UK for me.

Score: 

Week 31:      US: 5    UK: 18   Draw: 8
