The Cover Wars: Throne of Glass

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 Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.

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

Tara says: I like both covers, but the US one is just like other covers out there whereas the UK one is a little different. The UK cover actually made me smile as it’s showing me what the girl is, and what she does, without even reading the blurb. UK WINS!

Rea says: This one is a fairly easy one for me. The US one is not all that extraordinary, though I do really like the castle in the background – even if it does look more like a ghost castle than one made of glass. The UK one, however, is original and beautiful. This is the one that I have and the back cover actually shows the same character facing away but wearing a dress now. This cover stands out and I fell in love with it the moment I first laid eyes on it. UK for me.


Week 32:      US: 5    UK: 19   Draw: 8

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!
