US vs. UK

Everyone knows I'm completely obsessed with the UK. "US vs. UK" was created by Jenny from Wondrous Reads and it compares covers from books released in the two countries. 

Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Novel
Today's comparison is Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Novel by Candace Bushnell. I'm so torn! Both covers are pretty in pink, and all things girly. The US cover has more of a designer clutch look. It reminds me of Chanel. The UK cover makes me think of the HBO series, Sex and The City and The Big Apple. This is the sequel to Carrie Diaries where Carrie meets Samantha and Miranda in New York. Again, I'm so torn! The deciding factor is Samantha Jones's Top Ten Tips for City Girls (on possibly the back cover of the US version). Isn't it fab? Don't forget to pick up your copy. It hits stores today!

Which cover do you favor? 

Total: US 3, UK 2


  1. ok, i'm with you on this one. I'm torn too. the UK cover does give you that Sex in the City thought. If i was an author i would not want anything to remind readers of any movie or book. So, I'm going to go with US. I really like them both. That pink apple is so cute.

  2. The pink apple IS very cute. We're ---><--- on this one.

  3. Now the dilemma is whether to purchase the eBook or the hardcover. I'm so tempted to click "Buy Now" on my NOOKColor, but the US cover needs to be on display on my bookshelf. Hmmm...

  4. They are both cute covers! I think I like the UK cover slightly more, though.

  5. Yes, both covers are cute. It's a tough choice!

  6. I like both but I loooooove the UK cover. That apple and gold glimmer of the title. Too cute!

  7. The apple is what makes the UK cover.
