♠Blogmoir: a memoir in blog format of events and people in this fuckery called life.
Everyone knows I'm completely obsessed with the UK. "US vs. UK" was created by Jenny fromWondrous Reads and it compares covers from books released in the two countries.
Today's comparison is Water for Elephants: A Novel by Sara Gruen. The US cover shows a circus curtain with someone peeking through, possibly looking at elephants. The UK cover shows a stunning woman and ... that's it. No reference to water or elephants. The woman certainly doesn't look thirsty, or dressed for the most spectacular show on earth. Although, I realize she must portray one of the main characters. This was a no brainer for me. The US cover wins! Check out the movie trailer below that stars Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.
