♠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. Quite a few comparisons today since I haven't done this meme in months of Sundays.
US on top; UK on bottom
The first comparison is The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. The US covers are on the top. The UK covers are on the bottom. The US covers are simple with a solid color in the background and one large image of the mockingjay. The UK covers are more busy with the capital letters "HG" and an image in the center. This is a classic case of simple is better. I favor the good 'ole US covers.
Total: US 15, UK 12
The next comparison is The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner. The covers are similar and have the same theme of a woman in a pool. Because they are so alike, it is difficult to choose just one. I declare a tie!
Total: US 16, UK 13
The third comparison is Bared to You: A Crossfire Novel by Sylvia Day. Both covers feature a dark gray background with a solo image. Simple, eye catching and sexy. The US cover displays a pair of earrings. The UK cover shows a pair of heels. Both state the same blurb: He possessed me and obsessed me. I am like any other chick and love shoes, especially heels. So it's no question about which cover I favor more: the UK version.
