The UK is my hometown glory but I live in the US. The US vs. UK bookish meme compares book covers published in the two countries.
Today's first comparison is Half of a Yellow Sun. The US cover shows a full yellow sun with a silhouette of a woman walking in a field. The UK cover shows the side profile of a woman's face with yellow and pink accent colors. No question which book would grab my attention from a book shelf first: UK! Total: US 24, UK 25
The second comparison is Shopaholic to the Stars. The US cover is very plain with just a yellow background, block lettering and a pink high heel. The UK cover is more chick lit and Becky Bloomwood-y with a woman holding shopping bags walking in Hollywood. The UK cover matches the title perfectly. Total: US 24, UK 26
