US Vs. UK: Everything Beautiful Covers

US // UK

This is an easy choice for me, I'm going for the UK cover. I think the US one is quite boring, and it doesn't represent the character of Riley well at all. Also, what's with the girl's face missing from the picture? It just looks weird. I love the quote from the book used on the UK cover, and think it has more of a 'holiday camp' feel to it. I wonder what the US paperback edition will end up looking like?

I like the idea of the US one but the photo isn't that good. UK wins!

I agree. The UK is really cool. I like the heart scratched into the tree.

Hmm. Not much a fan of the UK's disembodied arms (they look like they're not attached to anything!! creepy!!) but the US one IS really boring, despite the pleasantness of all the components: the t-shirt, the sign, the background. I don't know which one I'd choose!

I definitely prefer the UK one because the US model is completely wrong for Riley.

Gosh. UK, definitely. The US one is just....ew.

But it IS weird how the arms are just floating...

I kind like the US one, the random arms around the tree creep me out.

I got bored and edited the pic. http://s476.photobucket.com/albums/rr128/Laina1312/?action=view&current=EverythingBeautiful.jpg Wouldn't that be better for the cover?

I prefer the UK one. :) It's much nicer than the other one.

The first cover is exactly like the initial cover for Absolutely Maybe by Lisa Yee (go to Melissa Walker's blog and read the cover story). I guess it is a stock image haha.
