US Vs UK: Generation Dead Covers

US // UK

This is one of those rare weeks where I can't choose between covers. I love them both!

The UK one looks like it's inspired by Mrs Meyer's vampire book, though I can get over it because it's different enough. And it's red, which automatically equals points, because it's my favourite colour. As for the US cover, it's just plain cool! A creepy, zombie cheerleader staring at you... surely that would be enough to at least pique your interest?!

Which do you prefer?

I like the US cover better. It's so funky.

The US one is a bit less abstract, I'd have a better idea of what I was getting with that one. And I like the title font better.

No contest for me. I like the UK one better by miles. And the same goes for the UK Kiss of Life cover. They're gorgeous! And they feels so smooth, and the colours are so deep... Yep. UK for me.

I've been dying for you to do this one! (In a non-zombie kind of way. ;) )

I like them both. They're polar opposites, but they are both really cool.

I LOVE the UK version. I'm NOT a fan of the US version....why I wasn't interested in the book. :*(

I like both of these too (really want to read this one btw) but I have to go with the US cover in the end.

I think I prefer the US cover. I usually like simple covers better, but the UK one is almost an eye-sore for me. The red is too bright and I don't like how it contrasts with the black rose. The US cover is much more pleasing to the eye and just looks kind of cooler in my opinion. :)

But I can't help but love the US cover!

i LOVE the UK version!!!

I tink I prefer the UK version. The US cover seems a little gimicky, where as the colours for the UK cover make you want to know more. A Black rose? What? It's a lot more noticable. Where as a cheerleader? Not interested.

I actually like the UK cover better. Something about the US one makes me cringe.

VioletReads said...

I love the UK cover, but I think the US version does a better job of giving a sense of what the book is like - it has more personality, somehow. And I think it's really interesting that the author's name (Dan vs. Daniel) is different.

The US cover grabs my attention, but the UK cover looks a little classier. Browsing through a book shelf, I would probably pick up the US cover just to see what it was about, but there is a good chance I would ignore the UK cover. Although, I would feel a little embarrassed to be seen reading something with a zombie cheerleader on it in public.

Bookworm said...

US for me! The UK is pretty and classy, but really serious-looking. And I like the US colors more!

Danielle said...

I like both, but favor the U.S. cover!

popjunkii said...

Definitely the US cover. I am sick of all the Twilight-esque book covers that are coming out.

Ginger said...

I have to agree with popjunkii - there are way to many covers now with just flowers on a contrasting background. They usually give no insight to the story and are actually kinda boring. For this particular book though, the cheerleader makes no since either because the main character is a goth. In a way the black rose is more gothy, but really I don't feel that either captures the plot every well.

right on ginger . if it was a picture of a goth on the front itt would be way better
