US Vs. UK: If I Stay Covers

US // UK

I really like both these covers, though if I had to choose, I'd buy the US one - I like the simplicity and what it's symbolizing. Saying that, I also like the UK one, because I think it represents the story well in a more literal sense. I also like the inclusion of a tagline of sorts: What would you do if you had to choose?

I think both covers will appeal to teenagers and adults, which is good for crossover sales. It's an amazing book, and I can't wait until it's officially released over here, then I can make lots of people buy it!

I think I prefer the US one. Do you knwo if it's released in hardback first over here?

I think I prefer the simplicity of the US one, too.

Yeah, both are really nice and will appeal to both teens and adults (which is sweet!), but I'd also go with the US.

I have to go US also, it's stark yet pretty.

Lenore said...

US for sure. It works much better on a symbolic level (only one bloom left on the family tree).

I love both of them because anything blue rocks. The UK one did a great job at portraying the story but if I have a chance I'll buy both, for real.

I really love the UK one, but the US one is my favorite.

Wow, I love them both too! If I absolutely had to choose though, I would also pick the US cover. I prefer the simplicity of it. The UK cover really is beautiful too though..

I think the US one would work better as a paperback than a hardcover, I don't know why though. I love the UK one too.

Wow, I'm alone in preferring the UK. I think it has a nice mood.

Bookworm said...

Definitely US. The UK is just kind of....blah/depressing!

I like both too but I agree with you. The US is less busy and more eye-catching.

Khy said...

I like them both, but I think I'll take the US one too. :D

Melissa said...

I like them both, but since I haven't read the book I think I'll make a final decision after I finally do that, lol :-)

BTW, I have a little something for you at my blog, you can pick it up here.

One quick comment: Just by looking at the US picture, I wouldn't get it, but the cover is this marvelous texture, and really looks different (better) in person.
