US Vs. UK: The Truth About Forever Covers

US // UK

As much as I love the UK cover, I think I prefer the US one more. I like the simple image of the flower, and the light colours. The UK one is clever though, as it has a lot of little pictures and words within the heart, and all of them link to the story.

I think it's amazing how different covers can be, and these two couldn't be more opposite if they tried. Which would catch your eye?

I prefer the UK one - I just love that illustration. Although, I have to admit that it looks more like teen fiction, and the US cover could be a book for adults. I do like covers that don't talk down to their audience. Hmm. OK, now I'm not sure! :)

No, I still think I'm more drawn to the UK cover.

I definitely prefer the UK cover. It's so pretty! (I know, shallow!)

Both are nice and so different from each other, but I am more drawn to the US cover.

I prefer the US version of Sarah's covers but the ones from the UK are very cute and unique.

I'm gonna be biased and say that I like the US one. I love the simplicity of it. Although I'm a big fan of the Sarah Dessen novels in the UK having the same type of covers. :)

I'll go for US cover. There's something soft and nostalgic about it just like the book itself. The UK one is really beautiful though. I want the whole SD collection.

I love the US cover. I really don't like the Sarah Dessen covers for the UK.

I love the UK cover for this one. It's awesome!!

Hmm.. this is a bit of a tough one. I really do love the illustration for the UK one, but I think I still prefer the US cover. I like that the colors are softer and that it's more simple. The UK is still pretty in its own right though. :)

I haven't picked up a SD novel. I know I'm terrible. However I always love her covers. I'm definitely liking the US version better.

Jenna said...

I like the U.S. cover better.

I prefer the US one this time. The flower is such a striking image. Also, I think I mentioned in my review of this, but I don't like the persepctive of the hand on the UK one. Or the shape actually. The more I look at it, the more wrong it seems

Both are super cute! But the US is more serious....I don't know, I haven't read the book. If it's a fun book, than I'd go for the UK.

I'd definitely say the US cover. The UK cover is really pretty, but it's too busy. The US cover is sweet, simple, and altogether perfect to me. :)

Both are really neat but I'd have to go with the US one since it's less busy too.

I love the US one too much to choose the UK one. I LOVED The Truth About Forever.

I like the US one, it's simpler and elegant. :)

the UK one is weird! it doesnt follow the book at all! the US one kinda shows what the book is about in a weird (but awesome) way! US all the way!
