US Vs. UK: Ink Exchange Covers

US // UK

I really like both of these. They're so different, but I can't choose between them. I like the simplicity of the US covers for this series, though I also like the imagery on the original UK ones. The UK covers have since been changed to the US ones, and they seem to be selling better. Maybe our old covers were too busy and distracting?

I must say I much, much prefer the US ones and I am glad they replaced the UK ones. I am heavily influenced by covers and I would never have picked up this series with the first set of covers!! I have just finished Wicked Lovely and hoping to move on to ink Exchange soon but I have a lot of things to read at the moment!!!!

Oooh, I like both. I have the US cover. At a glance, it would be the US cover. But when I start looking at the UK cover, it really intrigues me.

I love both too. I also wouldn't be able to choose between the two they're just so pretty.

I prefer the US ones although I wish ours weren't replaced for continuity's sake. I like my books to match!

I prefre the US coveres! I have the original UK ones, and if it wasn't for the bookclub I was in at the time, I would never have picked Wicked Lovely up because of the cover and well...faeries. The faeries things has changed, but I don't like the cover, or this cover. US is much better!

I like the US better, probably because of the colors, although the UK one really is interesting.

I prefer the US covers. The UK ones are cool looking too, but I find them a little too busy and distracting.

Yikes--I really dislike the UK one! It's just too busy and...weird. US is enchanting and gorgeous, though! Too bad about the UK. ):

I think the UK ones are pretty (I especially liked the Wicked Lovely one) but you're right, it IS a bit too distracting, with so many elements and colors going on. I'm glad they're getting better sales now though!

I like the US cover better, though it would've been MUCH better if it was Irial on the cover. LOL.

I like the UK cover personally, but like as a poster or something, not so much a book cover. Too busy. Gorgeous, though.

US!!!! AHHHHH! they are so pretty! i have actually never seen the Uk ones in person, they never sold them in Ireland... :S but based on these pictures i love the US one. They look so beautifful, but mysterious and edgy at the same time! Hard to do but it has been managed in this cover. They protray the books perfectly!
