US Vs. UK: Wake Covers

US // UK

When I first saw the new UK cover for Wake, I really didn't like it. Maybe it's because I've stared at the US one so much, or because the style is so different - who knows? However, after looking at this one for a couple of weeks, it has definitely grown on me. The yellow is eye-catching, and the illustrations set it aside from the rest of the YA covers out there.

My favourite of the two is still the US one, because it's kind of haunting, just like the book. I can't wait for it to be released over here, it seems to have taken forever!

I was a bittle confused over the yellow one too, but it has definately grown on me. My Wake and Fade come on Monday and I can't wait to get started on them : ) great post, once again!

I much prefer the US one, too. It would catch my attention much more easily than the UK one.

I like the US way more but with the book The Hollow by Jessica Verday I so prefer the UK one! Both are really pretty but I love the UK cover!

The illustration on the UK one is really cool, but the US ones have more atmosphere.

I think the UK one is very UK-ish (!) with its cartoon style. I like the picture of the girl.

The US cover looks 'older', and definitely more haunting.

I love love love the UK cover. I always pick the underdog, it seems. I've almost always preferred illustrated cover. I wonder why...

I am not crazy about the UK cover. It is just too busy for me. But I love the US one. It is very simple and to the point.

I agree with you. While I like the UK one, I prefer the simple design of the US cover. :)

I think the UK version looks too complicated and less mysterious. US one this time ^^

I love the UK one - both are nice though

I like the UK one. But the US one has branded the series. It works. :)

US all the way! I love Wake and Fade and the cover for the US one fits the books much better.

I'm not a huge fan of the UK cover :( Maybe it's because I've stared on the US cover for so long like you said >.<

The UK cover is interesting, but it gives a totally different impression of the book. I don't know if I would pick it up. The US version is haunting.

I actually really like the UK cover. I think the US one looks more like I'd expect the story to be, but then I haven't read it yet so what do I know?! I like the originality of the the UK one.

I want to read that said...

I prefer the US one - it just catches my eye more

I think the U.S. cover totally kicks ass. lol

Bookworm said...

The US one is totally cooler. It really grabs my attention. The UK cover just looks so light and fluffy, sort of.

The UK one is certainly different and interesting but I still prefer the US one.
