US Vs. UK: Tempted (House of Night) Covers

US // UK

I really don't like the UK cover for Tempted. I much prefer the US one, as it has a much better image and cool HoN patterns throughout the whole jacket. I do prefer the UK title font, but I just don't think the girl looks right. Is it just me?

I prefer ours. I like the shiny patterns against the matte background and the title font.

I'm with S. I like the photo on the UK one more, too.

I like the UK cover..it looks more tempting :)

I loved the US cover, so I would have to see the UK in person to be sure, but at first glance, I like the US better.

I really do not like the UK cover. I do like the font, but that is about it.

US cover for the world : )

I only like the font on the UK one. Definitely like the US one better.

I like the UK cover more x

US gets my vote as UK is orange. But other than that, I think they're both pretty cool - though the UK title font is better!

I Want To Read That said...

Yep - I agree - the US is much better - I don't like the orange on the UK one. Also, doesn't the US jacket also fold out into a poster that's really pretty?

Becky said...

The UK one is hideous! Maybe because I've seen the US one so much but I really don't like the orange on the UK cover. Plus Zoey looks like a hussy...is that the point? I haven't read Hunted yet.

I love seeing this comparison! Cool! I think the UK cover's cool, but I do prefer the US one--it has a more iconic feel (I know in my mind what Zoey looks like--to me--and although the UK girl's pretty, she doesn't fit my vision). The US one doesn't give the option of not looking right (to me)because Zoey's face is obscured. :-) But that's only my opinion... Love seeing everyone else's. :D

Much prefer the US cover - I actually ordered that one specifically because I didnt like the UK one!

I like the US one more. I love bright/lime green and the glossy design on the covers. As for the UK, I don't particularily like covers with exposed midriff, unless their wearing like a swim suit or something. Great post!

I like the glossy look on the US cover and the lime green colour of the font. I don't like that you can see the model face in UK version. I like covers that obsure the faces of the models for some reason.

Kate said...

I definitely prefer the US cover. I like the background of the picture. The UK cover just doesn't grab my attention.

i was pissed off when
i had to buy the UK version
y can't the UK just use the
US covers their like soo much

Kaitlyn said...

I pick US :)
i've seen the UK cover (as the series has been released in the UK covers where i live) and the US cover looks much more appropriate..the boy holding the girl is supposed to be Stark and the girl is Zoey with I guess Heath or Erik in the background.
