US Vs. UK: Blue Bloods Covers

US // UK

This is an easy choice for me this week: I much prefer the UK cover. It's lovely in person, and the raised bite marks seem to work better on that one that they do on the US cover.

I know both covers are along the same lines, showing the vampire/rich teenage side of the story, but the UK just has something extra. Maybe it's the lovely title font or the vibrant image. I love it!

I agree the UK one is definitely better x

I own bot covers but I much prfer the Uk covers. The Us ones are just gross.

Keren David said...

Urgh...they both make me feel ill!

SusanKMann said...

I love the UK one.

Shweta said...

UK cover has more appeal. Much better than US cover

Jo said...

I much prefer the UK cover, because of the angle of the image. The US cover just looks odd, with her head straight back. The bitten always seem to turn to the side in the books I read, not look up. The UK cover seems more natural.

Kate said...

I definitely prefer the UK cover!

ParaJunkee said...

I like the pearls in the UK cover.

Michelle said...

UK for sure

AtenRa said...

I own the US ones,even though I ordered them from a UK store(go figure) but I can't say I love either of them.The embossed fang marks are a plus but otherwise...meh!

PolishOutlander said...

Definitely the UK cover! I like the angle of the neck as well.

I'll be the voice of dissent and say US-- I like the city outline at the bottom

Cassandra said...

I like the UK cover. There's something weird and kind of sickening about the purplish/blue tint to the skin on the US cover.

Jami said...

The UK one has more appeal for me. I would be more likely to pick that one up.

I prefer the UK one, it's softer. I really like the necklace the model is wearing too!

Katherine Langrish said...

Yes, agree with the majority here. Not sure about the puncture marks at all, mind you, but at least the UK cover suggests the girl may still be alive and having fun. Although does being bitten by a vampire extend the length of one's neck?

Lea said...

Definitely the UK cover. It just looks sooo much better, and it's not all off-color like the US one.

Andrea said...

I agree. UK is better.

Becky said...

UK! All the way! I need to get myself a copy of this asap!

Ashley said...

Hmm. That's tough. They both look good, but I agree, the UK does have something a little more!

Silvia said...

The UK cover is cool but I miss the city in the bottom as every book in the series has one differnt city in the cover. I also feel that the UK one is too illuminated.
So I would go for the US one.

Carmen said...

The US cover looks like it's been left in the shop window to long and has sun fade. Definitely prefer the UK one.

Cassandra said...

I forgot when I posted my comment about the covers to tell you that you have an award here.

I Want To Read That said...

Yep - definately UK:)

Marianna said...

The UK cover is just perfect...even if the pearls look a bit...mmmm, plastic?

Book Chick City said...

UK all the way. I think the over all image is better and I love the font too!

Ladybug said...

I agree with 99 % of the rest of the commenter's LOL It's just something about the use of colors I don't like with the US one.

MichieBee said...

I much prefer the UK cover here. I can't stand that the US cover's picture is out of focus. It just looks bleh, and the silhouetted skyscrapers on the bottom doesn't really do it for me either. The vibrant colors and sharp picture of the UK is absolutely gorgeous though. :))

Book Monster said...

Sadly I'm going with USA, since it was what attracted me to the series.

YA Vampire Books said...

Definitely UK cover for me. The colors are nicer, and the girl's too pale (even though she is a vampire)at the US cover.

Sab H. said...

I like the UK better too but I have to say the city's shadow at the bottom of each US book rocks too! ;D

Bookworm said...

The UK is much prettier and more elegant, but I really like the city skyline at the bottom of the US edition...

YellowBanana said...

Yeah I prefer the UK one too. Already have the U.S edition though unfortunately :(
