US Vs. UK: Ash Covers

US // UK

The UK cover is my favourite here, hands down. It's so magical and pretty, and even nicer in person -- it's all shiny and reflective. I do like the US cover, but I think it looks too dark. The title font is lovely though, and I would be intrigued if I saw it in a bookshop.

Well done to Hodder UK for this cover, it's one of my top covers of 2010 so far!

I just looove the UK cover. It's so magical and sweet. I too think the US cover is good but in a different way. UK cover has a better appeal :)

I want to be a little different so I'll say US LOL ;)

I love these covers - I prefer the US one, although I've seen the UK one in Foyles. In fact, I had to tell them to move it from the 8-12 section as it's a bit grown up for the very young folk!

I actually have the hardcover at home and really do not to get stuck into reading it.

I love both of them, but I'm going to have to go with the US cover. But, I haven't read the book, or even seen it in real life, so that could change my opinion. :)

It's so interesting that different countries have different covers.

I love the UK cover! I also like the US cover but not as much as the UK cover.

I agree! The UK cover is stunning.

I'm with you. I LOVE the UK cover. The US one is so depressing. I haven't read this so the cover may fit but I probably wouldn't pick it up unless I was in an emo mood. :(

The UK cover is pretty but the US cover fits the story better, I think.

Sasha said...

I think the US one makes more of a statement but the UK one is definitely an eye catcher. I think I like the US more x

Maria the Bookworm said...

I like the US version better. The UK cover looks like a look alike of the cover for Behind Every Illusion, not very original. However, they are both pretty :)

Alessandra said...

I prefer the US version - it looks more grown-up to me.

I love the UK cover!

STACKGirl Stacy said...

I think I like the US cover more, seems a bit more mature.

UK - hands down:)

Bookalicious Ramblings said...

Both covers are gorgeous, but I prefer the UK one too - it's simply stunning!

dkm1981 said...

Ooh definitely the UK one. I'mprobably biased, but it just looks so much more magical!

Jill of The O.W.L. said...

UK all the way! Althought the US one is pretty :)

Book Monster said...

Hands down UK!! I see the US one in stores and each time I pick it up, I put it down!!

Allie said...

I love the color on the UK cover, but I also kind of like the US cover too!

UK gets my vote!

I really like the UK cover it's very eyecatching and it stands clear around the other Supernatural books around at the moment, as they all have the same style of black and one primary colour for the title. I'm glad Hodder have stepped away from the traditional colours.

Hi Jenny

by Facebook, I'm just hear to your blog. The cover of the book "Ash" looks much better the UK than from Germany :-) I love the UK and absolutely want to vacation there.

I hope you can read my English is good :-)

Greetings
