US Vs. UK: The Maze Runner Covers

US // UK

Chicken House are publishing The Maze Runner in the UK in August,and have just released the cover. I love it! I do like the US cover too, but I think the UK one makes it look more exciting, and I like the 'Remember. Survive. Run.' tagline.

I love the contrast between these covers. Light/dark, intrigue/danger... it's interesting to see how they're being marketed differently. I can't wait to read it!

UK is much more attractive than US cover.

The UK cover gives a thriller feel to it, more than the US one. I love the idea of the letters.

Pewter Wolf said...

Uk cover for me! Looks more thrilling...

Ladybug said...

I like them both but there is just something about the UK cover that is more attractive!

Michelle said...

UK for sure. I've never been a fan of the US cover at all. And like people have said, the UK cover looks a lot more thrilling which I agree with. :)

Nina said...

The UK one looks way better.

May said...

Definitely the UK cover. I might just wait till it's released and pick one up!

The UK is like the hot cooler brother, though they are both gorgeous, the hot brother all ways wins out in the end *coughs* Adam *coughs*

I had no idea that it was even being published over here! I'm excited! But, back on topic, UK for me.

Ooh, I love the UK cover!

I like the UK cover tons better. It's epic. The other one looks a bit to soft compared to the story line. =/

Not to mention the lettering is ten times better on the UK cover.

Alessandra said...

Love the lettering on the UK cover!

I Heart Monster said...

Yeah, love the UK one. I wasn't a fan of the US one.

Andrea said...

I like the UK one better.

Steph Su said...

Oh whoa! The first time I've seen the UK cover, and I love it! I think it fits the tone of the book so much more. Well done, well done!

Nikki @ Bookizzle said...

Hmm, they each have details I like about them but I honestly don't prefer one over the other. I guess that makes me Switzerland, haha.

Jessica Kennedy said...

Nah, I like the US one.

Lauren said...

I like them both, but I have a US copy and I'm kind of attached to it. It really reminds me of the videogame Ico, which I love. I have a feeling I might like the UK cover better when I see a real live copy though.

Bookworm said...

UK. What is the blurry green stuff on the cover of the US one? It's totally unidentifiable...

pussreboots said...

I prefer the U.S. It's a good depiction of the maze walls near the Glade.

Borostyán said...

The UK cover. But I must admit, that the original art of the US cover is really cool. http://www.philipstraub.com/assets/illustrations/Themazerunner.jpg

Book Monster said...

Most certainly the U.S. I've seen this book in the stores and every time I see this cover, I stop and pick it up!!

Book Chick City said...

UK one for me, again. I always seem to be picking UK lately... but then we do rock out some wicked covers! :)

Ku said...

Well, I like the US one more.

Becky said...

I'm late getting here as usual. I love the UK one. It appeals to me so much more. Sort of reminds me of Gone with the contrast between black and colour. I'm looking forward to the UK release. I don't like the US one at all.

Flo said...

US cover for me, definitely!

YA Vampire Books said...

I prefer the UK cover. I love the contrast between the black and the golden letters!

I Want To Read That said...

UK! I'm really looking forward to this one:)

Lea said...

I really love the UK one, it's so much better,

Manda (Manda's Movements) said...

I agree with the majority of people here liking the UK cover. It looks quite scary! Just ordered the US cover one though and I can't wait to read it too!
