US Vs. UK: The Sky Is Everywhere Covers

US // UK

I'm not sure I have a favourite cover this week, I love each of them for different reasons. Both covers make the book look like a poignant read (which I believe it is, from reviews I've read), and I like both title fonts used.

The US one probably stands out slightly more due to the use of the red, though I really like the simple effect of the clouds on the UK one. I'd buy either... how about you?

I agree with you. Though I alraedy loved the US cover because of its simplicity and poignant colours, when I look at the UK one, I think I might even like that more! Love the font, the blue sky+clouds, the freedom and limitness it suggests. Great covers!

I like the UK one much better. For some reason the US one has never grabbed me.

I don't care! I want them both! So pretty, my precioussss.

Uhm, no, they are both lovely. I like the red of the heart, but then I do like the floaty cloads too...floaty clouds wins.

I like them both but I actually love the wispy writing on the cover of the proof more than these two!

Laura said...

I like both of them! And honestly, the book is fantastic!

I prefer the UK one. I actually dislike the US one because it's a YA and that cover does not shout YA. :(

The US cover is great! I like that there is a big heart on it.

The UK one seems a little "blah" to me. I prefer the US cover with the red. Def stands out more.

I prefer the UK cover. Very cute and sweet.

Hey, I love the UK one today! I think it conveys emotion without over doing it. :-)

Sasha said...

I love the US one. It looks so different and very well designed! :)

Sara said...

For some reason, I've never really liked the US cover. I love the UK cover though :D

I like them both but I think I like the UK one just that little bit more:)

UK cover totally pwns the US cover hands down. If they went head to head in a boxing ring, the US would be KO"d in the first round. I just love how ethereal the UK cover is and I think that having the title in font that looks like wispy clouds was a good call. UK baby!

Clover said...

I'd probably buy either book, but I think I prefer the UK one!

Bookworm said...

US, hands down, but the UK one is beautiful, too!

UK, I have never liked the US one for that book.

Kate Evangelista said...

This time around, I'd have to say that I'm not liking any of the covers.

UK, definitely UK! =D

I'm really not big on either covers, but I do like the US a bit better. I like how it stands out with the red.

Sarah said...

I actually don't really like either of those covers. They just don't do anything for me I guess.

Lauren said...

I actually really like both of these, but the US one edges it for me. I love that red heart!

I prefer the UK, Not sure why but the US just doesn't grab me.

I prefer the UK. I wrote a column last summer called Judge a Book by it's Cover.
