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

US // UK

This week I really like both covers, and I think they're the best US and UK House of Night images used so far. BUT. The US one wins by a mile! I'm a big fan of book covers featuring boys with wings (Hush, Hush, for example) and when I first saw Awakened I was glad I get the HoN US editions.

The UK cover is eye-catching too though, and as always it has the better title font. I'm not up to date with this series so can't be sure who the girl is, but I like her pose - she looks like she's waiting for something dramatic/bad to happen which, given that it's HoN, probably isn't far from the truth.

Which cover do you prefer?

I like the US one because of the wings, but I think the UK one is more eye-catching because of the prominent picture and the greenish shade!

I agree with Kelly. Love the US civet but the Uk one does stand out better

I'm with you US wins, not a big fan of the green.

I really like the model on the UK cover, but I personally find her pose really awkward for some reason. I'm also pretty partial to the green.

That being said, I think I'm going to have to go with the US cover. The blues and the hint of red are quite nice, and of course the model is quite nice too. :)

I like the UK cover,just because that ring that she wears is freaking awesome. :)

The green colour over the girl makes me think of Elphaba.

I like the US one better.

Personally, I like the US covers the best. I don't like the font on the UK cover.

I like the colours and text of the UK cover but I much prefer the image on the US cover.

I like the colour choice for the UK one, and I was wondering when theywere going to use yellow for the US one. They have used just about every colours accept for yellow and purple. I still love the US one the best, because it tells me who is in it. I don't want to spoil.

I like the colours and the layout best on the UK one as the colours and style of the lettering definately atrracts you more. However I think that the picture on the US one is stunning. I particuly like how it's all in very neutral tones, but the tattoos are in a bright scarlet I just think that looks fab! However I think there is too much detail on the wings on the right hand side which doesn't work as well.
I think that I prefer the UK one over all.
