US Vs. UK: Immortal Beloved Covers

US // UK

Once again I'm being indecisive - I like both covers. I like the flowers around our UK one, but much prefer the title font and colouring on the US one (though ours has a really lovely bright finish to it, and the flowers really stand out! I haven't seen the US finished copy though... is it shiny?). I do love the UK tagline though. I'm a sucker for those!

The UK cover seems like your typical gothic paranormal romance, which isn't a bad thing at all. I happen to love black covers! The US cover makes me think of magic and fire, which I'm sure doesn't actually have anything to do with the book - I'm not sure though as I haven't read it yet! I think the US one is actually slightly more eye-catching, thanks to those bright colours.

So who gets your vote this week? US or UK? I'm afraid I'm on the fence!

Andrew said...

Same here! I prefer the UK cover - it's gothic and creepy! :D

Emma said...

UK for me. I keep trying to have a look at the US one but my eye gets drawn back to the UK one.

Uk

Nita said...

The UK, naturally. I think the US is awful. :P

I prefer the UK cover. I love the flower-frame and the tunnel of trees. It's magical! Looks scary, and I do prefer scary :D I don't like the girl on the US one.. it doesn't work quite that well as the UK cover. What I do like on ther US copy is where the author's name is placed, I don't know why, I just like it.

I like the background of the US one, but the title stuff sort of ruins it for me. If they had done that different, I'd choose that one, but they didn't, so I'm partial to the UK.

I'll be odd one out and go for the US ;). I love the colours and the font of the title, plus the little design around it is really cool. Just more eye-catching in my opinion, though the UK one is very pretty too.

I definitely prefer the UK cover.

UK ALL THE WAY!!! Love it tons. I was never impressed with the US one.

Jessi E. (The Elliott Review) said...

I love both of them, leaning slightly more toward the UK version. However, I like the way the bright colors of the US just kind of remind me of ages and ages of immortality. I loved this book, and it's cool to see a new cover.

Nina said...

Uk and US, tough choice. US, just for the colours.

The UK one ! The US cover is strange

Sandy said...

I pick UK this time. I love everything about it. That is a book I would definitely pick up if I came across it in the bookstore.

Becky said...

Ah, I am a bit of a fence sitter. My finished copy of the UK version arrived today. It feels velvety which is lush! But the US one ties in more with the story so yeah ... I love them both and am now the proud owner of three copies. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

I agree with pretty much everything you said: I love the flowers, and while the black/white/red color scheme of covers might be a little overdone in the paranormal genre, I still prefer it over the US color scheme. However, I love the title font and adornments around the US cover a lot more than the UK one.

So I guess it would be a tie for me, with a slight advantage to the UK cover. :)

The US' is shiny!

But my, my, I do like that UK one. :)

mary kate said...

I love the UK one much more than the US one. :D

I don't know why, but for me it's the US. It might be that the colours are nice, or the white against the the unfocused oranges, or it could be that the UK one looks like the shiver cover and all you see at the moment are black white and red covers. (not that i don't love those colours.... *TWILIGHT!*)

Lauren said...

If I'd seen this 24 hours ago, I'd have opted for the US cover. But now my finished copy of the UK version has arrived, and it's just lovely. Even my non-book-obsessed other half exclaimed over it. UK this time. :D

Aik said...

I prefer the UK version. It seems dark and mysterious.

Alice Dwyer said...

The UK version I think. It is very haunting.

Jesse Owen said...

The UK cover for me too (I also love the feel of UK hard cover one) :D

I Want To Read That said...

Uk - I like the colours of the US one but not the face. And the UK one feels all soft!

crudola, I like them both and can't decide.

Clover said...

UK FOR SURE. I'm not keen on the US cover at all.
