US // UK
I've never read one of Kelley Armstrong's YA books, though I've always liked the covers. I'm looking forward to reading The Gathering but, and apologies to Atom for this, I really don't like the UK cover. It's ever so slightly better in person, but it's not for me at all. In fact, I don't think I'd even look twice at it on a shelf. It looks so disjointed and weird - what's going on with it? I like the idea of an image within an image, though I don't think it's worked here.
I don't overly love the US cover either, though I'd go for it over ours in a heartbeat. I like the colouring and the angle of the model's pose, plus the placement of the title and author name is spot on. I think it'll be a great read, and that's what's most important at the end of the day.
What do you guys think? Am I alone in my UK cover puzzlement?
