US // UK
I'm rather fond of both of these covers, though the UK wins it for me. I've seen our cover in person and at first I wasn't too sure about it, but then I saw it again at the Hodder offices and I couldn't stop saying "Ooh" as I stared at it in wonder. It's like its shininess cast a spell on me! Now I really do love it, the whole design and effect it gives off; plus it has a pretty ace back cover quote from Patrick Rothfuss! Anyway, I digress.
The US cover seems nice enough (haven't seen this one in real life - is it shiny? Foiled?), but something about it just seems a little off. Not sure what exactly, though I think it could be the eye mask. Also I'm not overly keen on the title font - I think the UK font is much cooler. That could well be something to do with the UK book being a crossover title (shelved in the adult section!) and the US one being YA. I think both these covers suit the target audience perfectly, and I would actually be happy to own either.
So, how about you? Do you have a favourite, something you particularly like about either cover? Let me know!
