US vs. UK: Rose Under Fire Covers


I haven't read this book yet (or Code Name Verity! I know, I know.) but I'm quite sure I'll love it. It's waiting on my bookcase, staring at me every now and then. I love anything WWII related, so I'm looking forward to getting to these. I also like both of these covers and I'm finding it difficult to choose a favourite. The US cover might just sneak a win here, but only because I'm not keen on half the UK cover being taken up with a model.

I prefer the UK's title placement and font, as well as the author name being at the top of the book, like a banner. The US image is much better, though, and would attract my attention more than the better designed UK one. I'm intrigued to find out what Rose Under Fire is all about and to see how the covers relate to the story - can't wait!

Which would you go for?

I don't think I really have a favourite here, although I do love the scarf tied to the gate on the US cover. I bought Rose Under Fire a while ago and for some reason still haven't got round to it, but I LOVED Code Name Verity.

I actually don;t like the US cover of this book. I'd walk straight past it in a bookshop; it wouldn;t appeal to me at all.

UK Cover. I don't like the US one at all.
