US vs. UK: Dreams of Gods and Monsters Covers

Right through this trilogy I've always preferred the US covers. Our UK ones are nice, of course, but they seem more aimed at an adult audience rather than YA. I know these books cross over into both age ranges, but personally I like the YA approach better. They stand out more, don't you think? Or is it just me?

With Dreams of Gods and Monsters, the conclusion to the trilogy, both publishers seem to have gone all out. The US cover is beautiful with its gold and stand-out font, while the UK cover is more subtle and pretty. I can say that the UK edition is really lovely in real life, all shiny and eye-catching, but I've never seen the US editions so can't comment on those.

What do you think?

I think the US covers are stunning. I want them on my shelves.
