US vs. UK Book Covers #1

Hello everyone! I am so excited for today’s post because if your a true book lover like me, we can all love a good book cover. If your really a true book lover, you can also get frustrated at the amount of book covers that aren’t as easily available to you. I live in the US, so UK book covers aren’t available to me, I would have to order it specially online. Today I wanted to go through some covers of books and see whether their covers are better in the US edition, or the UK edition. Let’s get into it!

Caraval – Stephanie Garber

Of course I wanted to start off with one of my favorite series of all time, Caraval. I much prefer the US editions. I like the blue mixed with the red, in person it’s truly very gorgeous. The UK has that nice clean look which I do like, but I’m not feeling the gold. Plus the lettering on the US edition is beautiful.

Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor

So actually, I really love the UK edition of this book. It’s simple, but it’s gorgeous and I can actually read the title. On the US edition it’s kind of hard to read, or is it just me? Definitely would vote for the UK edition on this one.

Words In Deep Blue – Cath Crowley

US on the left, UK on the right. I LOVE the US version, and I mean, the UK version isn’t bad, it’s just boring. The US version is hands down the best.

Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell

So, this one if kind of a hard one to pick for. If I absolutely had to pick? I’d pick the US edition. I don’t hate the UK edition, I just love the simplistic cover that the US one has. I just think the UK edition is gross in color.

What do you guys think of my picks? Any you disagree with? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Love your picks!!! I actually own the UK version of Caraval and in real life it’s really cute because it like shines and it’s hilariously small, the smallest book I’ve ever read haha! But I’d love to have the US version as well! I also really would love to have the UK version of Strange the Dreamer, I have neither version, mine is kind of boring haha… and I also agree with the US version of Words in Deep Blue, I think I put that novel on my TBR list simply because the cover is gorgeous hahaha

  2. Alrighty … my favourites are …

    1. Caraval – Stephanie Garber = UK!
    2. Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor = US!
    3. Words In Deep Blue – Cath Crowley = the one with the bird one it
    4. Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell = TIE! I love them both for different reasons.

    Awesome post! I love seeing the differences and seeing peoples opinions!


  3. I always feel like standard cover pictures never do the UK cover of Caraval any justice… it’s a lot more beautiful that pictures make it out to be… plus I’m slightly bias cause I have the Fairyloot edition with the special design on the inner cover 😂😂 minus Caraval I agree with your choices though!
