Top Ten Tuesday – UK/US Cover Differences #TopTenTuesday #Reading #Books #CoverArt #Alternatives

Hello everyone and welcome to another #TopTenTuesday here on Always Trust In Books. I am focusing on cover art this week and I have decided to do a little kind of Friday Face-Off but with ten different options. There is plenty of gorgeous and captivating artwork to be celebrated so I have decided to do so. I hope you enjoy and feel free to let me know what you prefer down in the comments. I am going to share both the UK and US versions of ten books and share my favourite choice beneath them. If you disagree then tell me why!

The US version wins here. That tree just captures the eye really well.

One Way by S. J. Morden

This was a tough one. I am going to draw this one (pun intended).

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Have to go with the UK on this one. So good!

Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Tough one! I am going to go with the US edition as it is really cool!

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

UK

US

I think the US cover is far more eye-catching than the UK version (I am on fire with the puns today).

How To Stop Time by Matt Haig

UK

.275

US

.274

The UK edition is fantastic so that one wins this time around!

If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio

UK

.273

US

.272

I am not a huge fan of dead birds and skulls are pretty cool so the US wins this round.

Lost Boy by Christina Henry

UK

.271

US

US wins this one but it was a close call. I like the flash art style of US cover.

Wychwood by George Mann

UK

The US wins the final round too. That skeleton crow is superb. I want a copy for my bookshelf.

Thanks for popping by to check out my latest Top Ten list. Cover art is something I love to celebrate as much as possible and I reckon I did well here. If you have any particular favourites that didn’t make the list then please let me know as there may be another edition of cover differences in the future. These Top Ten lists are a lot of fun and I look forward to putting together another one very soon. Comment if you enjoyed the post and I will be back soon with plenty more bookish goodness.

  1. Fun post! Some of the covers were beautiful~ I liked the UK version of One Way, largely due to the words on it. I wouldn’t have picked up the book if I’d seen the US one. Looks like you gotta judge a book by its cover sometimes 😜

  2. Ooo… Some tough choices! I found myself leaning towards the US version of a lot of them except “Ravencry” and “Lost Boy” definitely UK for me. “How to stop Time” looks so good both ways I’d have to get both of them!! Lol!
