Ages ago I posted a couple of these UK vs US book cover posts, and I had a flashback to them the other day. I always really enjoyed doing these posts, so I thought I would take a look at some of my TBR books to see how the covers for them differ across the pond!
I’ve picked my own favourite, but then I also did a poll on my Instagram story for each one, so there is an Instagram winner too!
(UK covers on the left, US on the right)
I do actually really love both of these covers. Even though I’m not a huge fan of the shade blue, I think these look really beautiful. I love the nature aspect of the UK cover but the texture of the branches of the tree makes my skin crawl a little bit – but maybe that’s the point? I think the US cover correlates with the title more! What I prefer: US
Instagram results: 72% (128) UK v 28% (50) US
I really love both the covers for this book and it’s been really difficult to pick which I prefer. I like the moodiness of the UK cover but I like how the US cover looks like an old school nature book illustration more. What I prefer: US
Instagram results: 49% (86) UK v 51% (88) US
These two covers are exceptionally similar, however so different at the same time! I really love the colours on the US cover as those cold tones are my favourites, however there is something about the UK cover that grabs my attention better. What I prefer: UK
Instagram results: 74% (134) UK v 26% (47) US
I do love simple book covers but I think the UK cover is the clear winner for? It’s seriously beautiful! What I prefer: UK
Instagram results: 64% (115) UK v 36% (64) US
Again these ones are quite similar but the UK cover has a bit more decoration to it and a lack of a swan head. I think the weirdly bent swan neck is kind of offputting to be honesy. What I prefer: UK
Instagram results: 78% (142) UK v 22% (41) US
The Instagram polls were very positive towards the UK covers, the only US winner won by just 2%. I was a little more on the fence with 2 votes for US covers and 3 for UK ones.
To be honest, all the cover featured in this post are lovely, some of the choices were tough! Which covers do you prefer?
