UK vs US Book Covers #2

So back in August of last year, I decided to compare the UK and US covers of some books. It got a pretty good response so I thought that I would return the feature and compare some more considering a lot more books have been released since then. So let's get started...

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard 

         UK                                           vs                                    US

Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1)Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1)


I would like to say that I have not read this book so I am judging them based on if I like the cover or not. To me the UK cover is not very appealing it is just I don't know to basic for my liking although I do like the typography better than the US cover. I love the US cover it is so much more eye-catching and it looks a lot more like a fantasy book compared to the UK one. Also the girl on the cover looks like a complete badass. 

Winner: US

Night Owls by Jenn Bennett

       UK                                  vs                                US


Night Owls                                     The Anatomical Shape of a Heart
                                                                                           
So I have read this book and I know which one represents the book better. The UK one is just so good in comparison to what the book is like. Everything from the gold paint to the gold bus at the bottom to the typography, I love this cover. I just think the US cover is quite simple and the typography is just not that nice. 

Winner: UK                                            

My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga 

        UK                                     vs                                        US

My Heart and Other Black Holes                                                                                     My Heart and Other Black Holes

I have also not read this book so again I am going to base it on the cover only. This one is actually quite hard as I do like both of them. The typography on both is really pretty and they have good quality. I always like a blue contemporary however I really enjoy the simple design of the US cover. 

Winner: A Tie 

The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

         UK                              vs                                      US 

The Rest of Us Just Live Here                                                                          The Rest of Us Just Live Here

I again have read this book and I do love both covers. I really like the US cover as you can really feel the chosen one theme running throughout it and it glows in the dark. However the typography and just the amazingness of the UK cover wins me over. 

Winner: UK

Faceless by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

      UK                                            vs                             US 

Faceless                                                                         Faceless

Both these book covers are powerful in trying to convey the message of this book and are both powerful in that way. I like the realist elements on the US cover and I like the simple nature of UK cover. I especially like the simple nature of the UK cover so...

Winner: A Tie

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
