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

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
