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

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

Considering this keeps gaining attention, I just wanted to clarify that I no longer support J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. I'm not sure why people are clicking on this but, the views in this post do not reflect my current views and I only posted it on my blog so that it could be shared as not many people came to the event when it first happened.  So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you

6 Year Blog Anniversary

Every year I forget when my blog anniversary is even after six years! I know that it is in June but it is today the 15th of June!  A lot has happened in six years when I started this blog. Before my first blog post, I was going to university later that summer. Now I have a BA and MA degree! And I have tracked my progress all the way. It's a bit emotional to think about it!  I am so grateful were my blog. I enjoy the content that I make and in a year where I have basically stopped interacting with a lot of social media but my views are higher than ever. They have tripled in a year! I think this might because I have linked my blog on my job application and CVs so if you are a recruiter, Hi!  In other news, I have loved seeing the change in my content and hopefully see my writing progress and I hope that this continues. Since my first year, I hoped to track the changes in my blogging life and I love to see them. So let's get started...   Q1) Favourite Book Frankenstein by Mary She
