U.S. vs. U.K. Book Covers

Hello lovelies! How are you? Today’s blog post is all about U.S. and U.K. book covers. I love books covers. Book covers are what initially draws you to that book; to pick it up and read the synopsis. Today I will be comparing U.S. book covers to U.K. book covers to see which one I like better and which one best represents the story better. Please leave me a comment down below letting me know if you typically like U.S. or U.K. covers better. Hope you have a great day. 


I would have to pick the U.S. Edition. I just love the bright red background, the silhouette of the man and the bones. It’s so striking. Plus it represents the story more. 

A Long Way To A Small Angry Planet 

I would have to pick the U.S. cover. I love the galaxy sky in the background.    The U.K. cover just looks plain to me. Nothing exciting. 


I 1000% love the U.K. cover more in this one. I love the colours and that the outline of the river makes up two silhouettes. 

On The Come up 

I absolutely love the cover of the U.S. book. I love the artwork. The cover matches the book. The U.K. cover just has a girl on the cover. 

Waking Gods 

The U.S. cover is by far my favourite. I love the galaxy design and the yellows. The U.K. cover just has a face on it. 

I am the Messenger

For this book I prefer the U.K. cover to the U.S. one. I love how on the cover of the U.K. one it has a playing card on it which is an essential part of the story. I also like the typography more on it as well. 

Big Little Lies

I love the striking image of the lollipop on the U.S. cover. The colours and the typography all tie up this cover for me. 

Under Rose Tainted Skies 

The U.S. cover is absolutely gorgeous. I love the water colours. 

The Queen of the Tearling

The U.K. cover of the Queen of the Tearling is my favourite. I love how the crown is a trap and that it is on a pillow ready to bed presented. I feel like the U.S. cover is boring. It just has a photograph of a castle on it. 

The Serpent King 

I love the cover of the U.S. book. I don’t normally like people on book cover, however I think this one does it really well. I am also like the typography. I love how it looks like snake skin and how it is falling off.
