Around The World in Book Covers Russian vs British Edition

I don't do this feature often enough but I thought it would be fun to do it today :)

Which one do you like the most? My favorite is still UK cover.

Again, the girl is 16! UK cover is much more appropriate :)

They both look like they are 25, so no winner for me!

I like the typography and image treatment on Russian covers so much more.

I actually really like both and can't choose... What do you think?

I prefer the original but I do like that we can see George on the other cover with her famous glasses ;)

That's some weird ass dystopian red carpet dress on Russian cover, plus that hood... *shakes head*

 What do you think?

I usually don't like Russian covers. No matter what genre it is, they almost always look like cheap romances. I also don’t understand how they translate book titles. Sometimes they are so different I wouldn’t have guessed that it is the same book.

I like the last Russian one, cool :D

As for cleavage girl, yeah, too much, hello 16

I just read Name of the Star over the holidays..I think the UK cover is the bets of them all..have the US version of the sequel and it looks awful.

I know what you mean about Feed, I love the original cover but it is kinda cool to see a sensible portrait of the characters now and then.

Russian covers are prettier! Though the covers of East are gorgeous, so I can't decide either wich one is my favorite

I so love the Russian cover of East! Very folklore-ish. :) It actually reminds me of a perfume that's inspired by Russian (Slavic) folklore! :) It's Enchanted Forest by The Vagabond Prince. :)

Hehe I think I agree with you ever time Kara.

I love the original cover of Feed. Most of the UK covers work better for me, the typography and images on Russian covers is nicer I totally agree.

Christina said...

What is it about The Name of the Star that it mostly gets terrible cover?

Hearts at Stake: UK.
Personal Demons: EW.
The Poison Throne: The Russian for sure.
East: UK
Feed: UK, though the Russian cover is hilarious.
The Last Princess: *snorts* Russians have a serious sense of humor is what I'm learning. Either that or these are the result of all of that vodka.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
