Cover Wars - Wings

The Book - Wings by Aprilynne Pike

USA


I love this cover. It's beautiful and fits well with the slow, slightly dreamy feel of the book. Although I didn't realize that the wings, were in fact petals, until after I'd finished the book.

UK


I do think this cover is very pretty, and obviously the flower fits more with the story but it just reminds me of Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors.  I expect to open up the book and read Feed me Seymour!

So for me the USA is the winner this week.

So what do you think UK or USA? If you'd read the books which do you think is a better match? If you haven't which would would make you pick the book up?

  2. I really like both covers this time, but the US one gets the edge for the simplicity. That usually works for me :)

  6. The UK cover makes it seem very middle-grade. I haven't read it. Is that what it is? The UK cover, on the other hand, has the stark simplicity you so often find in older YA. Even though I love MG, I think I'd pick up the UK cover first. UK for me!
