So I’ve seen Hailey from Hailey In Bookland do a video like this and even though I don’t actually have a book tube account, I thought I would make a post about it on here. I’ve definitely been putting more time into my account and I like the fact that I don’t just post book reviews. I enjoy being able to talk freely to an audience, no matter how small, and this blog has become an outlet for my writing. Even though I may not be writing fantasy like I’ve done in the past (not on this blog), I’ve always enjoyed writing so, for me, this is a great way to just let loose and write.
1. Heartless by Marissa Meyer
So for this one, I prefer the US cover. I tend to go for black books and I really like the simplicity of the black with the red vines (not to be confused with the candy).
2. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I don’t really like either set of covers for this series but the UK editions are definitely easier to look at. I don’t tend to like books with people on the cover because they just look fake and way too dramatic. I also don’t like how the colour on the cover changes for every book. I mean sometimes that’s okay but I just don’t like it for this series.
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
4. Madly by Amy Alward (also called The Potion Diaries)
Okay so this was one of my first book reviews on this blog and I really enjoyed this book. I absolutely detest the UK cover of this book. To me, it just makes the book look childish and if I saw it in the bookstore, I wouldn’t ever pick it up. This makes me sad because it was a really great book and I’ve recommended it to friends who’ve also enjoyed it. Also, I have nothing against Zoe Sugg but really? You’re going to put the words “it’s so cool’ on the front cover of your book? I just think it takes away from the book and to me, it sounds incredibly fake.
5. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
There really is no competition here, I’m all about the UK edition of this book series. They are just so pretty and I definitely prefer the pretty designs to the bare-chested man on the US edition. I love the designs so much that I’m thinking about designing a future tattoo around the rose that is on the City of Glass cover.
6. To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
So I think I really love the US edition of this novel. When I read this book for my English class I bought myself a copy and I just really love the cover. I like the larger incorporation of the tree and I think it is just more visually appealing.
