Don’t I Know You From Somewhere?
So far this has happened with-
Last Chance by Sarah Dessen – it has a different title too, it’s Keeping the Moon in the US, so for a moment I was very excited at the thought of a new Sarah Dessen.
The Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale – loving Shannon Hale’s UK covers.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – I adore these. I never thought Rose looked right on the US ones.
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer – okay I didn’t think this was something else. The apple in the cupped hands is pretty iconic, but the white cover? That made me pause. I’m not sure why they changed it. It looks funny and not half as striking as the black, and the red edged pages remind of those really old romance novels I used to read.
The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan – oh wow I love this cover, but I actually picked it up thinking it was another book that’s getting a lot of buzz – Forbidden.
Looking For Alaska by John Green – I loved the US cover ,but the UK one is definitely intriguing
There are a few old friends in the bookstore. Across the Universe by Beth Revis, Matched by Ally Condie and Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin are all prominently displayed in my local bookstore, with the same covers. The last one I’m especially happy to see, as I loved it and felt it slipped under the radar a bit in the US.
Do any of these US covers grab you? Which would you pick up?
