Cover VS Cover is a new feature I came up with because I love cover memes and I've recently become fascinated with the differences between US/UK, new/old book covers. This week I'm looking at some old YA favorites which have been repackaged countless times.
The Uglies Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld
Original US VS New UK VS New US
So, what do you guys think? Myself I'm still a little stuck on the old US covers, since those are the books I have and I love them. The new US ones are cool, too, though-- very edgy and eerie. Especially the Uglies one. I''m not such a fan of the new UK covers-- they don't capture the feel of the books at all for me, though they are very unique. I left out the old UK covers with the weird doll parts and whatnot, but if you'd like to see those as well, check out Scott Westerfeld's blog. Let me know what you think, guys. I'm really excited about this new feature.
