Book Wars! Crash by Nicole Williams

Book Wars a weekly feature hosted between two book review blogs – A Life Bound By Books & Much Loved Books!

It’s a fact that book lovers know all about the covers of the books they covet. Often when a title is released here in the UK, it’s sometimes vastly different across the pond in the US.  So, Lisa from A Life Bound By Books and I have come together to create Book Wars to talk about the difference in covers when it comes to the US vs. UK versions. We hope from time to time authors will chime in with their thoughts as well. We welcome everyone to comment and share their thoughts too! The more the merrier!

Before we get to this weeks Book Wars, we have a winner to announce. 
The Book Wars winner for Down To You was...US!!!!

Synopsis:
Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now. Jude is everything she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find out, is the only thing she's incapable of. For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love is about to become the thing that tears them apart.

About the author:

I'm a wife, a mom, a writer. I started writing because I loved it and I'm still writing because I love it. I write young adult because I still believe in true love, kindred spirits, and happy endings. Here's to staying young at heart *raises champagne glass* . . . care to join me?

Let the Wars Begin:
Its now time to make our decision, let's see what we think about the covers and pick our favourite cover.

Lisa
For me, my vote this week goes to the US cover. It seems to "fit" more for the story and age of the characters than the UK cover. The UK cover has more of an adult feel to it, which wouldn't put me off reading, however I would be going into reading this title believing it was one thing when in all actuality it's something totally different.

So, my vote this week goes to the original US cover!
Michelle
My pick this week goes to the USA cover. This cover is initially what drew me into this book, the cover is simple yet effective and makes you want to know why a ballerina could be linked to tatty pumps. I actually own this book, but with the new USA version (thanks to the cover series change on the final book)
The UK seems too much like Fifty Shades type of book, and would actually put me off reading this book if I saw this first.

My vote goes to USA this week
