Book Wars! Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth (60)


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 US, it’s sometimes vastly different across the pond in the UK. 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 Slammed by Colleen Hoover is USA!!!!!! Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Also, there's a poll at the bottom of the post that we'd love to hear your input for the two covers! Tell us which one YOU love the most.

Synopsis:
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered--fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature--and of herself--while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

About the author:

Veronica Roth is from a Chicago suburb. She studied creative writing at Northwestern University, and wrote DIVERGENT (Katherine Tegen Books, May 2011) and INSURGENT (May 2012). The third and final book in The Divergent Trilogy, ALLEGIANT, will come out on October 22, 2013. In the meantime she will spend endless hours browsing Wikipedia in her pajamas as she eats corn flakes. (Or some other kind of bland breakfast cereal.)

Let the Wars Begin:
Its now time to make our decision, let's see what we think about the covers and pick our favorite cover.
Lisa
One thing I can say about the art departments for each publisher for this trilogy is that they have without a doubt done an AMAZING job with these covers. Not only do they fit along amazingly well when you take a look at the books side by side each other, but they are BOTH pretty beautiful to look at.

And while I do love the UK covers, there's just something about the US covers that pulls to me a little more. There's more depth and more to find the longer you look at them. So, this week... my vote goes to the US cover. And I'll admit that I haven't read the book yet. I've heard such mixed reviews and I loved the first two books that I just can't bring myself to read what the HUGE controversy is all about. I have an idea or two and I'd rather be left without knowing for the time being.

Now which cover to YOU like the best of the two? Vote below! And check out my review for: Divergent

This is such a tough choice this week. Like Lisa said, the artwork for both of these books is spectacular, and that just makes it so much harder to choose.

I love how bright the US cover is, and I love the effect of the water in the middle, and the run down buildings on the bottom.

The UK one is just as eye catching. I love the feathers, I love how she is standing alone, but looks strong and powerful (this just makes me want to read this book even more...yes I still have to read this one even though I own it)

I am going to vote for UK this week, and that is purely because it matches the books I have already on my shelves.

VOTE for YOUR favourite cover of Allegiant NOW!
