Book Wars! Rule [Marked Men #1] by Jay Crownover (75)

Book Wars a weekly feature hosted between two book review blogs – A Life Bound By BooksMuch 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 Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor is...USA!!!!!!

Synopsis:
Opposites in every way . . . except the one that matters

Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight-A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn’t want—and the only person she’s never tried to please. She isn’t afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won’t listen.

To a rebel like Rule Archer, Shaw Landon is a stuck-up, perfect princess-and his dead twin brother’s girl. She lives by other people’s rules; he makes his own. He doesn’t have time for a good girl like Shaw-even if she’s the only one who can see the person he truly is.

But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule have to figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love . . . or each other.

About the author:
I'm supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I'm an natural redhead even though I haven't seen my real hair color in years, I'm a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I've been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that.
I love to write, love to read and all I'm interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.
Thanks for taking the time to check my stuff out....

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
Gosh I love both of these covers. I mean... yeah, the US cover is pretty yummy. Just look at the hot tattooed man. And then the UK cover is so different from the US... I mean, Boy VS Girl. I love how she's highlighted and her eye is pretty stunning. Yet, I can't get around that tattooed boy!!!

I want to vote for the UK cover, I really, REALLY do, but I think I'm going to have to give this weeks vote to the US. I mean yeah... excuse me while I go drool some more. Don't forget to cast YOUR vote!
Michelle
This is an easy choice for me. The US cover was done way before the UK, so when I saw it, it was more like than love. What’s not to like about a hot tattooed man.
However all of that went out the window when the UK cover was released, and it was instant love. It’s dramatic, it’s clear, and it shows us the other half to the Marked Men.

The UK gets my vote for this weeks Book Wars, who get’s yours?

VOTE for YOUR favourite cover of Rule by Jay Crownover NOW!

  1. UK UK UK UK!!!!! The US cover does not feel like a real cover to me, it's just almost unfinished somehow. It's not one I would pick up. Then I look at the UK cover and I'm buying that book!
