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!

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray arrives in England during the reign of Queen Victoria, something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Friendless and hunted, Tessa weeks refuge with the Shadowhunters, a band of warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons. Drawn even deeper into their world, she finds herself fascinated by - and torn between - two best friends and quickly realizes that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

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.
This week is a bit different because the cover we have shown is the original US cover and the one I actually own, however the covers have since changed to the one shown above.

I really like BOTH the US and what's shown as the UK cover! I used to think that the cover shown as the UK version was so dramatic however the new US cover is pretty amazing! I like that it just so fits! I like how it's a bit brighter than the UK cover... and I also like that they've kept the images that are under the back ground to keep this in line with the original books.

So, it's without a doubt that the vote for this week, even with how much I love my original cover... is the NEW US version.

Which one do YOU like best?
This is an easy week for me this week. The UK cover has been around for a while with various stages of font design, and although it's been published for a few years, I wanted to do this today to include the newly designed US covers.

The UK cover is very nice, and under any other circumstances I would have chosen this as my favorite, especially with the London background, but the new covers for the US books are AMAZING.

I am so in love with the US covers for this series. I love how it focuses on an different characters for each book. I love everything about the makeover for the US book, and I really need to have these sitting on my shelf.

It's a very easy US win for me this week, but which cover gets your vote?
