Book Wars! Forgotten by Cat Patrick

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 UK vs. US 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 Unravelling by Elizabeth Norris is UK!

Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Each night at precisely 4:33 am, while sixteen-year-old London Lane is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can "remember" are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture. Luke Henry is not someone you'd easily forget, yet try as she might, London can't find him in her memories of things to come.

When London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flash-forwards, as the case may be, she realizes it's time to learn about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

About the author: 
Cat Patrick is an author of books for teens. Her debut novel, FORGOTTEN (available now), is about a girl who can remember the future instead of the past, and was praised by NYT bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why, Jay Asher, as a "mindbending," one-sitting read. The book is being translated into 21 languages and Paramount bought the movie rights, with True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld attached to star as the main character, London Lane.

Patrick's second (unrelated) novel, REVIVED, is about a girl who's part of a secret government program to test a drug that brings people back from the dead. REVIVED will be available in the US May 2012, and in the UK and Australia Summer 2012.

Patrick lives near Seattle with her husband and twin 3-year-olds, and is afraid of zombies, planes, and zombies on planes.

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.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK! Love, Love, LOVE! And between the two covers, I have to say that I'm sticking with the US cover for this round. I'm not sure either really represent the story all that well, but I think the UK cover is kind of odd. So, this week I'm all about the US cover. If you haven't read this one yet, you are MISSING out! Check out my review: Here
I have yet to read this book, but from reading the synopsis I have to agree with Lisa and vote for the USA cover this week too. I have no idea how the UK cover fits with the book at all and if I were to pick them from a shelf I would definitely go for the USA one first.

VOTE for YOUR favorite cover of Forgotten NOW!


  1. I love, love, love looking at the various covers for the same book! I'm a fan of the US cover as well. It grabs my attention right away!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and voting :)

  2. I remember getting a proof of this a while back and the cover was just red. I went for the UK cover, I just like it more. The two figures make me think of London's past and future, like she is two different people.

    1. I've not read this book yet, but now I'm interested in seeing how the UK cover goes with the books. Thanks for stopping by :)
