Book Wars! Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

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 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 Trial By Fire By: Josephine Angelini is.....US !  Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

So wrong for each other …and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.

But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

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 T
his week was a bit easier for me to choose... and can I just say that I've LOVED all of Katie's covers! She's been very lucky with the art departments with her publishers, that's for sure! For me, this weeks choice is for the US cover. And I should mention that if you look around you'll see slight variations of these two covers and these were/are my favorite of BOTH of these variations.

So, for this week the US cover gets my vote. And now it's your turn to tell us which of these two is your favorite in the poll below.
This is an easy pick for me this week, I love this series so much and can't wait for the next instalment, that being said my vote has to go to the US this week.
I love how this represents Echo and Noah so much, and while I do like the basis of the UK cover, I'm not too keen on the effect used on it. To see what I thought of the story, check out my review here.
