Book Wars! Slammed by Colleen Hoover

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 Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor is...USA!!!!!!
Thank you to everyone who voted for both books, and for picking a winner.

Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope.

Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.

Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.

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.
Super easy choice for me this week. Without a doubt the US cover wins this round. The UK cover seems so Adult or even maybe the cover for an Erotic novel.

There's just not enough to the UK cover either. Very bland, which sometimes work but not really for me with this one.

So, the US wins, hands down and gets my vote this week. Which cover are YOU voting for? Let us know in the poll below.
This is an easy choice for me. When I first saw Slammed it was with the original cover, it intrigued me enough to buy the book and I was hooked. But between the US and the UK covers above its a USA vote for me.

The UK one just doesn't do anything for me, and to me looks like it should be an adult book like Fifty Shades. Sadly I have this cover as the US one is only available on kindle..

The USA one is perfect for this story. It represents the story, the characters, and the theme so well. I am in cover love with this cover and I can’t wait till it’s finally available in paperback.

Its an easy USA vote for me
