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.

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!

At seventeen, Lain Fisher has already aced the Institute's elite training program for Mindwalkers, therapists who use a direct neural link to erase a patient's traumatic memories. A prodigy and the daughter of a renowned scientist-whose unexplained death left her alone in the world-Lain is driven by the need to save others.

When Steven, a troubled classmate, asks her to wipe a horrific childhood experience from his mind, Lain's superiors warn her to stay away. Steven's scars are too deep, they say; the risk too great. Yet the more time Lain spends with him, the more she begins to question everything about her society. As she defies the warnings and explores Steven's memories, it becomes clear that he's connected to something much bigger…something the Institute doesn't want the world to discover.

Lain never expected to be a rule breaker. She certainly didn't plan on falling in love with a boy she's been forbidden to help. But then, she never expected to stumble into a conspiracy that could ignite a revolution.

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 is an easy week for me. Hands down the US cover wins for me this week! The cover is almost hauntingly beautiful. And the UK cover is just... flat. It doesn't speak to me in the ways that the US cover does. Feels not finished.

So, with an easy week for me and my choice of favorite cover - the US - which will YOU be voting for? Click on a cover below and share your thoughts today!
Both of these covers are unique in their own way, and could not be more different. I have read this book and I can vaguely see how the US cover is relevant to the story itself, and how the UK one doesn’t really relate to the book, so that is why my vote today is going to be more about cover appeal to me.

For me, the book that appeals to me the most is the UK. I love how striking it is, but also the sparklyness of it, how the light reflects off the glitter just right, and how dramatic the eye is.

It’s a UK vote for me this week. Don’t forget to leave you vote below and my review of the book can be found here.

VOTE for YOUR favourite cover of Mindwalker by A.J. Steiger NOW!
