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!

In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time.…

Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.

Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.

When he inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn.…

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.
Oh there's no question about which cover gets my vote this week. I LOVE the UK cover.

The colors are beautiful and it's one of those covers I can't wait to see in person. This one would without a doubt just beg me to pick it up.

I seriously love it and I think this is one to add to my favorites list.

So, there's my vote this week - the UK cover. Which gets YOUR vote? Give a quick click below to tell us which one is YOUR favorite of the week.
This is such an easy choice for me this week. I saw the USA cover before the UK one, and I really hoped that we would get a different version. When I finally saw the UK cover I was beyond happy.

I love it. I love how it shows two images merged together to make one, I love how it relates to the book itself (which is really good). It’s also not something I’ve seen before, which makes it unique and memorable. It's a UK vote for me this week.

Which cover gets your vote, make your choice below.

VOTE for YOUR favourite cover of Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine NOW!


  1. I really like the colors on the US cover. They are bright and grab my attention. I also like the books on the cover. But they are both pretty! Can I have them both? :)

  2. I love the US cover and adored this book..but yeah the UK cover is lovely!!

  3. If you saw the spine design on the US cover, I think you'd fall over dead with love. ;) And the PAPER.

    They're both gorgeous. I'm just partial to the US version. So tactile!

  4. I could've swore I comment here, but anyways. I choose the US cover. The cover is half the reason I bought the book. I like the UK cover, but I think the US cover is more unique.


Thank you for taking a few moments to comment.
Comments mean love and make the world go round so don't be shy :)
