Cover Comparison [21]

Normally I like to do cover comparisons of books that I've already read but when I saw the UK cover of The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater I knew that I had to feature it even though I haven't read the book yet. Let the cover comparison begin!

                                               US Cover                   UK Cover

US Cover: This cover comes off as uber photoshopped. I think its the combination of the gold letters, the silhouette, and the strange nothingness background. I mean the silhouette of the horse almost seems like its floating. O.O

UK Cover: I love how this cover is basically the polar opposite of the US one. Instead of being all digitized its more of an artsy fartsy cover. But that doesn't make it any less cool! I love the artsiness of it. However one thing that I find funny is the fact that there are so many hearts in the artwork. I didn't actually notice this until my sister pointed it out and now that she has I can't stop looking at the hearts! Is love a big theme in The Scorpio Races?

So who wins? I have to give it to the UK cover! I just love the artwork and the contrast between the black, white, and red. All the hearts are a little iffy but oh well. The US cover is fine but I just don't find it as visually appealing as the UK cover.

So which cover of The Scorpio Races do YOU like best? Be sure to vote in the poll below and sound off in the comments about why you made your decision!

If you have any cover comparison suggestions for me be sure to leave them in the form below!

  1. I actually super like both and it's almost an impossible decision. I think if I desperately needed to decide it would be US. I haven't read it yet either, but I've it's kind of kick-butt with the whole man-eating horses thing, so the UK one just seems a little too girly for the story.

    1. Whoa its about man eating horses? O.O Totally did not know that... Haha yeah after discovering that the UK cover does seem a bit girly with all the hearts.... Haha. XD

  2. So, I was about to say "UK [cover] all the way!", but after reading the comment that the book was about man eating horses, I'm kind of reconsidering...

  3. I don't really like them... I don't like the colors in the US cover and I don't like all the hearts in the UK one...
