US Covers: I love the fact that they kept the covers simple but also intriguing. They've also got a certain feel to them that is modern and primitive all at the same time. The best part about these covers is that they go together really well, and they help give you an idea of what the Maze and the Scorch look like.
UK Covers: The best thing about these covers? The tagline hands down! Why didn't they use that on the US covers? I really like the UK cover for The Maze Runner, but I'm not as huge of a fan of their cover for The Scorch Trials. The color scheme is just too much like a sunset. But I absolutely LOVE the Maze Runner cover. It captured the epicness of that book perfectly. It practically buzzes with excitement! The thing I like about both covers is that having the black background really makes the titles pop. And they both go together well so I can't really fault them there. I just wish they had only done orange/yellow for The Scorch Trials color scheme instead of incorporating pink and purple. Like I said, too much like a sunset. :P
So who wins? This one is REALLY close. I like the UK Maze Runner cover better than the US one, but I like the Scorch Trials US cover better than the UK. I guess I have to give it to the US covers. They're atmospheric feel has won me over. However I would love to own both sets of the books. I'm such a book nerd. >.<
