Cover Comparison Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by me to showcase international covers of a certain book, and share opinions on each.
<-- US Version
This cover is both simple and intriguing at the same time. I love the dominoes, and the eerie font. I would definitely pick this book up.
UK version 1 -->
This cover is pretty boring. I'm all for simplicity, but not for simple covers looking like they're geared towards 90 year olds
<-- UK version 2
In my opinion, this cover isn't really eye-catching. It's a little dull and not the least bit interesting. At least it has more color than the other UK version
Japanese version -->
While I'm happy not to see this cover looking as though it belongs on a comic book, I do not like the color scheme. The browns against the orange background remind me of a rotting pumpkin, or dog barf.
For me, the US version is an overwhelming favorite. If you participate this week, leave the link in the comments and I'll be sure to stop by your blog.
Now, for part 2 of this post. I'm going to take a blogging vacation. My summer is getting hectic with babysitting, friends, golf, rowing, vacations, etc, and I'm afraid to say I'm going to have to put the blog in the backseat for a bit. Cover Comparison Thursdays will continue, even if I'm not able to post one of the weeks, and I will still comment on others comparisons.
A note to publishers/authors: I will continue reading and reviewing the ARCs you have sent, and the reviews WILL be posted. It just might take a bit longer than usual.
