Hello readers! Jasprit and I love covers, so we're starting a new feature on the blog: Cover Fever. This title will be a catch-all for any type of post we want to do that involves Book Covers: cover changes, covers from different countries, our favorite or most hated ones. This week we're featuring the a few of the covers from different countries of a book I recently read and loved: All the Truth That's In Me by Julie Berry. I'm picking a favorite and so is Jasprit. Let us know your favorite and thoughts below in the comments!
US Cover: Australian Cover:
Jasprit: Even though I haven't read this book yet, I find myself more drawn to the US cover, I like how fierce the MC looks on the cover and how they've got a sharp cut going through her mouth, it matches well with the title of the book and also what I've heard the book is about so far. Whereas the Australian cover is nice, I don't think I would ever be drawn to it if I saw it in bookstore. I'm normally disappointed with the covers that we get in the UK and I have to say that I that I don't find this one really appealing, it does seem that it would be targeted towards a younger reading audience with the cover that they've gone for. Although the German cover is really pretty and it reminds me of the autumn (my favourite season!) I think the US cover still stands out for me above the rest.
Final Verdict: Definitely the US cover.
Rachel: I'm going to start with my least favorite first and it's a tie: The UK cover and the Australian covers just do not appeal to me at all. The UK cover has a cartoonish feel to it, and doesn't match up with the story in my mind at all. The story is a historical mystery/romance and the UK cover looks like a fairy tale. I just don't like the Australian cover, which is a shock because I usually prefer their covers over all others. It's just so drab to me. I love the US cover! The girl looks intense, beautiful, and also a little broken which is perfect for the story. I also love the German cover with the autumnal colors, it reminds me of the setting of the book and the girl, and dress look like they could fit in with the time period. So I guess my favorite is a tie as well!
Final Verdict: It's a tie between the US and German covers.
