Cover Fever #15: Me Before You by JoJo Moyes

Hi all, this month's cover that Rachel and I have chosen is one for a book that I totally fell in love with (I finished it last month and it's still constantly on my brain), it's Me Before You by JoJo Moyes, honestly if you haven't read this book yet, what are you waiting for, this book is one of those books that will probably break your heart several times, but trust me it will be worth it. So without further ado here are four versions of Me Before You. 

U.S COVER                                       U.K COVER

GERMAN COVER                          CZECH COVER 

I think the the US cover looks a little too peppy and happy for the subject matter of this book, and I don't really care for the color combination or the font of the Czech cover. The German cover is better but still not my favorite. I like the UK cover best of all four. The lettering seems a little melancholy and I think that fits in with the story better and the color combinations work.  I can't say I'm in love with any of the covers, though.

Rachel's Verdict:
The UK version is the best, IMO, of all four, but only marginally so.

I don't think that the U.S cover does this story the justice it deserves, it just comes across as a bit plain and simple to me, which is a real shame. I do like the prettiness of the U.K edition, I like the soft, subtle colours that they've gone for and the picture they've used does give the impression of hope, which conveys a lot what this book really is about. The German cover is pretty too, but the poppy like flowers remind me of a war novel. And finally the Czech cover, once again it is a pretty cover, but maybe not one that I would choose to have on my shelves. 

Jasprit's Final Verdict:
The three Euopean covers are quite similar, but I think the U.K cover has to be my favourite this time around.

Which books would you like to have on your shelves?


  1. I really like the UK one too! The US one does not stand out to me at all but obviously someone on the marketing team thinks it will speak to people :)

  2. I agree with you guys. I definitely think the UK cover the best. The US cover is so bland. I for one, would not pick up the book based on just the US cover.

  3. I like how they're all similar (except for the US cover) but have differences! I like pink so the UK cover for me haha~

  4. I actually really like the Czech cover, but I'm also partial to the color green so... ;) Thanks for sharing, ladies, and the UK cover is gorgeous! :)

  5. I'm taking your side on this one and voting for the U.K cover ALTHOUGH the U.S cover is quite pretty too so hmmm..... LOL

  6. I do like the UK cover! I still need to read this one, but it's definitely on my list.

  7. This is one of my favorite books! I own the US cover version and I think thats the one I like best. <3 Bee @ Bee Reads Books

  8. The UK one is my favorite in this bunch, too! It really gives that light-hearted feel but you immediately know from the get-go that it's the sort of story that will touch and inspire you. I really think the subtle pink and white makes you "feel" those emotional pulls.

  9. I'm from the UK but I got the hardback 'US' copy. You sure that's not just the hardback cover?

    Either way, I prefer the red one lol :) I like the simplicity

  10. I would actually go with the German cover, because that color combination attracts me more than the UK one :)

  11. Such gorgeous covers for one book. <3 I haven't read this, probably not for me, but seems cute :D I think I love the UK and German ones the same. Maybe :D They are both so pretty. <3 Thank you girls for sharing :)

  12. The US pales in comparison, I adore the UK version as well. I haven't read this book but I've heard great things!

  13. I have not read this book (don't think I will ever bring myself to D:) but I love the UK and German covers. They both happy and sad - bittersweet. Which sounds perfect for what I've heard about the book.
