Charity (Reading at Midnight) (charitysbooks) | 3 comments Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1) by Laini Taylor
looooooove the UK edition!
Also a BIG fan of
Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1) by Cassandra Clare
but actually, the white edition found at Barnes and Noble.

Hell is not a bad word. It doesn't need to be censored.


Creative Orange (Rumell Khan) (rkrespectedmember) I prefer UK editions than American editions.

Me too! Do they just get better artists or something?

Creative Orange (Rumell Khan) (rkrespectedmember) I think it is University of Oxbridge reason why they have better artists, Or maybe it is just natural of them. They have been taught well through education, which I doubt American's ever had. I am just being honest.

This is coming just from a British citizen who doesn't usually boast about their country often.

Anna (bibbidi_bobbidi_books) I have a shelf on Goodreads just devoted to pretty covers.
I totally agree with you @Charity. Cassandra Clare's newest series have had such on point covers.

I loved the Raven Cycle covers, but I wasn't a huge fan of the books.

Kingdom of Ash and Briar
Kingdom of Ash and Briars (The Nissera Chronicles) by Hannah West
and An Enchantment of Ravens
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
Are both ones I dig.

In many genres it's the publishers' belief that US readers prefer "people" covers, whereas British and Australian readers prefer beautiful artwork.

A lot of books that have a "sexy guy" on them in America don't have any people on them in other editions.

I actually really don't like it when a cover has a real person on it.
Never really thought of that.

I don't mind a book with a hot guy in it. He-he! But I think it needs to be related to the book. If the story is about gardening you would have flowers in it or features of a garden.

Audrey (niceyackerman) A shirtless guy on a cover (usually the head is cropped out) guarantees I won’t read it.

I like a lot of the new Sullivan covers:
Age of Myth (The Legends of the First Empire, #1) by Michael J. Sullivan The Death of Dulgath (The Riyria Chronicles, #3) by Michael J. Sullivan
