Dutch Cover Alert

This idea/meme came from Jenny at Wondrous Reads.

The Netherlands – The United States

I love the Dutch cover. The font of the title is fun and cutsey. I also love the colourscheme of the cover. It makes me want to grab the book and start reading it. I also love the butterflies and the background of it. The swirls. The cover is simple and I like it. The American cover is nice, but isn’t really eye-catching. Maybe if it wasn’t a close-up of the girl, I would like it, but now I don’t.

Would you pick the Dutch or US cover?

I like the face cover. It makes me want to know more. Great post! I always enjoy these.

I agree. I like the Dutch cover better. :)

I'm not a big fan of either cover, but I'm going to go with the Dutch one. Something about the US cover w/ the girl's face doesn't work for me. Thanks for sharing this--I'm with Juju- I enjoy these posts, too!

I guess the US, but neither is very catching to me

I love the Dutch cover. Plus, red is eyecatching.

The U.S. cover looks like a bad photo has been taken but I really like the Dutch cover! :)

I like both covers a lot in their own ways. The Netherlands version is very subtle but eye catching while the US one is pretty but appears to look like a lot of the books out there now. So I'd probably go with the Netherlands version in the end.

I'm not liking the face on the US cover. Something just seems off about it.

@Juju & Christina: Thank you! :) I like doing these posts and that you are liking it means a lot. :)

I like the Dutch cover much better as well. I always wondered why they don't just keep the same cover for all over the world! I feel like all the covers besides the U.S. ones are so pretty! There are some certain US covers that I like better though, but not many.
