GIRL OF NIGHTMARES - UK VS US COVER + COVER OF THE WEEK - FEBRUARY - WEEK 3

So recently my Cover of the Week has been tied in with other things such as cover reveals, but this cover is so stunning I'm going to tie it in with a Uk vs US cover.

UK------US

Right so lets get started. When Anna dressed in blood was released there was no questioning it. The UK cover won, but this time round I really stuck. Obviously the main image is the same but the way they have been done are completely different. So lets take the covers apart one bit at a time. The tagline. The UK has the tagline Spellbinding and romantic, whereas the american just has spellbinding. I find that the single word quote works for me better. With the US tagline I like how it is smaller and doesn't stand out too much but I think it's too low down, whereas the UK tagline is higher up. So overall I think the US tagline just wins. Author title. Right well this is draw, because although the UK author title is a tad big for my preference the us one has patterns that are rather distracting. Main title. Well they're the same, so it comes down to the image and colours. Putting all of this aside, looking at both the covers you cant help but think, my god they're beautiful, but back to business. I don't know, I think the idea of having some parts red and some parts grayscale on the uk cover is very clever but something about it seems off to me. Maybe it the fact that her lower skin has colour but her upper doesn't?  And also the glow around her hair on the UK seems a little too pretty fairytale for a horror. And then the US. Migod. The whole red effect creates a completely magical feel. A very fairytale feel, but the kind of this-is-about-a-blood-thirsty-i'm-gonna-kill-you-ghost fairytale. And the red to me just screams blood. This is mega hard for me cause they are both beautiful and theres not to much difference but I think US has to win.

Cover of the week:
Well pretty much says it above.

Author: Sarah J Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury Kids
ISBN: 9781408857892
Rating: A

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court – but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms – and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future – and the future of a world cleaved in two.

It has been a long time since I've loved a book as much this. A court of mist and fury is by far the best book that I have read in 2016 so far, and easy surpassed it's predecessor a court of thorn and roses.

The plot of this was so incredibly per…

Apologies and Explanations

Okay guys, we need to talk and by that I mean I have some apologies and explaining to do to you. So as you've more than obviously noticed I've been extremely inactive this year, even after promising I'd try to be more active. So now I'm going to explain why. By no means have I abandoned the blog nor do I want to. I seriously love this blog so much and connecting with you all and sharing my love for books and reading with you all. In fact it's really frustrating for me to be unable to devote the amount of time I'd like to to this blog. So to reader, authors and publishers, I'm insanely sorry for my lack of presence. Anyway apologies aside let me explain why it's been this way. Last September I started my first year of A levels and quite honestly I had no idea the amount of time they'd take up in my life and they did take up way loads of time. I found that not only did I have no time write blog posts but I had no time to read either, unless you count…
