It's actually a book I haven't read yet but has been sitting on my TBR pile for a few months - Uglies by Scott Westerfield. I've heard plenty of positive reviews and the range of different covers available are intriguing...I've only picked six or so of the covers that are available - it seems that since first published Uglies has had a lot of reprints in different covers!
|UK 2005 Cover|
|US 2005 Cover|
|UK Cover 2006|
|US Cover 2011|
|UK Cover 2012|
UK 2005 Cover: I actually find this one a little creepy - the different doll parts in the surgery tray...very scary!
US 2005 Cover: The girl in close up, partly hidden by the grass...hmmm....a little boring for me, but it does have a slight hint of raptor in Jurassic Park - not sure if that was the intent though!
UK 2006 Cover: This is brash and bold - with the red background and different scenes in the silhouette it looks like an action film poster - almost James Bond-esque!
US 2011 Cover: A white sheet over the girls face so she doesn't look real and those blue finger-nails...this is another creepy one!
UK 2012 Cover: This is very subtle with the eye in the letters and the scalpel cutting the 'E', but to be honest I think it is a little dull. Plus the obligatory Hunger Games references doesn't do much for me!
Bulgarian Cover: I had to include this one as it's so different from the other covers - it looks very Sci-Fi - almost War of the World-like with the girl running and the airships/flying saucers searching. Makes me wonder even more what the story is like...
My Verdict: I actually like a lot of these covers but I am most drawn to the UK 2006 Cover - what can I say? I like action movies! :-)
