Cover Love: ASH by Malinda Lo

Author Malinda Lo had posted the new UK cover of ASH on her blog the other day and I wanted to share it with you. I usually tend to favor the UK versions of books, but this time I must admit that I LOVE the US cover version so much more.


















What do you think about the covers? Which do you prefer? You can see the original post HERE

Here is a blurb that will be featured on the back cover of the US edition

"Kaisa turned the pages of the book curiously. “Fairy tales,” she observed. “I have a favorite tale. Do you wish to hear it?” Once again Ash was surprised, and the paring knife slipped and nicked her finger, leaving behind a thin line of blood.

“Be careful,” said Kaisa, and reached out to take the knife away from her. Ash relinquished the knife, raising her finger to her mouth, and the huntress slid the blade under the rosy skin of the apple, peeling it off in a single smooth strip.

When Kaisa finished the story, the food lay untouched between them, but the apple had been sliced neatly into six wedges, the skin coiled like a ribbon around them. “Please,” said the huntress, “will you eat?” Ash picked up a piece of the apple and bit into it, and the flesh was crisp and sweet"

  3. Yeah. Even though both are gorgeous, I'm leaning more towards the US cover. Cause it's purty.

  6. I totally agree with you. I usually like UK covers much better, but I favor the US cover of Ash. It is just perfect! Don't get me wrong, the UK cover is gorgeous, but there's something extra special about the US cover.

  7. I love both, but I'm kinda leaning more toward the UK version. Prolly cuz blue is my fave color, lol. Not a big fan of the fonts though on the UK cover. Can we combine US fonts with UK cover? lol

    I didn't even know she had posted the UK cover- thanks for sharing!!

  8. I'm definitely more in love with the US cover. It's darker, but I prefer it's more simple design. It hits all the right notes.

  9. I prefer the US cover. It's more stylsih, yet the UK cover looks a bit childish and rough.

  11. The grey one is gorgeous, but maybe not perfect for this book? That one makes me think of grieving, sadness. I LOVE the blue, that colour blue makes me go "Ooooooh!!"
