This is inspired by Jenny @ Wondrous Reads, I love her US vs UK posts so much that has to go looking for some. US left, UK one. Pick your favorite ^^

Memoirs Of A Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin

My choices:
1. UK - it looks cute and reminds me of Lock and Key
2. A tie - the first close up is breathtaking while the font in the second one has  very nice effects.
3. US - love the snowglobe. Besides, the other one seems so gloomy.
4. UK - I prefer photograph.
5. UK - simply beautiful.

1) It both are so cute!
2) These are so difficult to choose between because they both have their good points.
3) US-the snowglobe looks more hopeful
4) UK-the picture is most definitely better!
5) US-I think it has more meaning to it, but that's just my opinion.

First 2, I prefer the US and the UK for the others.

An aside, it is amazing to me how enduring Judy Blume's appeal is. I read her 30 years ago.

Ooh, I'm actually reading Forever at the moment! Except the cover is different to the ones you have there.

Ever find those books where all the different covers are great and you just want to own a copy of each? That's how I feel like right now!
