Cover VS Cover 1

Cover Vs Cover

Weekly meme that compares the front covers of international books at This week I am going to compare the Night Watch series. 

For those who haven't read or watched the Night Watch...go do it now. 

UK Version. I like this cover as it's dark and coincides with the original film, which I adore. The cover doesn't need anything to be pretty or appealing, as if you're lucky enough to have watched the movie you'll be eating this book up, or vise verse.

The US version is very different, although I think it is pretty unlike the UK version. However, it does not really establish anything significant to the story, and neither do I think a pretty cover is necessary to this story as it's not meant to be pretty.

I wanted to compare it to the original Russian version, but I can't find it anywhere. So this is as far as the comparison will go unfortunately. 

 DVD cover, I think they should make this the book cover too, as it just looks so bad-ass.



  1. I love the film DVD cover, but the best book is the UK one. Though I may be a little biased. ;)

    Thanks for showing an interest in my Week of Guests! I wouldn't hold being new against you; I only started blogging in January. I love your blog, and your reviews and other posts look great, so I'm definately considering you! Plus, I love the idea of a top-ten YA books, and a fantasy review would be ace too. Thanks again, Amy! I'll get back to you ASAP about whether you're in! :)

  2. Ooh, I LOVE that UK cover! It looks intriguing, and tells you what the book is about. The US cover, unfortunately, suffers from US pretty syndrome.

    Love that DVD cover, too!

  3. @ TheBookAddictedGirl, Yeah the UK one is pretty good isn't it ;).

    That's great, thank you so much for considering me. I'm glad you like, i'll hopefully get better as time goes on. I'm really enjoying the whole blogger experience right now.

    I will cross my fingers.

    @Penelope, US pretty syndrome heh, i like that. Works on some books, but not so much on others.

  4. Hi Amy~!
    Thank you for stopping by my blog :) I'm following you, too!
    As for Night Watch~ I read three novels in the series, I think I liked the Night Watch the best :) I don't really remember the cover, though, as I had it from the library and didn't really pay any attention to that at that time :)

    I'm glad to hear that there are more people out there who know about this series!

  5. Hey Evie, you're very welcome.

    Glad you've read it too, as i'd agreed not many people have heard of it.

  6. Wow, two Evie's in a row for I love the UK version. Yay, bloogger fixed the follower button so I'm following you now. If you want to follow me feel free to stop by again.


  7. Hey, i will do that now. Yeah the UK cover is pretty great heh.

    Thanks Evie two! Following you back.

  8. I have to admit I've never heard of it! But I'm really liking the UK cover so much more, it just grabs me in a different way. The US cover seems too soft and pretty for a book like this. (A book I have not read lol.) I love these cover comparisons! ;)


  9. I like the UK cover! Thanks for following my blog. Sorry if the music startled you. It startles me too when I forget to lower my speakers when I've raised the volume for something else (and it's my blog!) Hope you visit again. Lovely blog here. Donna

  10. That's okay, only startled me a little bit!

    I will do of course,



Thank you for leaving a comment, I love reading them
