For me both are nice but I'm gravitating towards the U.S. version. Maybe the UK version looks different in person. 
Which cover do you like?

It's amazing how a certain cover can either push you away or entice you into picking up a book. Initially seeing the U.S edition of this one awhile back I thought it was a unique idea but that is it. I just found the UK cover and OMG it makes me want to know more!

Guest Post: Freedom Matthews talks food aboard the Wilted Rose

Today I am so excited to have Freedom Matthews, author of Inherited on the blog today to talk about the crew's food menu aboard the Wilted Rose!
Before we start here's a bit about Inherited and you can find my review HERE!

If saying 'I love you' meant death, would you still say it?

The Wilted Rose, of faery-tale and folklore, is a pirate ship filled with unfortunate souls-each forbidden to love. One such soul is Valencia 'Lennie' Roux. Raised in a brothel and an heir to a curse; Lennie never expected to pique the interest of any man. Yet with the arrival of vivid-eyed Nathaniel, she is torn between wanting to know him better and fearing what that knowledge would mean.

With Nathaniel bringing the crew's total to six, the Wilted Rose sets off in search of the remaining two heirs. They hope that in reuniting, they will convince the faery Sorceress responsible for the curse, to end it. However lurking beneath the water is a long standing enemy of the Wilted …

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods,…

All About That Cover: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

"All About That Cover" is a weekly event hosted here that focuses on the differences between various book covers of the same book, such as cover changes, covers from different countries as well as special editions.  U.S vs. UK Cover

I just love Laini's writing style. She has a magical quality to her stories.
These covers are both very eyecatching. I really like how they are both a formation of blue & gold and the fact that they both have wings on the cover. I don't have a favorite, I'd say I love them both equally.
