Incarceron series by Catherine Fisher

  1. Incarceron (2007)
  2. Sapphique (2008)
  • 1st row: US
  • 2nd row: UK

US beats the UK editions hands-down. Even though I live I’m in the commonwealth I ordered the US editions to be shipped over. What’s not perfect about them?



The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins

  1. The Hunger Games (2008)
  2. Catching Fire (2009)
  3. Mockingjay (2010)
Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games

  • 1st row: US
  • 2nd row: UK

As a whole I prefer the US edition of this series; they have a uniformity and clean look to them that appeals to me. The grunge look of the UK series doesn’t cut it for me, though in all honesty it’s the cover of Catching Fire that ruins the set. If it had had a different design it would have been a close call otherwise!

Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer

The first cover comparison I did was in 2009 and I posted it on Fanpop. It featured the different Artemis Fowl covers in the US, the UK, and the new US covers.

  1. Artemis Fowl (2001)
  2. The Arctic Incident (2002)
  3. The Eternity Code (2004)
  4. The Opal Deception (2005)
  5. The Lost Colony (2006)
  6. The Time Paradox (2008)
  7. The Atlantis Complex (2010)

Since that time a new book has come out, The Atlantis Complex, and I’ve amended the comparison accordingly:

Eoin Colfer - Artemis Fowl (-2011)

Eoin Colfer - Artemis Fowl (-2011)

  • 1st row: US (old edition)
  • 2nd row: UK
  • 3rd row: US (new edition)
