Books Everywhere!!

I just spent 2 hours in Starbucks writing down all of the books that I have on my bookshelves. Then I counted them all up, and my total was 287. 287!!! I knew it was over 200, but I didn't expect it to be that high. I also have about 25 books sitting next to one of my book shelves as well.

Book Covers

I have been contemplating buying a few books from the UK. My reason is because I like the covers better than their US counterparts. Is it weird that I want to buy books from another country because I like the cover better? I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but I already know that these books are going to be good, that's why I am even thinking about getting them from the UK. Below are the covers of the books I'm thinking of getting, with the US cover on the left, UK on the right.

While I like the US cover of Stolen Away, I think the UK is prettier. I like the colors better, and it seems more elegant. That might not be the right word, but it suits my tastes better than the US cover does.

I don't really like the US cover at all. To me, it seems kind of ugly, from the greenish color of the cover to the weird picture in the corner. On the other hand, the UK cover I find much more pleasant to look at. I like the simple pink, black, and white color scheme. I love the notebook look of it, and I love the font used for it, it's very pretty. Even the pictures don't seem that bad.

The US cover isn't that bad, but it seems a little kid-ish, whereas the UK cover seems more grown up. I think the font on the UK cover is cool, and I love the wing on that cover.

Like with the US cover of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, I don't like US cover of Haunting Violet very much. The only thing I like about it is the title font. The whole tone of the cover bothers me, and the way the girl looks I don't like. The UK cover, I think, looks much prettier. I love the color scheme, and the whole look of the cover. The girl in this cover looks very pretty and a little mysterious, which I love.
