Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

Cover Crazy/Mouth Watering Monday: Across The Universe


Isn't it pretty? I love it!

I like:
  • The font. I really love it! (if anyone knows where I can download it, tell me!)
  • The colour scheme. Gorgeous
  • The tagline "What does it take to survive a spaceship fuelled by lies?" How awesome!
  •  The sparkly stars. I like all things shiny!
  • Pretty much everything!
I dislike:

5 Stars


It falls flat for me. Yes it is still gorgeous but with the stars missing it feels a little naked.

4 Stars


  1. Wow, great post! I actually paid more attention to the cover now and OMG! It's gorgeous! I love everything about it too!<3

  3. In this case I like the first cover so much better. The second cover is just bland with too much negative space. The stars are deal maker.

  4. I LOVE THIS COVER!!! Like seriously its one of my favorite covers ever. Plus you forgot to point out that the cover is actually reversible! When you turn it inside out its blue and has the map of the ship on it. Apparently its like a girly side for Amy and a more guyish side for Elder. How awesome is that? And I agree that the UK version just isn't as good. It feels empty without the stars.

  5. I agree! What's up with the UK cover not including the stars!? :(
    Also, take a look at the face of the boy--in the UK cover, he's shaped differently! You can see more of his ethnicity in the UK cover, which I like. Still, the lack of pretty stars makes it pale in comparison to the US cover.

  6. Deea: Thanks :) I love everything too! So pretty :)

    Gina: The stars are a deal breaker for me too!

    Julia: Oh, I did! I completely forgot. I love that it is reversible!

    Lauren: I didn't notice the face thing until now. It is a very subtle difference but I agree. It is a nice touch.

  7. I agree, this cover is awesome! I like the US version best. :) I can't wait to read the book, I'm hoping to start soon!

  8. The book is awesome too! Get reading! keep your eyes peeled for my review on Wednesday!

  9. Omg I didn't even notice the stars were missing from the UK cover xP But yeah, when you mention it it's definitely a little naked and less magical!

  10. Definitely less magic! I don't understand why they did that!

  11. I don't understand why they removed the stars in the UK version. It looks incomplete. The stars are so beautiful and sparkly in this cover. I love it!

  12. I definitely agree! It looks unfinished!

  13. The UK cover isn't nearly as nice as the US one. Those stars really make a difference. :D

  14. You wouldn't think it but they really do! I am glad I have the hardcover!

  15. I agree! Give me the stars! (They kind of make it like a pretty optical illusion :)

  16. Definitely! A very pretty optical illusion :)
