COVER LOVE: The Replacement by Brenna Yavanoff

Here I am with another edition of COVER LOVE. This week's choice is THE REPLACEMENT by Brenna Yavanoff. I know this cover has been around for a few month's but I just noticed the UK cover addition and now I am a bit undecided. I LOVE the creepy US cover and although I have not read the story yet I think it sets a certain tone.
Now this is the UK cover. I think it still is mysterious and a bit other wordly but creepy, no. So what do you think? Which cover would get your attention? What would cause you to buy it or shy away from it all together. My curious mind wants to know

US cover. No contest. Sorry. The creep factor just isn't there in teh UK version.

US cover hands down (which I have in ARC format). I would never have picked up this book had it been the UK cover I saw first. I don't like people on my covers.

I love the US cover. I was drawn to the book because of how creepy the cover is. I would probably still be drawn toward the UK cover but there is no comparison between the two.

Us cover for sure. It's orignal! I love it. :) You don't see that creep factor in books too much.

US, hands down. It's very creepy and would definitely catch my eye.

US cover for sure! I hate seeing faces on covers and I don't really like the font used on the UK cover either.

For the creepy factor, I'd go with the US cover. For the level of intrigue, probably UK. I like them both!

I almost always prefer the UK cover but this time the US cover wins hands down. It's so wonderfully creepy

I have to admit, this is one of the first times that I prefer the U.S. cover to a U.K. cover. Usually it's the other way around.

Because of the creepiness, I would definitely pick up the first one. I would stray from the second because it looks like a typical supernatural to me and I hate typical.

My godchild thought that the US cover was cool and creepy but once she saw the UK cover her hormones kicked in and she was all about the dude on the cover. LOL

I would probably read the US, because it is kind of creepy and it draws you in asking the question "What is 'this'book about?" LOL just a thought, good reads actually had a giveaway for this one, so i've had my eye on it for quit some time.

US cover without a doubt, I love originality in cover design and have a HUGE pet peeve with faces and people on covers!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
