Cover Combat: Sophie Kinsella

I do not know about you, but I do judge books by their covers.
In Cover Combat I compare US covers with the Swedish covers of the same books, to see which covers I like the most!

This week the covers of The Undomestic Goddess, Can You Keep a Secret?, Rememer Me? and Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella are being judged.

UK/US covers

Swedish Covers:

This is definitely a Swedish win for me! When you look at the Swedish covers you get the feeling of a fun, light book with a fun and sometimes clumsy heroin - a typical Kinsella book in other words! The only Swedish cover I doesn't like is the third one, but the others are great!

Which covers do you prefer?

Want to see the French covers? Take a look at Brizmus' post!

I'm actually not that keen on the Swedish covers(sorry, I feel like I'm hurting your feelings now ;)). The last one made it look like a steam punk novel of some sort.

I like the Swedish covers, but for me the UK one's win (sorry!) I just love that style cover in general for chick lit.

I like the first two Swedish covers, but not the rest. As for the US, I only like the third Swedish covers totally win. :)

Thanks for linking up to my post! :-)
I actually prefer the US covers. I really don't like that third Swedish cover. I love the 4th one, but I don't feel that it fits with the book. It does look like a book I want to read, though.
And then I guess the first two would be good if I hadn't read the books, but that's just not how I imagined the characters.
