Cover Combat: Along For the Ride

Along For the Ride is the first Sarah Dessen book that is being translated into Swedish. The Swedish book is called Mycket mer än så (Much more than that) and will be released in June.

But which country wins the Cover Combat, USA or Sweden? You decide!

US cover:

Swedish cover:

My thoughts: To be honest, I've never been a fan of the US cover, but I think it's fitting to the story. The Swedish cover definitely has a summery feeling to it, but there's nothing special about it. If I have to choose, I'll pick the Swedish cover because I like the colors!

Which cover do you prefer?

I like em' both but I think the Swedish one is the cutest one. Such a summer feel to it :)

there is somewhat aggressive in the first, but it's adequate. I also prefer the Swedish cover because the typeface is more readable and the atmosphere is summer^^

I was going to say "If I had to choose, I'd pick the US cover, because I like the colors." And then you said that EXACT same phrase with Swedish replacing US.
Really, though, I like em both. It hink the shorts in the Swedish one are kinda weird looking, though.

I haven't read this one yet, but it is definitely on my list. Like you, I'm not a big fan of the US cover. I kinda like the Swedish cover a little better. The colors grab my attention and I love the summery feeling to it! =)

I think the US cover suits the story, so I gotta go with US.
