Friday Face Off: Hex Hall series


Hex Hall is another one of the books that I wanted to cover for this year's Helluva Halloween, but just wasn't able.  In fact, I was hoping to cover both Hex Hall and sneak in Demon Glass, if I liked them enough.  Oh well, I'm sure I'll get to them sometime.  In the meantime, I thought we'd have a little face off with the US and UK versions of the first two books in the series.  (I would actually have liked to include the spanish and german versions as well, which each have interesting covers - but that was just a few too many choices...)
So, what do you guys think?  Personally, the UK versions remind me of movie posters for The Craft, and I love the split covers on the US version.  How about you?  Which would you reach for on the shelves?
Which one did it better?





Last Week on FFO: The UK and US versions of Jana Oliver's Hex Hall went head to head, with the US version coming out the clear winner.

  1. I totally love the US covers. I keep seeing them & it makes me want to read them even though nothing else about the series really calls to me. But I do NOT like the UK covers. It looks like its trying too hard to be Mean Girls or something.

  2. The US covers hands down. I like the duality of them. The UK covers look too fluffy and just don't pull me to the story the way the US covers do.

  3. I like the US covers. For me the UK covers look way too much like the cover of the movie "The Craft."

  9. US so hard. The UK looks like The Clique with magic, which so does not fit the series.

  10. The US covers for sure. The others look like something I wouldn't even glance at twice on the shelf.

  11. US. You're right about the UK covers being too "The Craft".

  12. US for sure. Don't like the to Disney(not a thing against Disney), sparkly look of the UK covers.
