Thursday Throw Down is an original feature created here at booklife4life. I created this feature because it seems with everything book related, there's always two ways to see it :)
Each week I will provide two "contenders" and you will decide the winner :) Write a post supporting your choice and link it back to here and add yourself to the Link-In so everyone can see! If you don't have time to create a post, just place your vote in the comment section! :)
I will "tally" up the votes and announce the winner along with a randomly selected blog post supporting that winner on the following TTD.
The Dauntless value the virtue of bravery over any other, as such they train to fight and use weapons to prepare their bodies to respond to threats and challenges, which is necessary if they want to survive life as a Dauntless member. The faction also emphasizes the idea of freedom from fear, and test this daily by attempting death-defying feats.
Abnegation value the virtue of selflessness over any other. Abnegation initiates are forced upon attaining membership to reject a life of vanity and self-indulgence, in theory to protect themselves from greed and envy (considered forms of selfishness). Gossiping, using a mirror for long periods of time, and buying luxury items are forbidden. As Abnegation members, the focus of their lives will be in serving others instead of themselves: anything done for self-enjoyment is discouraged. Abnegation are usually very quiet, as they don't like to call attention to themselves and find joy in helping others.

Personally, I prefer the American cover. I like the use of the glass slipper and the hint of robotics underneath the skin. This is the first cover I saw and it really intrigued me. I grabbed this book up the instant I first saw it on a shelf in the store. It conveys the idea of a new twist on an old fairytale.
The Czech cover (while stunning) doesn't give me the same feeling. The full moon and the witchy kind of outfit doesn't say Cinderella to me at all.
Like always you can either comment your answer below or join the link up with your own blog post explaining your decision.
