Cover vs. Cover [14]

Cover vs. Cover is a weekly feature, hosted here, where I compare different covers of the same book. For more information, visit the Weekly Features page.

This week's competing covers are:

           The US Cover                                    The UK Cover

US. The UK cover isn't bad on its own, but to me it pales in comparison. I like the faded background with vintage vines and flowers because it really gives the feeling of an old-timey fantasy. I also like the sword and the eye on the blade. But one thing I like about the UK cover is the snow in the background, because it represents a journey that takes place in Graceling.

**On an unrelated note, I'm glad I picked Graceling for this week because I haven't read it in over a year and it's nice to think about it again.

  1. I have to admit that I really like the UK cover of this one. I just think that it is much more striking. The US one just doesn't stand out for me.


I read and appreciate every comment, so thank you in advance!
