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.
