Battle of the Covers #3 – Throne of Glass

  Battle of the Covers is a new feature in the blog wherein I judge books by their covers, literally. Here, I will compare two or more covers of the books in their different editions, judge which one I prefer, and leave a poll for people to vote in. In the next post, another cover will be discussed, plus the results of the poll will be announced.

  This week’s book is Throne of Glass, a recent discovery of mine. I just finished reading this book, and I absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to read the next books in the series, and I think Sarah Maas might be added to my favorite authors soon!

  Cover #1 makes Celaena look like a weak, princess-y girl, and I totally disapprove. Cover #4 looks like it has something to do with winter. While it is pleasing to the eyes, I wouldn’t pick it up if I pass it by. It is down to Cover #2 and Cover #3, in which Celaena looks badass in both covers, which I love. I think I love Cover #2 when looked at as a series, but I love Cover #3 individually. Luckily, it’s the version that I own.

Final Verdict: Cover #3

Battle of the Covers #2 – Mistborn: The Final Empire

  Battle of the Covers is a new feature in the blog wherein I judge books by their covers, literally.

  For this week, the book that I chose was Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. It’s a book that I’ve been wanting to read, and I had no idea that it had so many covers!

  Cover #1 looks kind of interesting for me, but I won’t pick it up. Cover #2 just creeps the crap out of me. Cover #3 is really pretty, especially when put side by side with the rest of the trilogy. Cover #4 is just easy to overlook for me. I like cover #5, however I would think that it’s an MG book at first glance. It’s a battle between cover #3 and cover #5, but when I think about how the collection will look on my shelf, cover #3 is the clear winner. I love the clean, minimalist feel of it and it just looks amazing! I wish I can have that cover over here in the Philippines!

Final Verdict: Cover #3

Battle of the Covers #1

  Battle of the Covers is a new feature in the blog wherein I judge books by their covers, literally. Here, I will compare two or more covers of the books in their different editions, judge which one I prefer, and leave a poll for people to vote in. In the next post, another cover will be discussed, plus the results of the poll will be announced.

  For my first Battle of the Covers feature, I chose A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab, a book that has been having a lot of hype especially in booktube. Here are the two covers:

  1                                 2 

  I think cover #1 is the more well-known cover because it’s the one that I’ve been seeing around lately. However, when I first saw the cover, it was easy for me to overlook the cover because I didn’t understand the illustration at first glance. The second cover, however, looks very mysterious and interesting, and black and red became such a great combination. I can definitely see Kell in the silhouette of the man in the cover. Although the first one looks more like it has something to do with parallel universes, I can’t help but be compelled by the second one.

Final Verdict: Cover #2
