Remember back during Fairy Tale Fortnight when we were all eager for Sarah J Maas' Throne of Glass to come out, and we were waiting with baited breath for the cover to be revealed. And then it was, and we were all like, "Wait - is someone trolling? Where's our badass assassin? Why's she look so...soft? And why does the background - the throne of glass, one assumes - look like a photoshopped photo-negative of the tower of Pisa, or something? I iz disappoint." Since then, it's settled, and I think some have even grown to quite like this cover (maybe?), but that won't stop me from picking at a healing wound...
ON THAT NOTE, I came across the Canadian cover (and likely cover for other countries, I dunno. I just know a Canadian friend was reading it, and I was like, hey, no fair! That's the cover I want!! I'm guessing it's the UK cover.). So here, for your voting pleasure, I give you 2 versions of Throne of Glass, even though I feel like the US cover is going to be mercied by the other... But who knows, I guess I could be proven wrong*.
What do you think? Which would you reach for and which speaks to you, yadda yadda?
Which one did it better?
*I've been told there's a first time for everything...
Last Week on FFO: Black City and Dark Song went head to head, shattered rose to dipping (?) rose, with Black City, erm, shattering the competition.
