Cover Face-Off: Throne of Glass

August 8, 2013

Welcome to Cover Face-Off, a new feature where we pit two covers of the same book against one another to determine which one is the best!  Feel free to use whatever criteria you want: which one represents the book best, which one is more likely to attract readers, or even which one you think is prettiest.

Our first competitors are the two covers of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.  For some background, here’s the blurb: “After she has served a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, Crown Prince Dorian offers eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien her freedom on the condition that she act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.”

And here are the covers:

In my humble opinion, the one on the right is EASILY the winner!  It definitely says “I’m a hardened assassin” way more than the one on the left, where all I can focus on is how pretty her hair is.

Laurie just recently posted the British book cover design for Wintergirls which looks way different from the U.S. version. I like it, but I feel it gives the book a COMPLETELY different vibe. What do you think? Which do you think represents the book better?
