This week’s cover love is about Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. Firstly, if you haven’t read it, go and read it now! It’s a really beautiful book that has such wonderful prose in it, and everyone should read it. Anyway, this isn’t meant to be an attempt to get everyone on the planet to read this book, so here’s the first cover.
It’s so pretty! It’s quite different from book covers in general, I think, and I really like the fact that it shows one of the main parts of the book. Also, that title is so swirly! There are lots of little details too which look really good, like the handprint and the books at the bottom.
This cover is also really nice. That mask is so awesome, and that was one of my favourite parts of the book. Although I do think that this cover is a little more misleading. I am a fan of the title though – very cool.
Overall, I think I rather the UK cover, but both are so pretty!
What do you think of these covers?
