I’m obsessed with UK cover art.

Just what I needed…more books I want to buy. But they are SO PRETTY. I’ve seen the UK covers for the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas and I adore them but have never really looked at what other covers are out there. I stopped myself before I could fall too deeply down the rabbit hole but thought I’d share some of my findings with you.

This Maggie Stiefvater Wolves of Mercy Falls series box set is glorious. I desperately MUST HAVE IT now. Seriously, I’m not sure I can survive without it.

Just compare the US (which is beautiful too) to the UK versions. I think individually I might like the US one better but that box set? A must have for me.

and then the new US cover…I’m not overly fond of these

And this Forest of Hands & Teeth by Carrie Ryan? It’s pretty but I do like the creepy US covers..

The US covers:

And the book that got me started on my UK cover journey was Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

I need these books. They have them in a box set which I’ve ordered

I recently won the UK versions of Page Morgan’s The Beautiful and the Cursed and The Lovely and the Lost. Both are beautiful and I’m so excited to include them with my US versions. The top are the US covers and the bottom are the UK. I can’t find the UK cover for The Wondrous and the Wicked.

What do you think–Which covers do you tend to prefer or are you like me and want every version of your favorite books?

Lego Cover Art- Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

When the cover for Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers was revealed I was ecstatic. It is absolutely beautiful and portrays the series beautifully. Not only that, but I was confident that it would make a wonderful Lego Cover. It ended up being one of the most time consuming  covers we’ve done but it was well worth it. I hope you enjoy
