Current Read 

This week I've started reading Bone Shard War by Andrea Stewart, and since it's not out yet and there are not any additional editions of it on Goodreads yet, I figured I would share some editions of the first book in the trilogy, Bone Shard Daughter! There only seem to be three main designs out there, so let's check them out. 

2020 US Hardcover 

2021 French

2021 US Paperback

My choice(s):
I think these are all great covers! I'm really a fan of the original US hardcover edition, though I also love the way the red pops in the paperback edition. I definitely prefer the US editions over the French one, but I do still find the French one to be a great design! What do you think?


  1. I agree that the French design is nice, but I also prefer the US design. It is so intricate!

  2. This is tough, I love all three. This is my first time seeing the French editionšŸ˜
