Current Read #9
For this week's currently reading Friday Face-Off, I've gone with the only book I'm currently reading that actually has multiple editions: The Cloisters by Katy Hays! I'm enjoying this one so far, but I'm not sure how it's going to go and I could see things either getting much better or much worse, so I guess time will tell! That being said, I love the covers that are out there for this book, which include the US, UK, and an exclusive Goldsboro clothbound cover. Let's take a look!
2022 US Hardcover
2022 UK Hardcover
2022 Exclusive Goldsboro Edition
I really like all of these covers, actually! I think the US cover is beautiful with its dark coloring that really highlights the title in a somewhat ominous and intriguing way. I also like the skulls and cover on the UK edition, but I'd probably choose the Goldsboro edition of it out of the two because I think the black and white is very dramatic and fits the story a bit better. Which cover(s) do you prefer?
