Current Read #21

I've been working my way through Emily Wilde's Map of the Otherlands by Heather Fawcett (sequel to Emily Wilde's Encylopaedia of Faeries) and I'm absolutely loving it. This series has been such a delight and I can't recommend it enough. There are only two editions of this book to share, but I really like both of them so figured it would be worth it to have a look at both of them. 

2024 Del Rey US Edition

2024 Orbit UK Edition

My choice(s):
I really love the style of the US editions! I have the UK Fairyloot edition of the first book, but I'd actually really like to get my hands on the US edition as well someday. I also like the UK edition, though, and think it also fits so well with the vibe of the book and has so many fun little details to it. Which edition (if either) do you prefer?


  1. These are both so pretty and I think it would depend on my mood which one I would pick!

  2. This is tough, both covers work really well for the story, but I think I slightly prefer the US cover.
