US // UK
Michelle Harrison's 13 Curses is published in the US in a couple of weeks (I hope you're all excited!) and look at the lovely cover they've given it. Now, while I really do like it (I do, I think it's beautiful), I don't think it can beat the UK edition. This one is my favourite of all the UK covers, and it looks even better in person. It has lots of shiny bits dotted around the amazingly designed '13', making it look magical and fit for even the most royal of fairies.
The US edition is definitely darker than I expected it to be, but I don't think that's a bad thing. The books get darker as they go on (13 Secrets is the darkest of them all, but oh so good!), and I think it will look fantastic in person. I'm hoping it's as shiny as the US 13 Treasures, as that one really stood out to me (and I prefer it to the UK cover).
So what do you guys think? I wouldn't care if these books came bundled in a black plastic bag - they'd still have pride of place on my shelf. They're amazing, and their various covers do the job of adding to that.
