I just finished Graceling by Kristin Cashore and I completely loved it. I'm going to have to wait a few days to write a proper review because when I fall in love with a book and with characters the way I did with Katsa and Po I find it nearly impossible to say anything but "you must read this now!" But really you must!
Sometimes I never get over that stage and find it impossible to be objective, which explains the near divorce when my husband called Looking For Alaska incredibly boring and refused to finish it. I was mystified but then he is mystified that I never finished Catch 22 and we're both astonished that our parents didn't like Saturday by Ian McEwan.
Anyway I digress, instead of a review I'm comparing covers. I have a terrible habit of judging books by their covers. Also being British when I go home I'm always comparing the Uk/US covers. Usually I prefer the US, I certainly do in this case. I think the US cover is just perfect and beautiful. What do you think?
