Hello Fellow Readers,

I hope you are well and getting ready for the weekend.

Thank you so much for your support for my previous Let’s Judge A Book By Its Cover posts. I will do my best to run it on a biweekly basis.

In case you haven’t seen my previous posts, on Let’s Judge A Book By Its Cover, I will present a book and various covers from around the world. I will also offer a few comments and tell you why you should pick this book.

Also, I want to clarify that this kind of post is not meant to be in any way “judgemental” against any cover, but simply another way to promote, recommend books and discuss their covers.

This week I decided to dedicate this post to one of my favourite series ever, Throne of Glass. You may recognise the cover of the first book with this one:

Its very first cover actually looked like this:

If your copy has a real model in the cover and not the drawing, you may actually be in possession of an unicorn and rare copy, as the original cover is sold for crazy amounts on B/S/T groups and super requested. Alternatively, you may know this series for the paperback/UK version and the art on the front, which is the one that attracted me to read this story in the first place:

I hope you know the story, but if you don’t, here’s the synopsis:

Synopsis:

In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom. If she defeats twenty-three killers, thieves, and warriors in a competition, she is released from prison to serve as the king’s champion. Her name is Celaena Sardothien.

The Crown Prince will provoke her. The Captain of the Guard will protect her. But something evil dwells in the castle of glassβ€”and it’s there to kill. When her competitors start dying one by one, Celaena’s fight for freedom becomes a fight for survival, and a desperate quest to root out the evil before it destroys her world.

Covers from around the world:

Are you ready to see what our Celaena looks like around the world? This time I’ll share them by language:

Polish:

I am personally in love with the Polish cover, that gaze is so magnetic and powerful, but even the Persian cover is stunning. It’s not a secret that Throne of Glass is one of my favourite series ever and I will always cherish it in my heart. Sarah J. Maas is a well renowned writer, so I’m sure you have at least once heard about this series – or actually devoured it. If you haven’t I will give you more reasons why you should pick it up:

  • Throne of Glass? Like actual glass? That must be uncomfortable. How does it work? Does it have a cushion? Don’t you want to find out why they didn’t go to Ikea?
  • The colours of each cover are different, but almost all of them have one thing in common. Those cold and calculating eyes, almost like they can see right through you. Who is this girl? Why does she look so angry? If you are dying of curiosity to know her story, you should definitely read it.
  • And if you don’t know Celaena, just looking at the covers, you can easily assume she must be a badass. In every single book cover she is armed with swords or daggers, and she seems quite proficient with both. You can’t miss a fantasy story with such an intriguing and mysterious kickass girl as main protagonist.

Have you read this series? Which cover do you prefer?

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you haven’t already, I hope you will decide to add this to your TBR.
