Cover Wars: One Book, Multiple Covers, You Decide…
Book: Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Thanks for nominating this book, Rachel!

Book covers have undergone an evolution! Gone are the days of plain Jane book covers. Today, covers have enough pizzazz and style to rival artistic master pieces. But with so many beautiful covers to choose from who can decide the fairest of them all? Cover Wars allows our members to view one book, its various international covers, and then decide their favorite. It’s our way of slowly finding the creme dela crème of book covers.

[IMPORTANT] If you find that you are having an especially hard time voting for your favorite cover then feel to comment your top five picks. Also, if you have a particular book that you would like to see in next month’s Cover Wars then shoot me a message or leave a comment.
