The Passage - Justin Cronin - UK v US Cover


Completely different covers. UK: Amazing, gloomy, mysterious, dark, edgy. US:
"Mommy can I go on the conputer" says the three year old sitting by his mac.
"Sure thing sweety pie"
"Thanks mommy" He types into google 'Pretty Woods'. He finds a picture of Bland trees that are blue with a bit of yellow in the middle and thinks 'Ooooh thats pretty' but really its not. After all he's just a kid. He wants to put some writing on but he's young so he cant make it look good. He just mashes on the words THE PASSAGE A NOVEL JUSTIN CRONIN. It looks very bad but he thinks its good. Also the cover has no relevance to what it's suposed to be about.

The UK cover has that sort of edgy dark feel to it. The fact that it is shiny adds the darkness because at night, curtains closed lying in bed lamp on you look at the bookshelf and you see this shiny reflective girl with mourning dark eyes. Creepy. This is what I mean by SHINY:


See what I mean. TOTALLY creepy. It's generally better and suits the book more whereas the US looks like a toddlers has found a picture and stuck some lousy writing on you see. I hate the US cover and I would never pick it up in a shop and if I knew it was an amazing (like I did before I managed to get my hands ona signed copy) I would have got the UK covered one from an online store. I really just think the US cover is bad apart from the 'A NOVEL' bit. I love the way that although the UK cover is CREEEEEEPY it has the white writing saying 'Something is coming' It's awesome.

Overall I luuurv the UK cover the Best. :) Well done ORION books you have created a rockin' cover.

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court – but at a steep cost.

As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms – and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future – and the future of a world cleaved in two.

It has been a long time since I've loved a book as much this. A court of mist and fury is by far the best book that I have read in 2016 so far, and easy surpassed it's predecessor a court of thorn and roses.

The plot of this was so incredibly per…

Apologies and Explanations

Okay guys, we need to talk and by that I mean I have some apologies and explaining to do to you. So as you've more than obviously noticed I've been extremely inactive this year, even after promising I'd try to be more active. So now I'm going to explain why. By no means have I abandoned the blog nor do I want to. I seriously love this blog so much and connecting with you all and sharing my love for books and reading with you all. In fact it's really frustrating for me to be unable to devote the amount of time I'd like to to this blog. So to reader, authors and publishers, I'm insanely sorry for my lack of presence. Anyway apologies aside let me explain why it's been this way. Last September I started my first year of A levels and quite honestly I had no idea the amount of time they'd take up in my life and they did take up way loads of time. I found that not only did I have no time write blog posts but I had no time to read either, unless you count…
