Cover Love: “Graceling Series”

I’m currently trying to finish the series. I do have to say that I love, love, love the covers of the books within the series.

Graceling: (l to r) US cover, UK cover, Danish cover

Graceling: Chinese cover, German cover

Fire: US cover, UK cover, German cover

Bitterblue: US cover, UK cover, German cover

I like the US covers but I LOVE the UK covers. Click images to see the source.

So what do you think? Do you like covers? Which is your favorite? If you’re from another country, I’d love to see your covers!

  1. I’m okay with the US covers, but like you said…the UK covers are AMAZING (and totally blew the US covers out of the water, that Graceling cover is so fierce)!

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. I’m a huge fan of the US covers. The UK covers are good, but I don’t like the one for Bitterblue… just doesn’t do it for me. Although I don’t think they go with the series, I love the German covers.

  3. Oh, I love those UK ones! Katsa looks awesome. So does Fire. I’m making my way through Bitterblue…I’m really liking it so far! She’s sure got a lot to figure out!

  4. I’ve seen these books in the shops, but never thought to pick them up no matter how good the cover looked. Now I am even more curious to find out if they are any good. The covers themselves- I Prefer the US Graceling cover, but the UK Fire cover. The US Graceling has some great colouring. As for Bitterblue, I don’t like any of them.

  5. It’s interesting to see how different countries interpret the story and make it into covers, isn’t it? I find the UK ones more powerful, more eye-catching. THe US ones are nice, but agree the UK ones are best.

  6. (I’ve got the ebook for Graceling but I still haven’t read it! Eek.)

    I find it fascinating that all the US ones have objects, and all the UK ones have a person. I’m assuming the US is doing the Twilight sort of thing (also de-girling it for boy readers?) but the UK ones are just so much cooler. I love how they’ve got the WHOLE person on there, and that she’s not passively sitting around or something.

    That said, what’s up with the hair, Germans? 😛

    • GO READ IT NOW. I procrastinated on reading it too and hated myself a bit for not picking it up sooner.

      That’s a very interesting point. I can totally understand the de-girling.

      Yeah the hair is a bit odd. It makes sense for Fire but not so much for the others.

  7. Ha ha, me as a truly European loved only the covers on the right hand side xDDD
    I have an off topic question, is English in HUnger Games the same as in Percy Jackson or more difficult?

    • It’s a bit more difficult but not much. Percy Jackson is written for kids 10 and up. The Hunger Games is probably for ages 13 and up. I don’t think the language is TOO hard though.
