Demon's Lexicon Gets a New Jacket

Sarah Rees Brennan has revealed the new cover the U.S. paperback of The Demon's Lexicon will be sporting come April. It represents a significant shift, I think, in style and focus from the hardback cover. I definitely like it better, though the UK cover remains my favorite. I can't help it. I even ordered my own copy. Love The Book Depository! But at the end of the day they all three have their appeal and how lucky, honestly, for such an awesome book to get three such covers? So here they are, from left to right: UK, US hardback, and US paperback. Which one's your favorite?


  1. Oh how interesting. I'm on the same page as you, Angie. I like the UK cover best ... I think it captures Nick's looks in both style and attitude. However, the upcoming US paperback is a very close second place match. The US hardcover model doesn't capture Nick's persona just right. What I do like about the US hardcover is that it showcases the talisman. This is all in my most humble opinion, of course. ;)

    Well, seeing how I have not read the book. I am basing my opinion on the covers alone. I like the US paperback cover the best. However I do like the UK cover based on art.

  3. UK all the way. I like the new paperback cover better than the old US one, but still not quite what I imagined for Nick.

  4. I haven't read this, but just looking at the cover I really like the UK version the most.

  5. I never liked the picture of Nick with big pouty lips, so I'm glad to see it changed!

  6. I like the UK cover best! For some reason, I don't like seeing real people in cover art. Too bad I have a US hardcover instead of the UK paperback.

  7. Can't say I'm a fan of the paperback cover. It looks like he's trying to pull off some Zoolander face; the sucked-in cheeks are not working.

  8. Bye bye pouty lips! I like the UK version better than all of them, but anything is better than pretty boy.

  9. I definitely prefer the UK cover, too. But the new PB is definitely an improvement over the Harcover, in my opinion!

  10. My vote is for the UK cover,

  11. The US hardback remains my favorite! It's weird - I've been wanting to read this book just because of how much I love the US cover. But now, seeing the US paperback, I'm kind of turned off. It's just terrible!
    I don't know why, but it seems I am different in that I'm not really a fan of the UK cover, either.

  12. I am happy you think it's an improvement - fingers crossed readers will think so too and pick it up!

  13. UK cover is still the best. I have this one in audiobook from the library, so thankfully I don't have to look at the US cover! Sorry Sarah, but your US covers don't do your book justice, though the new one is better than the first.

  14. I don't really like the US paperback one. As was mentioned above, he's doing something weird with his face. It's not attractive. He's standing weird, too. It's all wrong for me. :) I think the UK cover is probably the best, although the US hardback isn't that bad, IMO.

  15. So the UK cover definitely seems to be the consensus so far, you guys. Not that I'm biased or anything...;)

    Brizmus, don't let it turn you off so much that you don't read it! This book is stellar. No matter what jacket it's wearing. :) Grab yourself a U.S. hardback and settle in!

    Sarah, fingers definitely crossed. I personally am incapable of not picking up a book with a dude with a sword on the cover. Hopefully others are like minded. In the meantime, I will keep pimping it here, there, and everywhere. I cannot wait for COVENANT!

    Brenda, the cheeks are a bit...hollow. I agree with you and Chelle. But they kept the ravens, which made me very happy, and they added the sword, which is clearly awesome. I should just go buy myself a copy of each and call it good. Then I'd always have a lending copy available and never have to be without my own.

  16. I think I still like the UK cover best. The US pb isn't bad, just a bit more generic. I ordered the UK version from Book Depository because I didn't like the US hardback cover. Every time I see it I think of the guy on Smallville.

  17. I am not thrilled with the US pb cover, but it is ok enough for me to purchase for my library. I refused to purchase the HB - no way I could booktalk it with a cover like that. I just couldn't *shudder*. I can definitely do the US pb cover and will at my summer reading visits in May.

  18. I definitely haven't read that book but I think I'm gonna give it a try and begin to read only books of my interest like The Demon's Lexicon. I've been told so many things about that book and this times I'm gonna take advantage of this reference.

  19. Oh hell!!! You are just too cool man. I never knew that there could be something better to know about than from this piece of article. I shall have this forwarded to all my friends and even my dad, I am sure they too shall enjoy reading this piece.

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
