  1. I am so thrilled with the Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor cover. The designer did an EXCELLENT job with the final book in the series.

    I am a bit disappointed with the redesign for Libba Bray’s The Diviner’s though… now my hardcovers won’t match 🙁 Then again, I guess I could always get the newest cover version!
