I’m very, very excited because today is the release day for The Crown!! I just finished re-reading The Heir and I think I liked it better the second time around, actually. I thought Eadlyn was a total brat when I first read it, but now I understand her character a lot more.
Let’s talk about the cover.
I think it’s the worst cover in the series (on the left). I was hoping for a gold cover, like this one a fan made (on the right):
I think it’s so much prettier than the actual cover. Notice how the photoshop is done well? The girl on the front of the official one look uncomfortable and the proportions are all wrong. Believe me, I study fashion and I know my proportions. The dress looks wayyyy too big for her body. The top makes it look like she stuffed her boobs! What do you guys think? Do you think the fanmade one is better than the official, too?
The day the cover was revealed I wrote this on Goodreads:
“Haven’t actually read it yet BUT THIS COVER IS SO BAD. What the HELL did they do to it? I can do photoshop better than this… I’m hoping they change it because I’m disgusted….”
My hatred has gone down, but I am still really disappointed by it.
If you are one of the lucky ones who got an arc off of NetGalley, please don’t leave any spoilers about who she ends up with in the comments! I want to be surprised. Personally, I think she should choose Eikko (Erik) or maybe Kile, but I think it would be too obvious. So I’m gonna say I’m rooting for Eikko. I also think Henri is adorable, but I don’t think he and Eadlyn could work out as a couple. Who do you want Eadlyn to end up with?
I’m going to go read now! I’ll probably have finished it by the morning, lol.
