Lo-Melkhiin killed three hundred girls before he came to her village, looking for a wife. When she sees the dust cloud on the horizon, she knows he has arrived. She knows he will want the loveliest girl: her sister. She vows she will not let her be next.
So far I've heard mixed things about this. It's a One Thousand and One Nights retelling that I have yet to read but certainly will. I read The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, which is another One Thousand and One Nights retelling that was released earlier this year and I loved it. But I've heard not to compare it to A Thousand Nights because while they have the same premise, they are complete opposites.
Now to the covers...
It's definitely the US cover (left) for me. The UK edition (right) is pretty, the colors eye-catching, but I think the US edition is gorgeous. It's more detailed, I love the typography and the colors, that girl in her pretty dress, and the words that surround the title which I think makes up a sentence (not sure since I can't read some of the them). It's a cover that you can relate to the story.
BUT. Have you seen the hardcover UK edition in person? It freaking looks like this:

WHY? Why are you doing this to us? If I have to choose which physical copy to buy I am most probably going with the UK edition just because I think it's worth my money. If I'm rich I'm going to buy both ;D
Which is your favorite cover? When buying physical copies of books do you consider things like if a hardcover is worth it? Do you care about covers or editions, or do you just buy everything 'cause it's hard to choose?
