Current Read #10
This week, only one of the books I'm reading has more than one cover edition and that book is The Weaver and the Witch Queen by Genevieve Gornichec! I read and loved Gornichec's The Witch's Heart last year, so I'm hoping to enjoy this one just as much, and so far so good. I think both covers for this book are beautiful, so let's take a look at them.
2023 US Ace Hardcover
2023 UK Titan Books Paperback
I really like that both covers match the styles of the covers for The Witch's Heart (US and UK). I really like both of these covers and think they match the overall atmosphere of the story well so far. I'm slightly leaning towards the US cover more, but I don't think you can go wrong with either! Which cover do you prefer?

Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Beast You Are by Paul Tremblay, The Weaver and the Witch Queen by Genevieve Gornichec, & The Sea Elephants by Shastri Akella
Can't-Wait is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released! This meme is based off of Jill @ Breaking the Spine's Waiting on Wednesday meme.
This week's upcoming book spotlights are:
I've enjoyed a number of Paul Tremblay's books in the past, so I'm intrigued by a short story collection from him! These sound like they'll be quite a ride.
I adored Gornichec's The Witch's Heart and have no doubt that this is going to be just as beautifully written. I have been a little burnt out on Norse-related stories lately, but I think this one will hit the spot anyway!
