The Cruel Prince Blog Tour: Favorite Covers with Crowns!


Hey everyone, today I'm sharing my favorite book covers with crowns on them as part of a giveaway for The Cruel Prince hosted by NOVL! Be sure to check out all of the goodies below, especially the awesome giveaway!




The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Pub. Date: January 2nd, 2018
Buy Links: Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Book Depository
By #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, the first book in a stunning new series about a mortal girl who finds herself caught in a web of royal faerie intrigue.

Of course I want to be like them. They're beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him—and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

Holly Black is the bestselling author of contemporary fantasy novels, including Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale and the #1 New York Times bestselling Spiderwick series. She has been a finalist for the Mythopoeic Award and the Eisner Award, and the recipient of the Andre Norton Award. Holly lives in Massachusetts with her husband, Theo, in a house with a secret library.

  1. Iread The Cruel Prince a few days ago, and I loved it. It's a quite fierce book, no one is completely blameless, or innocent, or well-behaved, the interesting morals alone are worth the read, and it's got plenty more to love!
    I like the Red Queen covers, in addition to thos you mentioned above-, they're all gorgeous, tbh.

    (P.S: I'm guessing the giveaway is USA or US/CAN only, but I'm not seeing the country elligibility req. anywhere, but maybe it's me, I don't trust myself to find anything, I'm such a bad hufflepuff)

  2. I am currently waiting to read this book, I have it on hold at my local library. The premise sounds so interesting and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I loved reading your review of the book, and it got me even more excited to read this book.
    I love all the covers you shared with crowns on the cover and I also enjoy the Red Queen covers, they are gorgeous and I catch myself staring at them all the time. Thanks for sharing your review.

  6. What a beautiful post! I can't say I'm a fan of crowns on covers (mostly bc Red Queen's numerous crowns has ruined it for me, LOL), but I love the ones you featured - especially Reign of the Fallen! What a tantalizing cover. And I really enjoyed The Cruel Prince! Wonder what the next book's cover will look like...

  12. I have been hearing so much about this book lately and I am so excited to read it! I just realized that the books that you have featured are all still sitting on my TBR and two of them are on my physical shelves. Man. I need to get on that! It sounds like a fantastic new series that I am sure to love. :)

  13. I LOOOVE the covers you featured! Three Dark Crowns has THREE unique crowns that are all super intriguing and fit the book so well. Ash Princess is so dark yet elegant. Reign of the Fallen is just so pink and pretty and girly.

    I've already read The Cruel Prince. I liked it well enough, although not as much as other people!

  18. I've been hearing so much about this book, I haven't read any of Holly Black's books yet but I seriously need to get started on her work! I really like crowns aesthetically, but now that I'm thinking about it I can't think of too books I've read with crowns on the cover - odd and kind of sad actually. XD

  19. Oh wow, this is a wonderful post. I have been hearing such good reviews about this book, I really need to just go and buy this book. I love all the covers you have mentioned, Ash Princess may be my favourite!

  22. I would like so much to read this book! It has been on my TBR for a while but seeing so many people praising it makes it hard to wait.

  23. Crowns are always a welcome addition to any cover. :D Some other good covers with crowns are Red Queen/War Storm (Victoria Aveyard), The Traitor Prince (C.J. Redwine), Stars Above (Marissa Meyer) for that reason, in addition to the ones you have listed here. I adored The Cruel Prince! Book two seriously could not come soon enough.

    Not entering the giveaway but thank you for the chance and good luck to all!

    Have a fantastic week, Brittany. =)

  26. Reign of the Fallen is gorgeous and so eye-catching, but I definitely love The Cruel Prince the most. I have an e-book of it, but I'm tempted to get the hardcover for my bookshelf. I hope the next two are amazing too!
