“When she was a child, the witch locked her away in a tower that had neither doors nor stairs.”
This weeks theme: A cover featuring a tower.
I made the mistake of blog hopping before writing my post today and I saw that both The Bibliosanctum and Books, Bones, and Buffy chose Uprooted this week. I LOVE Uprooted and now I really want to use that as my choice, but I had only ever seen one cover and didn’t realize there was a tower on that cover, and I never would have chosen it myself. So, I will choose something else but I want to give a shout out too those two for their awesome book choice!

There are a LOT of covers for this book! I didn’t even include them all! I picked the first 28 unique ish ones from goodreads. There are a lot of good ones, but here are my 4 favorites:
It is super hard to pick just one!! I really like all four and they are all really different! I think I am going to have to go with the third one, because it feels the most Tolkien-eske, but the fourth one is a close second.
Which one do you like best? I included the publishers this week because there are so many covers! Have you read The Two Towers?
Update: Book Wraiths and Every Day Should Be Tuesday also chose The Two Towers! (I promise I didn’t see their posts before I picked it!) Go check out their posts too! They both featured some really cool covers that aren’t listed above! I think my new favorite is one that Book Wraith’s found:
