This week’s theme is: A BOOK STUCK ON MY TBR WHICH I’M GOING TO READ THIS YEAR!  The topic being fairly self-explanatory.

What I loved about this topic was it gave me an excuse to look through my lengthy, organized tbr pile.  (Who am I kidding.  I had to dig around on my cluttered bookshelves out in the garage.)  And it didn’t take me long at all to find the perfect book which I had almost completely forgotten about.

ORIGINAL COVER 

assassins apprentice 4

 

I believe this is the original cover for the book.  It is definitely the one I recall when the novel first came out at my local bookstore back in the mid 1990s.  If I’m wrong, and there is an older one I’d love for someone to link it.

FAVORITE COVERS

There never is really a real “Why” I like a cover.  I just like them or I don’t.  Seldom do I ever learn to like a cover which I initially hated.  So, for whatever reason, these are four covers for Assassin’s Apprentice which I looked at and immediately thought to myself “Cool!”

LEAST FAVORITE COVERS

No real deep reason for labeling these as my least favorite covers.  They jsut didn’t excite me, cause me to go “Wow!” That is a book I have to read.”

So what do you think.  Agree?  Disagree?

    I didn’t like my forary into Hobb’s universe, so I’m pretty biased against any of the covers 🙂

  3. I got my original covered book signed by Robin a few months ago. She admitted she was never a fan of the cover either. But after a few books that was one of the least of her worries when she had all the contract problems. But she is really happy at Del Rey and I really like the new covers they have done. I have never really liked any Whealan covers Except for Eye of the World by Jordan

  4. I’ve always had trouble in confessing that I was not overly taken by this novel: it was a good read, but it did not sweep me away. It’s something of a comfort to learn that I’m not alone in this… 🙂
    Who knows? Someday I might give this series another chance…

  5. I agree about the covers and with the fact I really must get round to reading this book!
