It’s time for another Judge A Book By Its Cover, our segment on MP! to lust over pretty covers and reveal just how horribly shallow bookish folk can be. Yay!

Today, we’re looking at what you lot thought of ‘Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer’ by Rick Riordan – a blazing cover sure to stand out in bookshelves. We got a lot of good vibes from this cover – but what did you think?

And after so many lovely compliments for this fierce cover, we were shocked to find this controversial tweet (you can bet your hardback we dropped our tea over this):

John Rocco illustrated the alternative US cover for ‘Magnus Chase’

And then @booksablog & @wisegirlhessa reminded us of what’s really important: how flipping amazing ‘Magnus Chase’ is going to be regardless of which cover you pick up.
