BOOK TRAVELING THURSDAYS

 

book-traveling-thursday2

 

The concept of this is that every Thursday there is a theme and the bloggers who participate in this group take that theme and pick a book that they associate with the theme. From this the bloggers find and post different covers of the book they have chosen.

If you wish to know more or join in please feel free to have a look at their Goodreads Page.

The theme for this week is:

FAVOURITE COVERS: 

 

 

*The first cover is the Italian edition. What I like about this cover is that it has really subtle colours and while it is not a bright, eye catching cover, there is something about it that just draws you in.

*The second cover is the U.K. edition. This is the edition available in my country. This is in total contrast to the other covers as it is bright and eye catching. This absolutely works. The text is bold and stands out. The images tie into the text.

*The third cover is the German edition. This is another subtle cover that interests me. I love that the cover is basically a huge bookcase and the spaces of the bookcase make out the silhouette of a head.

*The fourth cover is the Ukranian edition. The blue detailing is a little different but what really caught my attention was the fact that there is so much going on if the reader just takes the time to fully examine the cover.

LEAST FAVOURITE COVERS: 

 

 

*The first cover is the Czech edition. The cover is just a little bland for me. I can’t really see anything on the cover except for the text.

*The second cover is the Bulgarian edition. In all truth, this cover just isn’t for me. It just looks like there were two different ideas for the cover and so each idea got half the cover.

*The third cover is the Turkish edition. I can see what was trying to be done with the store front, but I don’t think it really worked in my opinion. With other fabulous covers for this book this one just stood out as a lessor cover.

As always, I am happy to talk to anyone about this weeks theme and the chosen covers. I will be back next Thursday for another Book Travelling Thursdays Post.

 

Keep Calm and Read On,
