Book Traveling Thursdays: With a new year come new books (#71)

Book Traveling Thursdays is created by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. This weekly meme consists in picking a book related to the weekly theme that is announced in the group Goodreads page (if you want to join click here) at the beginning of each month. After that you can write a blog post where you explain why you choose that book and choose different covers from different countries. To make it a little bit easy you are going to choose different editions of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover.

With a new year come new books… Choose your first read of 2017.

Yay! More reasons to talk about my current-favorite-author! My first read in 2017 was The Indigo Spell from Richelle Mead. It’s the third book in the Bloodlines series, you’ll find a review of it here.

Original cover:

15706116

I don’t exactly like this cover since it has faces on it, and I just kind of can’t stand covers with faces on it. Usually when I read, I have an idea of how the person looks in my head, and most of the time, the person on the cover doesn’t look like my image at all.

Cover from my country (the Netherlands):

9200000030602640

This one still has a real life person on it, but the books before were better (let me just show you quickly)

These covers are (in my opinion) prettier than the original covers, because they are different, but still in the same style.

Favorite cover:

21798658

I’ll admit it, it’s still not that pretty, but it’s literally the only one without real-life-people on it 😦

Least favorite cover (are you ready for it?):

Out of these, the German one is the least worse of them all. But still, yuck. Also, can we talk about how there are like 6 different covers and that’s it? Literally every other country that’s not mentioned here has the same cover as the original one…

I saved the best for the last…. The absolute worst cover:

24375605

I mean…. Honestly?!? What were they even thinking??? This is literally 99% more Rose than it is Sydney to be honest, oh my God.

Anyways, enough ranting, I hope next week I’ll have some better covers for you!

Please tell me you share the same disgust for covers with real-life-people too, I feel like I have no right to imagine my own version of the people in the book…
