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.
March 9th – Yesterday was International Women’s Da.y. Choose a book with a strong female MC.
I’m going with the Millennium series, because I love it and if there’s one strong female in a book series, it’s Lisbeth Salander.
This book is originally Swedish, the title translates to “Men Who Hate Women”, and I honestly think that’s the best title for this book. You’ll understand why if you’ve read it 🙂
Cover from my country (the Netherlands):
Also the literal translation from the original title.
The reason this is my favorite is because they’ve used a frame from the original movie and I loved it so much, I can’t not like this cover to be honest. Besides, this was one of the few movies where the actors really looked like what I imagined them when I read the books!
Least favorite cover:
The reason why this is my least favorite cover is not because there’s real life people on it (not this time, haha). The point is, that these are the actors from the American movie, and I honestly don’t even want to see it. Maybe if one day, I’m really bored I’ll watch it, but my experience with non-America movies and series so far is that when they make an American remake, it almost always worse than the original. And because I loved the original movies so much, I’m afraid to watch the America remakes haha
If you are interested, you can read my review of the books here 🙂
