It’s Thursday and time for another Book Traveling Thursday. This weekly meme was created by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Visit their Goodreads group to learn more about Book Traveling Thursday 🙂
The rules are to share covers related to the weekly theme where you include the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite, and your least favorite. I’ve decided to go for a top 3 and bottom 3 arrangement, because that’s more fun and I get to showcase more covers.
This week’s theme is “an underhyped book”
I own a lot of books that I don’t see people talking about often, but the thing is I haven’t read most of them yet 😄 So I don’t know, I’m just going to go with More Than This by Patrick Ness. It’s by no means underhyped or underrated, but I just wish I saw more people talking about it. When people talk about Patrick Ness they usually mention the Chaos Walking series or A Monster Calls. But More Than This is definitely my favorite of the ones I’ve read by him.
I love this one, even though it hurts the eye a little bit. My favorite thing about it is that the yellow door with the title is not actually on the front cover, it’s a cut out hole.
COVER FROM NORWAY
Once again, I’m pretty sure only A Monster Calls has been translated into Norwegian 😦
TOP 3 FAVORITE COVERS
There weren’t that many different ones to choose from, at least not on Goodreads (I can’t be bothered to google to see if there are more lmao), but I managed to find a top 3.
The original one of course, because I love the cut-out.
And then the Japanese one(s). They’ve split this novel into volume 1 and 2, and this is the cover of volume 2, I decided to just show one of them even though I like both. I don’t know, I like the colors and the font, even if it looks like a manga. It’s intriguing.
The Hungarian cover is very simple, but like the original one, a simple cover contributes in keeping this book a mystery. I love the power button.
BOTTOM 3 COVERS
Oh Russia. You did so well last week, but here we are again. The only thing I like about this is the rainbow (shout-out to Seth and Gudmund?) Other than that it’s just a mess. This book might be a bit surreal, but this is too surreal. And the font is horrible.
I appreciate what the Chinese cover is trying to do, but to me it looks too messy and choppy.
And I don’t hate the German one, but since I’ve decided to do a top 3 and bottom 3 each week I just had to pick one, so I landed on this because it looks too contemporary (this book is sci-fi). I’d like it if it belonged to a contemporary coming-of-age type book.
What do you think of these covers? Which one’s your favorite and least favorite?
