Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme hosted by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Each week there is a different theme and you must pick a book that goes along with that theme. Once you have a book in mind, your post will be centered around the different covers of that particular book. Firstly, you should explain why you think the book you picked goes with the theme. Then you will show the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover. For more information, check out the Goodreads group.

This week there is no theme – you’re able to pick whichever book you want to! I decided to go with Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. Not only is this one of my favorite books, but it also has some awesome covers!

Second Chance Summer

Favorite Covers

SCS Favorites

I actually have three favorite covers for this book! My absolute favorites are the original cover and the one in the middle (the second UK edition published). But I also really like the fun and vibrant cover on the right (the first UK edition published)!

Least Favorite Cover

SCS3 Dutch

I just don’t care for this cover at all! I mean, I guess the picture they used isn’t too bad but it’s nothing special either. What I really dislike is the orange background surrounding the title. The orange really clashes with the rest of the cover! I also don’t like the font they used. They really should have just used the original cover for this edition!

Since this week is a freebie, I decided to look back at the previous themes and pick one I didn’t already do. The one I went with was from February 26th of this year and it says to “choose a book that deserves more love.” I ended up picking Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor. Now, this book wasn’t absolutely perfect but I ended up really, really enjoying it! It deals with time travel and it had characters that I really grew to love.


Original Cover / My Country’s Cover

Into the Dim (Original)

Favorite Cover

Into the Dim (ARC)

This is definitely my favorite cover of this book! It was the cover on the original ARC (which I have) and according to Goodreads, it’s also the Kindle cover. I like this cover A LOT better than the hardcover edition!

Least Favorite Cover

Into the Dim (Original)

Yep, this is the original hardcover edition. I just really don’t like this cover at all! I especially dislike the color scheme and typography.

Since the Oscars is coming up soon, this week’s theme is to choose a book that you would like to see as a movie. Sometimes with books, I think they’re better as books. But other times, I read a book and could easily see it as a movie. For this post, I’m going to have to go with Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I think there was some talk about this book becoming a movie but I’m not sure what’s happening with that. Either way, it would make a great movie!


Original Cover / My Country’s Cover

Favorite Cover

Ready Player One

My favorite cover is most definitely the first US paperback edition. I really liked how it showed the trailers stacked on top of each other! When this was described in the book, it was hard for me to picture it (I had the original hardcover from the library) so when I saw this cover, it made a lot more sense!

Least Favorite Cover

Until I started this post, I had no idea how many editions of this book there actually were! According to Goodreads, there are 93 editions! I didn’t look at all of them but out of the ones I looked at, this one is definitely my least favorite. It’s the Turkish edition and I just really don’t like it at all!

Since this is the last Thursday of the month and the new year is coming up fast, this week’s theme is to pick a book that you want to read in 2017. It seems like my TBR is never-ending so there are a lot of books that I want to read next year. However, I had to pick only one and I decided to go with The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve heard nothing but excellent things about this book and the series in general so I’m really looking forward to finally reading it next year!

I’m not sure which of these two covers I like more but I definitely like them both! The one on the left is the original cover and the one on the right is the US paperback cover.

These are all just really bad covers. The cover on the left is the French edition, the one in the middle is the Bulgarian edition, and the one on the right is the Russian edition.

This week’s theme is to pick a book that you believe could become a classic. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley. This historical fiction novel takes place in 1959 and centers around two girls on opposites sides of the civil rights battle – who end up falling for each other. It’s an extremely important story and a very good one as well! If you can’t tell, I highly recommend it! I could also easily see it becoming a classic in several years.

I really enjoy all 3 of these covers! If I had to pick one as my absolutely favorite though, I’d definitely go with the first one. I love covers with silhouettes of people on the cover. It’s such a cool concept!

Least Favorite Cover

I actually don’t have a least favorite cover for this book! There was only 4 different covers throughout all the countries that published the novel and I surprisingly enjoyed them all for once!

This week’s theme is a book that focuses on food, eating, or cooking. The book I picked for this theme is Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. While this book’s plot isn’t totally centered around food, there are several mentions of Oreos so I thought the book fit the theme well enough!

Untitled

My favorite covers of this book are definitely the original one and the Dutch one! They both have really cool and unique styles!

Least Favorite Cover

Swedish Simon

It was hard to find a different cover for this book since most of the international versions had covers close to the original. However, I came across this one from Sweden and have picked it as my least favorite. I don’t like it at all!

This week’s theme is a book that makes you think of traveling. At first, I didn’t know which book to pick for this theme. After going through my ‘read’ shelf on Goodreads, however, I decided to go with Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. In this book, the main character Yael is competing in a motorcycle race from Germania to Japan to win an audience with Hitler in order to assassinate him. Most of the book is spent on the road so I thought it fit well with the traveling theme!

My favorite cover is definitely the original one! I feel like it really represents the story and it’s also super cool looking too!

My least favorite cover is definitely this Portuguese one. I don’t like the colors or the style whatsoever! I appreciate that there are wolves on the cover but they just look really strange!

This week’s theme is to pick a book that brings you joy because International Day of Happiness was this past Sunday! I’ve decided to go with one of my favorite YA contemporary novels: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson.

My favorite cover is definitely the original one. I absolutely love the typography and I think it really fits the feel of the story itself! (Side note: the inside design of this edition’s dust jacket is SO cool!)

Before writing up this post, I had never seen an alternative cover for this book. However, after looking on Goodreads, I found this German edition. I really don’t like it at all! I’m not a fan of the fonts and colors used. Plus, I think it should have had Emily and Sloane on the cover (like the original edition) since their friendship is the central plot of the book.

This week’s theme is “Crying is not always bad. Choose a book that made you ugly cry.” I really don’t cry that often while reading books. I’ll sometimes tear up, but that’s usually as far as I go. However, there are a handful of books that made me more than tear up – including the book I’m discussing today: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. I just wanted to say that overall I didn’t love this book (I ended up giving it 2.5 stars) BUT towards the ending, things got all kinds of sad and I couldn’t help but cry.


Original Cover / My Country’s Cover

Original TSOA Cover

There are many US editions for this book, but I believe this is the original. It’s not bad or anything, but it’s definitely not my favorite!

Favorite Covers

These two are definitely my favorite of all the covers. They’re very similar, but I still wanted to include them both. I like the background color of the one on the left and I also like the font used for the title of the book on both covers! The one on the left is a US paperback edition and the one on the right is a US hardcover edition – both published by Ecco.

Least Favorite Covers

least favorite covers

These two are my least favorite editions of this book. The one on the left is the Hebrew edition and I think it’s just really, really strange. What is that purple thing? A dead flower? Some other weird plant? I have no idea. Also, that guy staring at me makes me uncomfortable. The cover on the right is the German edition. I don’t mind the image itself that much but the font and the color of the font is horrendous. It doesn’t go with the image at all!

This week’s theme is “Every book has a special someone! Choose a book with your bookish boyfriend.” I, like many, have numerous book boyfriends. However, I decided to go with someone who’s quite special to me – Captain Carswell Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer! While he is in books 2, 3, and 4 of the series, I decided to go with Cress (book 3) because it’s my favorite in the series.

The original cover will always be my favorite, but the Czech edition (on the right) is quite stunning as well! I feel like it really represents Cress – the person and the novel.

Least Favorite Covers

Cress ugly covers

I don’t like either of these covers at all. The one on the left (German edition) doesn’t look like it has anything to do with the book (unless that golden stuff is supposed to be Cress’s hair?). The one on the right (Swedish edition) is just super strange. For some reason, Cress is a naked redhead Barbie doll who’s crying?? It makes no sense at all!
