Hello, welcome back for the 3rd week ok Book Traveling Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Catia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.
This week’s theme is “Oh no! Summer is almost over! Choose one of your favorite summer reads“. This was a huge problem for me, why?! Well, this summer I mostly read newly released fantasy books which covers are not very diverse or eARCS, which only have the one cover for now… So I’m going with An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.
This is the cover I own, look how pretty it is… US hardcover, released back in April.
COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):
Well, don’t get all excited, the first cover is not from Portugal, but it’s actually from Brazil – yeah, we still don’t have it either. But here in Spain, the book is coming out in September I guess, so there’s that. They’re are just like the original, so bonus points for not ruining a perfect gorgeous cover.
I love the original US cover, but I’m IN LOVE with the UK cover. It’s so pretty!!! I like it because it’s simpler than the US version, and I’m a sucker for black covers with gold…
LEAST FAVORITE COVER:
This is the Bulgarian cover… I hate it. Seriously, why would they not use one of the 2 gorgeous designs that already existed? I don’t get it…

I was actually getting excited when I saw the “portuguese” cover =P
I figured, I was excited as well when it popped up in google images, but then “hey, brazilian…” 😦
I do I think that we will have to wait a lot of time before the release um Portugal?
I don’t know… probably?! If it actually ends up being a movie, I’m guessing that it will be translated when the buzz starts, like Red Queen. Until then, I doubt it, I mean, we don’t have Fangirl, or Throne of Glass, so…
This was an interesting post! It’s cool to see all the different covers. I have to agree with you on the Bulgarian cover. It’s not appealing at all!
it really isn’t 😦 all they had to do was keep the original one, like most did =/
If I seen that cover, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up to even see what it was about!
me neither!!!! 😀 (I’m glad I got the other one, I really liked this book)
Me too! I really enjoyed it a lot! 🙂
Loved, loved, LOVED this book! I like that UK cover. 🙂
isn’t it pretty?! 😀
I gotta read this book, sounds like something I’d really enjoy.
it’s super cool, a lot of breathtaking action sequences as well 🙂
Yes, I hate our Bulgarian cover. When I saw the book in the bookstore, I was so disappointed that I ended up not buying it 😦
oh 😦 but you should read it, it’s so good! (I’m sorry your cover sucks, but hey, at least it got translated there 😉 )
Hopefully the translation is not as bad as the cover 😀
😉 i hope not
Thanks for participating! I had the same problem as you with reading mostly new books with only one cover. LOL!
🙂 sometimes it’s hard 😉
This was an interesting post! (: I still haven’t read this book and I need to!
yeah, it’s a really great book! But you still have a lot of time before the sequel comes out 😉
I haven’t read this book but I agree that the UK cover is beautiful. The one`s from your countries are pretty similar except for the language difference obviously.
yeah, that’s because the books is pretty recent, so many countries don’t have the translation yet – my country is one of them. I do love the UK cover, but I have the US hardcover, so…
That’s so cool.
