Book Traveling Thursdays: It is almost time to go back to school!

Hello, welcome back for the 4th week ok Book Traveling 168709Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Cátia @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 “It is almost time to go back to school. Choose a book that mostly occurs in a high school“. For this weeks theme I chose The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, that has been around for enough time to have a few diverse covers.

Original Over:

This is the original cover that came out in 1999 in the US. Do you like it? I do not, actually, I think it’s one of the worst covers ever…


Again, don’t get overly excited, I could not find a cover for the Portuguese version (maybe it also doesn’t exists… is this even possible?).

So, I give you the cover for the Brazilian and Spanish adaptations, both of them came out after the movie.



I really love the movie tie-in covers for this book. I like the green one above well enough, but the blue UK is my favorite movie tie-in (it is also the one I own). Then the other UK one is way more recent and I think it’s my favorite out of all the covers of this book. The Dutch is unique and the more I look at it, the more I like it.



First off, this book has some horrible covers! That said, the original US, the pink Thai, and the blue German with a picture of a girl (why?!) are probably my least favorites. What do you think?

      I like yours, though I would rather that the letters were not orange (does that make sense?).

      But the original one… bah… I get it, i honestly kind of get that cover, but I just don’t like it… it looks like something out of the 1980’s.

        I don’t mind the orange but it might have been nicer in another color, like blue.

        Isn’t the novel set in the 80s though? Or maybe early 90s, I don’t remember. I think it symbolizes the “wallflowerness” and loneliness 😀

    It looks like we had the same idea =P… I’m pretty sure that I saw this book in portuguese when the movie was released but I can’t find it anywhere

    Love your post! 🙂
    I love this book so much.
    I have to agree with you on the least favorite ones.
    Those are not appealing at all.
    I really like the UK ones.

    I really don’t understand why this book has so many awful covers, it’s so unfortunate. I was looking at all the covers and just shaking my head. My favourite is the same as your favourite, definitely. xoxo 💕
