Hello, welcome back to another Book Traveling Thursdays, 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 “World Peace Day was two day ago! Choose a book that deals with a war“. I’ve only now realized that I haven’t read that many books with Wars on them, and those I’ve read are either dystopians or fantasy… oh well :P… Still riding the Penryn & the End of Days train, this is the perfect excuse to use Angelfall. If you haven’t read this book, it deals with what happens after the Angels arrive on Earth. In this first book there isn’t that much confrontation between Humans and Angels, but they’re amidst a war for sure, even if it’s clear that the Angels are easily winning.
How gorgeous is this cover? The original US cover is amazing, and I really want to own all 3 physical books, because not only is the story amazing, but the covers themselves are beyond gorgeous.
COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):
Surprise surprise! Obviously this book hasn’t arrived in Portugal yet… I couldn’t even find the Brazilian version, so I present the Spanish edition to you. The cover is similar to the original one, though those sword shadows are confusing and honestly, not that great…
This one is definitely my favorite. It’s very similar to the original one, but the lettering is different and the placement of the title and the author’s name is different. I like this one better, a lot better. This cover is so gorgeous!!! I want it… bad!
LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):
Ohhh, so many bad covers for this book! First off is the Italian, I mean, who is that supposed to be? Penryn? Because that«s not Penryn… Second we have the Indonesian edition, and my only problem with it is the fact that I’m not a fan of people on covers, but let’s face it and admit that that Raffe wannabe is kind of hot. Next up is the Turkish cover, and this one, just NO, God, is that Raffe? It’s so ugly! Now for the German, and my problem with it the the lettering more than anything, because the graphics are tolerable enough. And last, obviously, is the Russian edition, and I’ll say this for it: it’s not the worst russian cover out there, but it still looks like a fantasy cover from the 80’s or 90’s…

And Russia keeps appearing in the ugly covers 😛 . Not a surprise at all. You need to stop talking about this book because now I want to read it and I can’t 😀
uppppsss, sorry 😛 , I’ll stop now 😉
Yes, Russia is a permanent fixture on my weekly posts…
I had Russia in my favorites once. It was a surprise because I’m used to have it in the least favorites
I remember :D, most of their covers are just so weird :S
The Dutch cover is like the German one, only with better lettering, haha. I quite like it.
I saw the Dutch, and I kind of liked it, but the german with those horrible letters? Nop…
If it wasn’t for cover art like that, I’d just buy e-books. Treat yoself immediately and get those three books!
I will 😀 I just haven’t seen on the store yet, otherwise they would be on my shelf 😉
I meaaaaan sometimes Amazon shipping costs from the US are worth it :0
we have amazon here in spain and the shipping is free 😀 😀 😀 (and they have these with the gorgeous covers 😉 )
It’s meant to be <333
Oh, my goodness! O_O Those swords overlayed in the background in the Spanish cover really do look very randomly placed. It would have been better without it to be honest. As for the lettering in the German cover, I have to agree with you – it feels out of place as well, like the book was some sort of very action-y book rather tahn a post-apocalyptic book. The english version is definitely the best for me as well 😀

i don’t get why they try to change something that is already great 😉
