Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book With a Bookish Boyfriend


Hello, welcome back to another 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 “Every book has a special someone! Choose a book with your bookish boyfriend“.  This is hard! I have an obscena amount of book-boyfriends – I might actually make a list of it – but a lot of them belong to books that I either already used, or which covers are not very diverse. So I decided to go classic! And classic means Mr. Darcy! Yes, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Original COver:


The book being over 200 years and all, the original cover was pretty much generic and “classic”. eheh… ugly!



As any classic, there are several editions of this book in each language, so I’ll just give a few good ones: portuguese, spanish and catalan editions.

Favorite COVER(s):


I’m a sucker for classics collections, and these are part of some of my favorites collections – that I wished I owned! They’re all from the Penguin collections.



There are some truly hideous covers for this book, so I decided to only show a few of the recent ones ;-). I think these are 3 very ugly covers for such a beautiful book. I think these 3 editions are from the US, but it’s hard to tell :P.

    The Penguin editions are so pretty. They always have the best covers. You should have seen the portuguese edition I have. It’s the movie tie-in for the 2005 movie but in a ugly way

      the fact that I had already picked Jem for another of these posts, and Heir of Fire and Wallbanger don’t have enough covers… so I went classic! I love the portuguese and spanish covers too, those at least, because we have like 100 editions in each country :D. the one I own is simple but I kind of like it.
