Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book That Made Me Laugh!


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 “World’s Laughter Day was a few days ago. Choose a book that makes you laugh“. I read a lot of funny books, but most of them are NA books with only one cover, so I decided to use a non-fiction book for today. Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari & Eric Klinenberg is a fantastic book and I highly recommend it.

Original COver:

This is the original US cover and I’ve become quite fond of it. I like that it has Aziz Ansari on the cover and that it showcases the subject. But having a famous person on the cover might lead a lot of people to believe that this is an autobiography, when in fact it is a sociological study.


This book hasn’t been released in either country yet.

Favorite COVER(s):

I love this cover! This is the Brazilian cover, and I think it’s just gorgeous and smart.



The first is the UK paperback cover, and I’m not a fan. I like the colors and all, but the use of an anatomical heart is just not my favorite thing… yeah, the book is about romance, but love has very little to do with the actual muscle. Then the Polish cover is just bad, it looks like a half assed attempt at something like the original cover… not good.

    I like the Original cover best, but I also don’t mind the UK one. I think they used the anatomical heart, because Aziz talks a lot about how modern romance is not as romantic as it was in the past. Isn’t that part of it all? So, using an anatomic heart kind of represents that maybe?
