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’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.
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.
COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):
This book hasn’t been released in either country yet.
I love this cover! This is the Brazilian cover, and I think it’s just gorgeous and smart.
LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):
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?
yes, that’s true, but he talks that in connection with the modern technology, and that is in no way implied in that cover =/
okay, that I can see.
that’s the only reason I’m not a fan of the UK cover… i think it’s a beautiful work of art, but that ultimately has little to do with the content of the book.
The brazilian cover is gorgeous. I don’t know if it has anything to do with the book or not but I love that cover
it has a lot to do with the theme. technology and romance 😀 and it’s so so pretty!
The Original one is great! I don’t enjoy the UK one though.
