Book Traveling Thursdays: A World I Would Like To Live In


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 “Because world building matters… Choose a book in which world you would like to live“. Because I’ve used most of the books I’ve read with worlds I would like to live in, I’m gonna say Illuminae, because even though the thought of space scares me a bit, I do love the setup of this world.

Original and Favorite COver:

This is the US hardcover, and it is one of the most gorgeous covers that I own, because the dust jacket is semitransparent and it lets us see the writing beneath, and it’s just amazing.



Illuminae came out here in Portugal on the 1st of this month! I was so surprised, I was so excited when I saw it for sale yesterday. It is a paperback though, so not as cool as the hardcover. Same goes for the spanish edition.


Even though I still like the UK paperback, I don’t like it as much as the original, or even the spanish and portuguese editions. Somehow I think that the black there doesn’t quite fit, and the orange is slightly less pretty.

    Oh, that’s interesting about the semi-transparent effect on the original cover. I didn’t know about that! Agreed, the white font highlight looks much better. Illuminae one of those book I’d love to get around to reading very soon. What were some of the things you really liked about the world?

    You’re so right, the black on the UK Paperback version just doesn’t look right, the white blends in so much better and makes it look more pleasing and eye-catching!
