Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book Set In a Fictional World


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 “Here’s to different worlds… Choose a book set in a fictional world“. For today I’m using The Winner’s Curse (The Winner’s Trilogy #1) by Marie Rutkoski, which I totally loved, by the way, and you guys should all read.

Original COver:

I love the original US cover. Love it! Especially because of the way the title and name are positioned sideways.



The Portuguese cover is similar to the original one, but the tones are a bit different… I like it. I even like that Kestrel is a bit further away. The Spanish cover is just like the original one, which is always good.


I think my favorite version though, it’s the one I own. I love these Square Fish editions, where the outer cover is just slightly smaller than the interior one. I always love this effect.


Without a doubt my least favorite cover is the reprint edition one. I don’t know why they decided to change all the covers when the third book came out, but it was a bad move.

    I love the original covers. I’m so annoyed that the second book in the series I have is the new edition. The dresses are just so pretty.

    Just got these series thankfully with the original design- I live in the UK but the covers are very similar to the US edition just without the really cool slightly smaller front cover which is a shame lol

    Urgh the reprint cover is my least favourite too, this book is still on my bookshelf waiting for me to finally pick it up! I say it every time but I don’t know why publishers make covers with models, I prefer not being able to see the models face because then I go into the book with no influence and sometimes the model isn’t anything like the character within. Seeing as I haven’t read this one I can’t comment if she represents the character, i’m assuming she does?
