Book Traveling Thursdays: The unlucky thirteen

168709Today is the second day of Book Traveling Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Catia @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. Sounds like fun, right?

This week’s theme is The unlucky thirteen: choose a book with a character who has really bad luck. I found this super hard… I remembered a few clumsy characters, but unlucky (and which the covers had some variety), it was hard. Then I remembered Chiyo Sakamoto from Memoirs of a Geisha by  Arthur Golden, and even though I don’t remember too much of the book, I remember that she had a hard and unlucky live.

Original cover:

This is a pretty-ish cover, it was the original one back in 1997 and it’s still used until this day.

COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (PORTUGAL) & COVER FROM THE COUNTRY I LIVE IN (SPAIN):

We probably had the book before the movie came out, but I can’t find a cover for it, lol, so yeah, in Portugal we got the tie-in, which is beautiful and it’s the one I have – I loved the movie, by the way. On the right are two of the spanish covers, they have a few, including the movie tie-in.

FAVORITE COVER:

The Mongolian, Indonesian and Russian editions, alongside with the movie tie-in, are my favorites 🙂 .

LEAST FAVORITE COVER:

 

Penguin, what were you thinking?! That cover is just awful. And that spanish one isn’t far behind…

 

Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book by a Favorite Author

168709

Today is the first day of Book Traveling Thursdays, which a weekly meme created by Catia @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. Sounds like fun, right?

So I was either going with Cassandra Clare, J.K. Rowling, Sarah J. Maas or Rainbow Rowell, I went with the latter ;-). So, let’s have a look at Attachments, which I mention before how much I love it.

   

Original Cover:

This cover is a mistery to me, because I think it was replaced rather quickly by the one below with the chairs (and thanks for that, because this one kind of sucks!).

I think that all of Rainbow Rowell’s original covers are amazing, all of them, but not this one! Let’s all agree that the original one is the one below in the favorite department?!

  

Cover from my Country (Portugal) & Cover from the country I live in (Spain):

So, given that I’m currently living in Spain, I thought it would be good to put both covers, unfortunately Attachments hasn’t arrived to either country! I know, right? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?! So, the next best thing? I’m giving you the cover from Brazil (hey, at least is Portuguese!).

   

Favorite Cover:

No doubt my favorite cover is this one, which incredibly came out just a few days after that atrocious pink one above, so honestly I think this is considered the “original” one.

I have the UK version, which is nothing much, but one day I will get this hardcover because it’s so damn pretty and I love it!

   

Least Favorite Cover:

The Turkish cover is BAD! Really BAD!!!! I mean, what were they even thinking is this cover? It has absolutely nothing to do with the original one, and honestly it doesn’t even fit the story =/.
