Today 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.
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.
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…
