Book Traveling Thursdays: Eye-Candy Cover

btt

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 “Book with an Eye Candy Cover. Choose a book that you read/bought because of the cover“. Today I’m using The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer, which I still haven’t read, but that I bought because it had a beautiful cover.


Original COver:

                                         

I really like both original covers – I own the blue one. They are both amazing, and even though I haven’t read it yet, I like the tree thing consistency.

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

                      

The first cover is the portuguese edition, and I hate it. Seriously… what is that? No no no! The next two covers are both spanish editions, and they are somewhat similar to the two original covers, though neither is as good.

Favorite COVER(s):

    

My favorite covers for this book are the original one, the Dutch edition, the Danish and the Estonian. The Dutch one just has the most amazing colours, even though the text is a little lost in there. And I really like the Danish one, even though I have no clue if it fits the book at all. The Estonian is gorgeous!

LEAST FAVORITE COVER(s):

  

I won’t even explain why the following covers are bad, because just look at them! They’re awful! There are: Hungarian, Czech, Swedish and the Portuguese.

July Book Haul

Hi! As promised, I’m here today to share with you my July book haul, which obviously includes my shiny new The Mortal Instruments books, with their amazing new covers (the last books just got in today).

Let’s start with The Mortal Instruments, which by the way, I have obviously already read some time ago…

Right?! Right? Gorgeous!

Other series that I got my hands on this month was the Shatter Me trilogy. I had been trying to get them for a while now, but the bookstore usually just had 2 of the 3 books, and I wanted to buy them all at the same time, to make sure their sizes were the same. A couple of weeks ago I went to the bookstore to pick up another book, and there they were, so, obviously, they came home with me. Shatter Me, Unravel Me and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi.
