The idea of this meme is to choose a book that has the characteristic the mods choose and show the original cover and the book from your country. Next, you show your favorite edition of the book, excluding the original one. After all that, you show your least favorite edition.
Today's theme is a book that deals with war because peace day was two days ago!
I picked Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi! I chose this book because while it is not necessarily war ridden, the book definitely is not peaceful! There are several tense relationships in this and battles do occur throughout the series.
I don't necessarily like this cover on the left, but it is the most well known. Some people really love it, but I just don't like people on the covers that much. The second one is a whole other story! It's absolutely love this cover and the color scheme. I like the person on this cover because the person isn't completely exposed so it leaves an aura of mystery.
My favorite is for sure this one! It is absolutely stunning and I just love it. I don't really know why I like it so much, I just do! The typography is really nice and so is the catch line to draw people in. The people aren't real, so I don't mind it. Bonus points that it is an accurate representation of the characters and how they look also!
Russian Hungarian Dutch
Okay, people on covers rarely work but when they do, the outcome is amazing. All three of these are failed attempts. I think my least favorite of these three is the Russian one. While it shows a dome, which is correct to the books, it just looks really cheesy. The girl on the cover looks really strange and it doesn't really give off the feeling of the novel. The Hungarian edition is also pretty bad. I hate the whole entire pose Aria is doing here. Like who actually stands like that? It looks so forced. As for the Dutch cover, it doesn't accurately represent the book at all. If I were to see this cover, I would have thought that the book is sci fi.
Those are my choices for the day! I had a lot of fun doing this post and was surprised at the variations of covers! Did you guys like this and should I do more?
Thanks guys for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
