This week we show our favorite retelling! The book I picked for this week is one I read a really long time ago when I was getting back into reading. I remember picking it up because of its stunning cover. I just recently did a Top 5 Wednesday post about retellings, so check it out here if you want! This isn't necessarily a favorite retelling of mine, but it is one of the first YA retellings I read when getting back into the genre.
Today I picked...
Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce!
English Cover/ Original Cover
This is the original cover and the one that I own. I love this cover because of the two separate images you can see on it. The cover is also really accurate to the story as well, since it follows two sisters that fight against werewolves. You know a book cover is good if it compels you to buy it, and that is exactly what this one made me do a couple of years back!
I find this edition just as stunning as the first one I showed. The reflection of the girl is really cool and they look almost identical, save the scar on the cheek of the bottom one, which is an infliction a character in the book has! This cover portrays the story really well, it's just more subtle than the first. I love the details in this cover and if I were a book collector, I would be ordering this one from the book depository! Also, this is a Thai edition, which I haven't seen yet since doing this weekly meme!
It is no surprise that I do not like the German cover. They just don't seem to ever get it right! Though the cover isn't horrendous, it pales in comparison to the other editions out there. You can get an idea of the plot from this cover, but it just makes the book seem like another cookie cutter paranormal novel. Can't we have some originality instead of two girls running in the cliche fog-ridden woods? Lame.
So that is my post today! Have you read Sisters Read or any of the other fairytale retellings Jackson Pearce has done over the last couple of years?
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
