This is Book Traveling Thursdays! 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 from around the world of a book related to that week’s theme. You share the original cover, cover from your country, your favorite, and least favorite covers. You can find out more on the Goodreads group.
This week’s theme is for a book that had a major plot twist. I do tend to fawn over books with crazy plot twists, so at first I had a tough time thinking of one book in particular. Until, I was looking at my shelf and saw Pierce Brown’s Golden Son peeking out at me. This book had an insane number of twists and turns, every time I thought I had figured out where it was going, Brown changed it up on me again. How could I pick anything else?
Original, My Country [USA], & Fave Cover:
So simple and graphic. The laurel wreath lighting on fire is the perfect representation of Golden Son. I also love the way that the title is written vertically across the cover and the wreath is tilted towards it, drawing your towards the words. It’s just very cleverly designed.
Least Favorite Cover:
This cover is just so bad. I’m sad for Germany that they have to look at this. It takes a modern, scifi novel and makes it look like some outdated book published in the 80’s about the history of space or something.
And that’s all for today, folks! What do you think of the covers? 🙂
