Every week, Danielle (from Danielle’s Book Blog) and Cátia (from TheGirlWhoReadTooMuch) host a feature called Book Traveling Thursdays on Goodreads. They give you a topic each Thursday and you choose a book that you think fits. Then comes the fun part: a cover showdown! You post the original cover, the cover from your country (which I won’t be doing because the books aren’t published here), and then your favorite and least favorite cover from any edition around the world.
This week’s topic is a book that features an amazing friendship that matters because the International Day of Friendship is in two days! For this I decided to go with Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle #3) by Maggie Stiefvater because the friendships are really solid by that book and I truly enjoyed it. Now, let’s check out some covers!
This is the original US cover. I am in love with it! Especially since I learned the meaning behind it after reading all the books. Still, on its own, it’s pretty. I adore the colors, the illustration is beautiful and I really like the fonts used.
This are the original US edition and the Bulgarian one. I still like the original a bit more, but the changes the Bulgarian made do not bother me.
LEAST FAVORITE COVERS
This is the German edition. What bothers me the most in this one is the change of the title, which brought the awful change of the cover art. It translates to ‘What the mirror knows’ (don’t trust me too much on this though) and even if that sounds cool for a novel, I don’t like it for this one in particular.
