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 deals with mental health. I chose This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers because it deals with depression and it does it very very well. I will not get tired of recommending this book, not only for great representation, but because it’s a great book overall, it has zombies, and it begins one of my favorite opening chapters ever. Check it out on Amazon and tell me if it doesn’t hook you to the story right away. Now let’s check out the covers!
ORIGINAL AND FAVORITE COVER
The US edition is the original and my favorite because I think it gives the overall vibe that the story within is dark. I like the small splatter of blood on the corner, almost unnoticeable, and the hair covering her face. The colors and the fonts are also great!
LEAST FAVORITE COVERS
This is the cover from Hungary. I don’t get the ninja look and I don’t think that’s how Sloane looks. It makes it seem like it is a book about an assassin, which is not the case at all!
