Finally I’m writing something on here!
I was – and still am – in a big writing slump, but since it’s summer and my university load has lessened (is that sentence even correct? After two hours studying English grammar I feel I cannot write in English anymore) I would like to keep up with my blog a little more.
So, I planned to do this week’s Book Traveling Thursdays, a weekly meme created by Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog and Catia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much. It took four days for me to complete this post, but if you’re reading it, that means I did it!
I’ve always liked this meme and I wanted to take part of it as well, and I even joined the Goodreads group looong ago. But… this is my first post about this meme!
The theme of this week is Favorite Debut Novel. I chose Cinder by Marissa Meyer. What I’m going to do is pick the original cover, the cover from my Country, my favorite cover and my least favorite cover and write a brief comment on each of them!
I think this cover is really beautiful. It is one of the reasons I decided to pick up this book. And I was reaaally disappointed when I found out that…
COVER FROM MY COUNTRY (ITALY):
… in my Country it was replaced by THAT. What is that even supposed to mean? It kinda reminds me of Maleficent, but Cinderella? Not at all!
This cover is gorgeous. It’s really similar to the original one, but the color of the shoe and those little “glimmering” really remind me of Cinderella. I love the colors they picked and I appreciate that they chose to mantain the original layout!
LEAST FAVORITE COVER:
A lot of Countries adopted this kind of style, with the little doll in the corner. I don’t really like it, because I find it creepy – I don’t really like dolls either. Out of the several Countries, I picked Poland because I feel they really didn’t put any effort in making this cover. I mean, look at the font. It’s so basic and unpleasant to see. If I saw that in a book shop, I would probably leave it untouched
This is all for today! I hope you enjoyed this post!
