Book Traveling Thursday (#21) A New World

Hello everyone! Today I am graduating from my school 🙂 I’m exciting to see what the next school has to offer. Today is also Thursday. That means it’s time for Book Traveling Thursday. This wonderful meme is hosted by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog! You definitely need to check their blogs out if you haven’t already. To find out more information, future themes and more, go to the Goodreads page here. This week’s theme is:

Because world building matters… Choose a book in which world you would like to live.

Oh my gosh! I’ve already done pretty much every Harry Potter book… I guess I will change it a bit and do a world I wouldn’t like to live in. I apologize if I’ve already done this but I am doing The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It would be so scary to live in this book!


Original/Cover From My Country (US):

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

Favorite Cover(s):

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)English

De Hongerspelen (De Hongerspelen, #1)Dutch

Igre gladi (Igre gladi, #1)Serbian

Los juegos del hambre (Los juegos del hambre, #1)Spanish

飢餓遊戲 (飢餓遊戲, #1)

My favorite out of these is probably the Serbian one. It’s so creative!

Least Favorite(s):

Bado žaidynės (Bado žaidynės, #1)Lithuanian

7769068Russian

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)English

De Hongerspelen (De Hongerspelen, #1)Dutch

مباريات الجوعArabic

These are honestly a great example of why you don’t use people in your covers. My least favorite is the Arabic one because it’s random and doesn’t make sense.


That’s a wrap! What was your favorite and least favorite covers? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Book Traveling Thursdays!

This is a pretty tough one since some books I’ve done fit perfectly into this. Never the less, I have decided to do Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.

Sophie và tên khổng lồVietnamese

Favorite Cover(s):

The Wizard of Oz (Oz, #1)English

The Wizard of OzEnglish

Der Zauberer von OzGerman

So Cute!

El mago de Oz (Oz, #1)Spanish

Book Traveling Thursdays

Original Cover/Cover from My Country (US):

This is the book I read. I am not 100% sure what the original one is.


Favorite Cover(s):

La fabbrica di cioccolatoItalian

Sjakie en de chocoladefabriekDutch

Charlie Und Die SchokoladenfabrikGerman

Sjakie en de ChocoladefabriekDutch (Apparently they have different editions)

تشارلي ومصنع الشوكولاته (Charlie Bucket, #1)Arabic

My favorite has to be the one I read. It’s so colorful and cheerful.


 

Least Favorite(s):

چارلی و کارخانه‌ی شکلات‌سازیPersian

 

چارلی و کارخانهء شکلات‌سازیPersian

Çarli'nin Çikolata FabrikasıTurkish

Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryEnglish (Penguin Classics)

La fabbrica di cioccolato (Charlie Bucket, #1)Italian

I have two least favorites on here. The worst is the Penguin Classic. What does a creepy girl have to do with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?!The last is the Italian cover above. It doesn’t have much to do with the book.


That’s a wrap! This week definitely had lots of diversity.

Book Traveling Thursday (#13)

Hey everyone! It’s time for another Book Traveling Thursday! Just a quick note:

I realized that the numbers for the Book Traveling Thursdays go from #10 to #12. In other words there’s no #11. I found that #11 in my drafts and it had some how not been posted. I apologized for missing a week. If that draft had been posted, this would’ve been #14.

Thank you for understanding

Everything has an end! Choose your favorite conclusion to a series.

This is super tough!! I’ve already done Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. In honor of Beverly Cleary and her 100th birthday, I will do the conclusion to the Ramona series. It isn’t my favorite conclusion but is pretty good. The book is called Ramona’s World. It is a children’s book.

Book Traveling Thursdays


Original Cover/Cover from my Country:

Ramona's World (Ramona, #8)


Favorite Cover(s):

Most of these covers will be English. There is a pretty small selection of covers.

Ramona's WorldEnglish

Ramona's World (Ramona Quimby (Paperback))English

دنیای رامونا (Ramona, #8)Persian

Ramona's World (Ramona Quimby (Harper Paperback))Movie Edition (English)

Светът на РамонаBulgarian

My favorite is the Persian one because it has that cartoony feel to it.

Least Favorite(s):

Ramona und das neue Baby. ( Ab 8 J.).Unknown Language (Not English!)

My least favorite is the last one because it makes Ramona seem like a toddler. At this point she is in middle school or at least


That’s a wrap! I apologize for the lack of diversity but this was mainly a tribute to Beverly Cleary. What were your favorite and/or least favorite cover? Comment below!

Book Traveling Thursdays (#12)

Hey everyone! We’ve almost made it to the weekend 🙂 That means it’s time for Book Traveling Thursday’s! This weekly meme is hosted by Catia @ The Girl Who Reads Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. You definitely need to check out their blogs! You can find out info about the meme, themes and more at the Goodreads group. This week’s theme is:

National Siblings Day is a few days away. Choose a book that has your favorite bookish siblings.

Book Traveling Thursdays

There are so many bookish siblings to choose from! Some of them are in books I’ve already done. I am going to do Indigo’s Star by Hillary McKay. This is part of a series. The siblings are definitely tight-knit and always looking out for each other.

Original Cover/Cover From My Country (US):

Favorite Cover(s):

435495English

Indigon tähtiFinnish

Se vires uma estrela cadente pede um desejo (Clube das Amigas, #84)Portuguese

There isn’t very many covers to choose from. My favorite is probably the English one because it’s so unique and beautiful.

Least Favorite(s):

7193474English

Indigos stjärna (Casson Family, #2) Swedish

Indygo i gwiazdyPolish

Indigo's Star (Casson Family, #2)English

Out of all the covers, I had more I didn’t like. The bottom line with this book is that they definitely shouldn’t use faces on the cover. That’s what ruined most of these. A couple of them are fine but others are not.


 

That’s a wrap! This book definitely doesn’t have very many covers. The majority seem to be English. Sorry there wasn’t much variety this week!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Book Traveling Thursday’s!
