February 8th: Book Trends You’re Tired Of
— What are some things you are tired of seeing that are trends in publishing? Maybe something that pops up on a lot of covers these days, or the popularity of certain tropes in a particular genre? Let it out!

I’m particularly tired of seeing random people on book covers. It wouldn’t be as much of a problem if the people actually looked like the main character(s). That’s only in a perfect world. Here are some examples:

Paper Towns

De Hongerspelen (De Hongerspelen, #1)(The Hunger Games)

Bajo la misma estrella

 

 

 

 

 

 

(The Fault In Our Stars)

 

Do wszystkich chłopców, których kochałam (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)(To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before)

Oddam ci słońce(I’ll Give You The Sun)


That’s a wrap! What are some book trends you’re tired of? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5Ws!

Book Traveling Thursday (#25)

Hey everyone! It’s Thursday and that means tomorrow’s Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week and can have a relaxing and enjoyable rest of their week. It also means it’s time for another Book Traveling Thursday! This meme is hosted by the amazing Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and  wonderful Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Go check out their outstanding blogs if you haven’t already! To find more information, future themes and more, go to the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s theme (the first of July!) is:

Book with an Eye Candy Cover. Choose a book that you read/bought because of the cover.

I never get a book only because of the cover. The cover definitely does influence me though. I’ve already done a lot of books that would’ve been perfect for this theme. I have decided to do Insurgent by Veronica Roth. It definitely has an eye-catching cover.


Original Cover/Cover From My Country (US):

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)


Favorite Cover(s):

Tödliche Wahrheit (Die Bestimmung, #2)German

All that changed was the colors but I still enjoy it

Divergente (Divergente, #2)French

This is an interesting split cover!

Pobunjeni (Divergent, #2)Serbian

My favorite is the Serbian cover because it has a gloomy and mysterious feel about it.


Least Favorite Cover(s):

Divergente (Divergente, #2)French

المتمردة إنسورجنتArabic

Rezistencia (Divergencia, #2)Slovak

My least favorite out of these is probably the French one. They just put a random person on the cover!


That’s a wrap! Most of these covers aren’t really that good or bad. The majority of the covers looked like the original. What are your favorite and least favorite covers? Let me know! I apologize for the small cover selection this week.

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

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!
