Book Traveling Thursdays #9 – A Book that got Made into a Movie you Actually Enjoyed

Today is thursday which means that is Book Traveling Thursdays, a weekly meme created by me and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. This weekly meme consists in picking a book related to the weekly theme that is announced in the group Goodreads page (if you want to join click here) at the beginning of each month. After that you can write a blog post where you explain why you choose that book and choose different covers from different countries. To make it a little bit easy you are going to choose different editions of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover. This week theme is A Book that got Made into a Movie you Actually Enjoyed. A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog post about my Favorite Book to Movie Adaptations (you can see it here). From that post you can see that there are a few adaptations that I enjoyed so I ended up choosing a book from that list. I ended up choosing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. If you haven’t read the book and watched the movie I absolutely recommend you to do it because they are both amazing and beautiful So let’s start this list.

Original Cover:


This cover is not one of my favorite covers but I actually like it. It’s different and I like the colors that are used.

Covers from my Country (Portugal):


These are the portuguese covers and I actually have both because my book as the first cover but it also has the movie tie-in. I love the first cover. First I like that it is monochromatic but I also like that it has Liesel and Death represent holding hands. I just think that is a great cover. The other one I don’t like that much because I normally don’t like movie tie-ins but this is one is not that bad because I liked the girl who was chosen to be Liesel.

Favorite Covers:


The first cover, from Australia, is just beautiful. I love how Death is on the cover and I especially like the blood stains. For me this is one cover that was extremely well done. The second cover, from Brazil, is also beautiful and I like that it only has a little bit of color. The last one I already explain why I like this cover before.

Least Favorite Covers:

Let’s start with the italian cover. I don’t like when they use people in covers and because of that I don’t like this one. The russian cover is just creepy. It’s weird and Death is scary in this one. I also don’t like Liesel pose in this cover. It’s awkward.

So this is it, this week Book Traveling Thursdays. What did you think of these covers? Tell me in the comments 🙂 .

  1. This was a great movie adaptation. I didn’t know much about the book when I first read it and it blew me away. I haven’t seen the variety of covers before either, so this was a great post to remind me how much I loved this. Thank you! – ashley

  2. I am reading the book at he moment and I am really liking it. I agree, the Russian cover is super creepy. I wouldn’t feel to happy leaving that on my book pile. My favourite one has to be the one from Portugal (which is the same in the UK) as it is a very simple but powerful at the same time.
