Book Traveling Thursdays #17 – Favorite Re-telling

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 weeks theme is  Because we’re never to old to believe in Fairytales choose your favorite re-telling!! For this week I decided to choose a book from one of my favorite series and by now you might have guessed that is a book from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. The book is Cress because so far is my favorite book from the series. Let’s go see some covers.

Original Cover:


I love this cover as much as I love all the original covers from The Lunar Chronicles. This cover is gorgeous and I love the colors used and how Cress is in the cover.

Cover from my Country (Portugal):


I really like the portuguese cover. It’s pretty different from the original one but I like that it still features Cress and the colors used.

Favorite Covers:

I already told you why I like the first two covers. Now let’s talk about the surprise in this list. I actually like the russian cover. It’s pretty good and I love the art used. Yea I would change  a few things but overall I really like this cover.

Least Favorite Covers:

I do like the Bulgarian cover because it reminds me of Tangled but when I saw that they used a Barbie I really didn’t like it. It could have been so much better. The Thai cover reminds of manga and the cover from Vietnam is a little bit weird. My least favorite is the swedish cover. The girl is just too creepy and I don’t like it.

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

  1. OH MY GOD, did you just name a favorite in the series?! 😛 I love the original one, and the russian one is pretty – I almost included the one for Cinder in my favorites too! I think the Bulgarian one is similar to the spanish editions, they’re not so bad =/ My least favorite is the swedish, and why does she have red hair? is she a cross between cress and scarlet?

  2. I love Cress!! My favorite books of the series thus far (I haven’t read Winter yet….eeekkk!). How cool that you found and showcased all those covers! I love the Portugal one especially. I am signing up on Goodreads now for your weekly meme. Sounds super fun!

    In case you’re interested, I reviewed Cress a few weeks ago. You can check it out here:
