Book Traveling Thursdays #27 – Book that Made You Ugly Cry

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 Crying is not always bad. Choose a book that made you ugly cry. Fun fact: I rarely cry while reading but I almost cried when I read The Fault in Our Stars (by John Green) and the only reason I didn’t was the fact that I was in a try on my way home and I didn’t want to cry in front of a lot of people. However, I did cry like a baby when I saw the movie for the first time (and also the second time) so I think it’s a good choice for this week theme.

Book Covers Around the World #6


Today I bring you again Book Covers Around the World. Since the movie Paper Towns is going to be released in the coming weeks I decided that today we will be seeing the different covers of the book. Also, if you want to leave some suggestions of which book should go next just tell me in the comments. So let’s start it.


paper towns USUK

What do I have to say about these covers? I don’t like faces in covers which means that I don’t like 3 of these covers. The others ones, I actually like and they are related to the plot. The only exceptions is the yellow cover. It’s too yellow.


papertowns portugal

I have to say that normally I don’t like the portuguese book covers but this is an exception. I like how it has «paper towns». My only problem with this cover is that it is too dark. I would like a little bit more color.


papertowns spain

I like the first cover. It has the «paper towns» and it is colorful but the second one…. too yellow again. But I actually like that it has as town in the cover.


papertowns italy

I don’t like this cover at all. They could have done a lot of things but decided to have a coffee sign in the cover?? Why?? I don’t like it at all.


papertowns france

Once again, I don’t like this cover. It’s even worse than the italian. Why put a traffic sign on the cover? It’s weird.


BO - Aan de bal 3e

Is there a memo anywhere where they decided that the cover would be yellow??? Why? I don’t like it. It’s cool that they have a similar look to the original cover but it’s not that good.


papertowns hungary

The hungarian cover is not that bad. I like the design but I don’t like the color (Are you noticing something common in all the covers that I don’t like??). This cover would be better with other colors.


papertowns poland

This looks like a comic book, or something similar, cover. I think it’s a weird cover for this book.


papertowns russia

I don’t want to be mean but these covers are terrible. I don’t understand these covers, especially the first one. They could have done much better.


papertowns indonesia

I love this cover. I like the design and the font used. The only thing that I would change would be the color. I would try to do a more colorful cover.


papertowns malasya

I don’t like this cover at all. It has nothing to do with the book and it’s weird but at least is not the worst one.

What did you think? Which one is your favourite? Don’t forget, if you want to see the different covers for one particular book tell me in the comments. It could be the next one.

Top 10 Read Authors

Today I was trying to think what I should write about because I had no ideas. I could do a tag but I will be doing a lot of tags in the next weeks so I didn’t want to do it today. I decided that I could my Top 10 Read Authors. This list is going to be a little bit weird because I’m going to be talking about authors that I haven’t read in a few years but I’ve read a lot of books by these authors and they have to be in this list. So let’s start my top 10.

4 Books

Colleen Hoover

With the obsession I’ve been having with Colleen Hoover’s books, the probability of this number increase in the next few weeks is really, really high… trust me.

5 Books

Sarah Addison Allen

John Green

Gayle Forman

Jane Austen

What do I have to say about these authors? First of all, I don’t think I need to explain the Jane Austen thing. I’ve read all of her novels with the exception of Emma (I started the book but I didn’t like it so…) and I love all of them. The other three.. we are talking about authors that as soon as their books are out I will read them, except the Sarah Addison Allen books because I always wait to have them released in portuguese so they don’t mess my bookshelf. I want them to look well. Which reminds me, if you never read anything by Sarah Addison Allen you should. Her books always a little bit of magic and are amazing.

6 Books

Santa Montefiore

Have you ever heard about Meet me Under the Ombu Tree? It’s an amazing book. And what I like about Santa Montefiore’s books is that they can go from the main character childhood to his adulthood and I think that is amazing because you can see the characters development during the different stages of life.

7 Books

Lesley Pearse

I love that Lesley Pearse writes Historical Fiction Romance and I’ve tried to read all of her books that were released in Portugal. She writes amazing books and really big books… They scared me at first but I’m ok with that now

9 Books

Cassandra Clare

Nora Roberts

I think I don’t need to explain the Cassandra Clare thing. I love everything that has to do with the shadowhunters world and, obviously, I’ve read all of her books (Who’s excited with the new TV show?? I don’t know what to expect). About Nora Roberts. A thing you should know is that Nora Roberts is very popular in Portugal. Anyone who reads knows who she is. This means that I’ve read a few of her books when I was younger (but older than 18 =) ).

And the author I’ve read the most is with…

16 Books

Nicholas Sparks

I’m a hopeless romantic and I don’t care with what people say. As soon as Nicholas Sparks releases a book I will read it. I have to. That’s why I’ve read 16 of his books. I have one left and its the one he wrote with is brothers Three Weeks with my Brother. I really have to read it.
