Book Traveling Thursdays: Uprooted

Wheee October is here! And that means the return of SWEATER WEATHER! Yaaaas. Seriously my favorite season, and mostly because it’s cool without being extremely cold, and also the foliage. So. Orange. And warm. And lovely!

I’ve been in a bit of a book slump the past week or two, so I haven’t brought myself to review any of the books I’ve read. Scratch that, “listened to,” because let’s be honest, I’ve had more audiobook listens than I’ve cracked open a page. I need to remedy that, I really do.

But this isn’t about book reviews, it’s about book covers!

Book Traveling Thursdayย is a book meme that involves book covers from different parts of the world. Rules include picking a book according to the theme and then posting the original covers, covers from your country, your favorite covers, and your least favorite covers. This week, the theme is in commemoration of Johnny Appleseed: “A Book That Originally Had Flowers or Foliage on the Cover.”

Uprooted by Naomi Novik fits the bill! The original cover is lovely, really, and considering the story’s antagonist is practically the Woods, it makes sense that there’d be foliage in the cover! In this case, a lovely rose and a snaking of vines and roots. And the evil, evil tree.

Original Cover

And since the US cover is mainly the original, I wanted to highlight the UK covers as well because holy crap, I love them a little bit more than the original cover (and I already think the original cover is beautiful).

UK Covers

Favorite Covers

There are two on this, because I am absolutely in love with the Hungarian and I think the Slovenian is really cute, too.

Least Favorite Cover

I will admit this is pretty eerie, but I’m still not a fan of full-on face for a cover.

What do you think of these covers? Do you have a favorite?

  1. I agree with your pick for you least favourite. Iโ€™m not one for full face covers either plus itโ€™s not really how I imagined Agnieska looking or being. The other covers are beautiful though ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜

  2. I’m for the original cover probably because it’s the one I bought. I read the book at the end of summer and truly enjoyed it, especially how Agnieska owned herself–very nice. That particular cover seemed to compliment the text and matched the tone the book set in my mind.

    As an aside, are you going to NaNoWriMo this year, Mari? I am. First time in years I’ve got the time :-).

    1. I really should add this copy to my collection. I read an advanced copy but never actually purchased it, and I did love the book!

      And despite my misgivings and most likely I will probably go crazy in November, I have decided that I am gonna nanowrimo this year. XD
