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 Thursday 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.
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).
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.
