Book Traveling Thursdays: International Women’s Day Edition

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly event hosted by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much. Each participant picks a book to match a theme, then finds the original cover, the covers for your country, and identifies favorite/least favorite covers. For more information, check out the Goodreads page.

This week’s theme was based around International Women’s Day and asked bloggers to highlight a book with a strong female character. Since I reviewed the newest book in the Green Rider series earlier this week, I have the main character Karigan on the brain. She’s a strong, brave woman…who also faces weakness and fear and still manages to push onwards. I admire her as a character, and the series is one I truly love, so I chose the first book from the series for this week: Green Rider by Kristen Britain.

Original Cover

US Covers

So, they’re basically all the same. Just some slight variations in the font styling and color.

Favorite Covers

Czech//French//UK

The US cover in green font was my original edition of this book. However, I just really love these covers more. The Czech one has a beautiful border and I like the image of Karigan from the back. The French cover is similar to the original, but I love that there’s more scenery and it’s just more picturesque. Finally, I’ve recently seen these UK covers for the series, and I absolutely adore them. The understated color and simple image are wonderful…and I’m going to try & add those UK covers to my collection.

Least Favorite Covers

German

Both of these covers are German and I just don’t love them. The golden lettering is a wee bit over the top for me on the first, and I don’t love the image or color of the second. The second would actually fit books later on in the series, but not the original one, in my opinion.
