Foreign Cover Friday is a weekly meme hosted by me (The Reading Fever), where foreign covers of the books we know and love are spotlighted and discussed. To join, either pick your favorite foreign cover, or pick many foreign covers, and start discussing!
This week's featured covers are:
The Iron King, and The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
While I like these covers a lot, I think the third book (The Iron Queen) is my favorite of the US covers. That said, I like all of them. I'm a huge fan of swirls, vines, and color.
I only have three foreign covers to show, mainly because they are the only covers I could find that didn't have the same layout with a different name. I'm getting tired of that, and figured you--my lovely readers--are too. The only one I will show that is like this is the French cover of The Iron King, because I lurve it:
The font is different; softer. I love how the swirls come up from the word 'princesse.' Plus, I feel like everything looks better in French. ;)
Translation: The Cursed Princess.
These two German covers are hugely different from the US cover, but I think they are super cool! I love the feather eyelashes and the bright colors.
Super geeky moment: I envy the makeup artist who put these looks together. Feather lashes are in, and it's a style I like!
The cover above is The Iron King, titled Suddenly Fey: Summer Night in German, and the one below (the one I'm in LoVe with) is The Iron Daughter, titled Suddenly Fey: Winter Night.
*Sigh* Those titles are bringing good memories of the books back.
What are your thoughts?
Which covers do you like? Which do you hate?
