Foreign Cover Friday: Wings


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 cover is:

Wings by Aprilynne Pike

This cover is gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. Not only that, but if you've read the book, you know the genius behind using flower petals as the wings. It's one of my favorite covers. After looking up the foreign covers though, I see that almost all of them are just as gorgeous. Take a look:



First up, we have the Spanish, Catalan, and Bulgarian covers. They're pretty close to the original, except for the Bulgarian cover, which I think is pretty.
Translations for all three covers: Wings

Next: The French and Portuguese covers. These covers are pretty different, but I love them! They look very urban, and the pink is a nice color choice.
French translation: Wings
Portuguese translation: The Kiss of the Elves

These are the German and Polish covers. Aren't those wings on the German cover gorgeous?
German translation: Elf Kiss
Polish translation: Laurel wings

Lastly, we have the Dutch and English children's covers. I'm not too into the Dutch cover, but I like the playfulness of the English children's cover.


What are your thoughts? 
Which covers do you like? Which do you hate?

Thanks for joining me for Foreign Cover Friday!

  5. I prefer the covers without the girls on the front. There's just something beautiful about those petals and flowers with a title like Wings (I have no idea what it's about!).

  6. I can't decide. I like the French and Portuguese ones and I think the Bulgarian one is maybe too pretty? I'll have two favorites: French and Portuguese.
