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:
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
I literally drooled over the original cover of Across the Universe (left) when it first came out. It is just so gorgeous! There's something about the stars and space that my eye is very attracted to. And the close, but no cigar, thing with their lips plays with the title nicely. But when the paperback version came out, I found myself drawn to that one as well. I deep green and blue hues, combined with the circles that draw the eye to the girl in the center is eye-catching as well.
I'm not sure if it has anything to do with how long I've been exposed the the original cover (maybe I'm too used to it), but I can't decide which one I like more.
This week's FCF post is pretty short. There are exactly two foreign covers for this book that I could find. But by the time I realized how few there were, it was too late; I already had the comparison of these two US covers fighting in my mind. So please forgive this brief US cover war post.
Title translation: Beyond the Universe
Title translation: Godspeed: The Journey Begins
