Foreign Cover Friday: Blood and Chocolate

FYI: I'll be in the hospital with my son again this weekend. Just another routine stay (nothing to worry about), but I may be slow in responding to emails and comments for a few days. Thanks for your patience!


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:

Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause

These are the US hardcover and US paperback covers. I really don't like this US hardcover picture, though. It just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. But I adore the paperback cover! I like the silhouettes of the girl and the wolf, and tells you exactly what this book is about: wolves.
Side note: if you haven't read this book, it is great!

This week's Foreign Cover Friday is pretty short. I could only find four foreign covers. I am pretty sure there are more, but I wasn't able to track them down. If you happen to know of one I missed, let me know!


Covers: Croatian and French
Croatian translation: Blood and Chocolate
French translation: Blood and Chocolate

Not a huge fan of either of these covers. The Croatian cover isn't bad, it just doesn't tell me anything about the book. The French cover tells me that it's about wolves, but it really doesn't appeal to me.

Covers: German and Spanish
Spanish translation: Blood and Chocolate

I love, love, love the font of the German cover. It's so pretty, especially combined with the two different colors. The photo doesn't tell me anything about the book either, though. As for the Spanish cover, well...I love it! The girl's reflection tells you that she isn't just your average girl.


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

  1. I actually only really like the German one this week!

    I haven't heard of this book either but it certainly does have an interesting title!

  2. I like the German, Spanish and Croatian ones. They'd probably convince me to pick it up in a bookshop, although none of them illustrate it's particularly about wolves. The French one looks like a cheap dime novel. I don't find the US covers appealing, either.
    I posted my link to my Foreign Cover Friday!

  3. OMG I LOVE this book!
    So glad you featured it!
    I'm partial to the US hardcover.
    The Croatian and German ones are cool but don't really give anything away.

  5. Meep, I kinda disagree with your call on the US covers. The one on the left (the hardcover edition?) catches my attention while the one on the right makes me think of a photoshop session gone wrong. :S

    Agreed that the Spanish cover is amazing--it's probably my favorite. And yeah, the French cover kinda makes it look like a graphic novel.

    Lissa: Nice choices! I don't really find the hardcover US version either, although I really like the paperback. But I love the German and Spanish!

    Juju: Me too! It was such a great read. :) Thanks for stopping by!

    Alexis: Yep. I do NOT like that French cover, either. Lol.

    Lori: I actually never thought of that, but I can see what you mean. It does look like a photoshop creation. I really like the Spanish cover, too. Love it, even! :)
