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:
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
A quick pick for this week; most of the foreign covers are similar to the US cover, but there are four very unique covers as well. Enjoy!
Finnish translation: Psychic
Polish translation: Psychic
German translation: Flames n 'Roses: A Life Less Supernatural
Portuguese translation: Paranormal
Russian translation: Prediction of the Elves
Italian translation: Paranormally or Paranormal mind (I can't tell which is the right translation.)
My favorite is definitely the Italian cover. It's got that fantastical feel to it, but with the girl's hair flying up around her it manages to display the paranormal feeling really well. I really like this cover and want one for myself!
I'm not a fan of the others, even the US cover; it looks too much like other YA covers out there--girl, dress, wind blowing her hair--to stand out to me. I do like the bright pink silhouette on the lace backgroung that's on the German cover though; the main character, Evie, would love it!
What are your thoughts?
Which covers do you like? Which do you hate?
Thanks for joining me for Foreign Cover Friday!
