Foreign Cover Friday: The Adoration of Jenna Fox



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:


The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
Covers: US hardcover and paperback
I like both of these covers, simply because they both show parts of the body (which has become overdone), but neither of them focus on the body part that is shown. The hardcover's focus is the beautiful butterfly, and the paperback's focus is the puzzle pieces. I like them both, but I like the paperback the best; it looks truly puzzling, and I would pick it up in an instant.


 Covers: Australian, Catalan, Chinese
Is it just me, or does the girl on the Australian cover look blue? I'm not sure why, but it totally freaks me out. I like the Catalan cover, especially the beautiful font used for the title. I'm not so sure about the Chinese cover.


Catalan translation: The Beloved Jenna Fox
Chinese translation: Jenna Loved


 Covers: Dutch, Finnish, German
I love the low-key photo used for this Dutch cover. The eye is the focus, and you can barely make out a nose and lips. To be honest, I haven't read this book yet (I'm reading it next week), so I have no idea what all the butterflies are for. The one on the Finnish cover is pretty, though.


Dutch translation: Life of Jenna Fox
Finnish translation: Who is Jenna Fox?
German translation:  Adoration of Jenna


Covers: French
More butterflies! The left cover is definitely eye-catching, but the more I look at it, the more I'm reminded of an old textbook cover I once had for biology.

 French translation: Jenna Fox, Forever 


Covers: Hungarian, Italian
Love the cover on the left, don't like the cover on the right...especially when you combine it with the title!

Hungarian translation: Beloved Jenna Fox
Italian translation: Inside Jenna


Covers: Spanish, UK
This Spanish cover is interesting. At first I though it was showing ghosts, but then I realized it was the same girl in different positions. I'd love to know what it has to do with the book because while it wouldn't be something that I would pick up in a fiction section, I would definitely pick it up if I were browsing the memoir section and wanted something to read. The UK cover is cool with the Ice-blue eye and title. It's not my favorite, but I would definitely be interested and pick it up in a store.

Spanish Translation: Adored Jenna Fox

  1. My favourite is the US paperback, but this book doesn't appeal to me in the least and I'd probably not pick up any of the covers if I saw them in a bookstore.

  2. In this case, I'm definitely a puzzle piece fan :) Happy weekend darling!

  4. Oh the Italian translation!! I'm immature because I laughed out loud :) I like the US paperback, Dutch, and Spanish covers.

  5. Oh wow! So many translations and covers! Personally my favorite is the US PAPERBACK edition which is also the same as the Hungarian cover. I never read this book before, must be real good though.

    I love these foreign cover posts! I need to do them myself!

    -thank you&come again.

  6. Definitely intrigued by the Spanish cover (and still giggling over the textbook comment, because I think my school used the same one!). And I totally dig the puzzle piece cover.

  7. On second thought, the watery Italian was is pretty cool.

  8. Most of these are pretty awesome. I think the Catalan one is my favourite, though.

  9. I read this one a few years ago. I thought it was fantastic. It was one of my five star reads of the year. I am listening to it now on audio so I can read the sequel. I hope you enjoy it.

    P.S. My favorite cover is the U.S. hardback with the butterfly, although the other covers are pretty intriguing. The Italian cover makes a lot of sense once you read the story, but the translation and cover aren't that appealing at first glance.

  11. Jenna's journey to discover who she is and who she was will resonate with readers on many levels, as she questions who or what defines a person, what gives us worth and what really makes us human.
