Foreign Cover Friday: Mockingjay

FYI: There will be no FCF next friday! (3/23) 
I'm taking a one-week break from FCF so I can watch The Hunger Games, and type up a review that day.

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:

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
 Languages: English (US, CAN, UK, AU)

There are a lot of foreign covers for Mockingjay! It's been translated into a lot of different languages; some of which, I haven't seen since my Twilight FCF. My favorite is definitely the Chines language edition below; I'm really liking the open sky above the Mockingjay, and the clean design. My favorite title translations are: Glow of Freedom (Serbian), The Strength of Defiance (Czech), and the simple one-word title of Hope (Portuguese edition #2).

As with the Twilight one, I am highlighting the covers that are different from the original Mockingjay cover above, and then the rest will be grouped together. Enjoy!
