Book Traveling Thursdays is a meme started by Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog and Catia @ The Girl Who Reads Too Much. They have a Good Reads group that you can join where they post all of the month’s themes. You just need to post the original cover, cover from your country and your favorite & least favorite covers.
Today is my birthday! I’m now 24, which I’m sure seems ancient to most of ya’ll lol. I still wanted to get a post up, though, so here we go!
This week’s theme is Your Favorite Book of the Year So Far.
I’ve read some amazing books so far this year, a few actually ending up on the all-time favorites list. This week I chose Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. She completely tore my heart out with this novel set in WWII. I simply can’t recommend this one enough.
Original US cover, English paperback, Germany
The original cover is gorgeous and amazing on it’s own. But I’m also extremely keen to the English paperback edition. The barbed wire turned into birds, the glittering sea. It’s beautiful yet haunting at the same time. I’m honestly thinking I might have to get this copy to add to my collection. I don’t know what the hell is going on in the Germany version. I get the ocean and the life saver, but did it have to be so randomly placed?
Which version is your favorite?! Let me know in the comments below. You can add Salt to the Sea to your GoodReads here. You can also purchase yourself a copy of this book (which I highly, highly recommend you do so) on Amazon here.
