Book Traveling Thursday is an awesome weekly event held by Danielle and Catia over on Goodreads. There’s a new topic every week and the deal is to share why you chose the book and four different covers of the book: The Original Cover, Your Countries Cover, Your Least Favourite and Your Favourite.
The topic this week: It’s back to school time! Choose a book set on high school or college.
Okays, so for this one I had to choose a book I haven’t posted about recently, which is kinda hard because a lot of books I read are set in schools hahaha. Anyway, eventually I decided on this wonderful book that I enjoyed a lot when I was in high school :). It’s a great story told through both perspectives of Bryce and Juli from the moment they met when they were in Grade 2 and Bryce became Juli’s neighbour in this little American town, into Junior High, where things get a little more complicated. It’s a thought provoking and adorable little story and I love it heaps. The film is also really good!
Flipped (2001) by Wendelin Van Draanen
Once again, there isn’t a cover I can find that is purely an Australian edition. So I went with this Macmillan edition, which is the very same one I read. Not much different to the original really haha.
Least Favourite Covers:
This is the Indonesian translation edition. There are quite a few of this book like this. I don’t like it all, the cheesy photograph and the ‘you never forget your first love’ caption. Eh…
And I don’t even know what to say about this Russian cover…Which is admittedly worse than the one above!
This Vietnamese edition is so cute! I’ve never seen it before but I think it’s adorable. It’s very fitting to the story, much like the chicken ones are (which I do quite like as well).
Well, that’s it. Which one is your favourite? 🙂
