I had to write 2 papers yesterday and I am WIPED OUT, so today is going to be mostly book tags, but I’m going to try to squeeze in the book review I promised on Tuesday before tonight. As always, Book Traveling Thursdays are a weekly meme created by the ever-lovely Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you can see at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite and least favorite.
This week’s topic is There’s still more love to share… Choose a book that deserves more love.
Original Cover + US Cover:
This post-apocalyptic story of a flight attendant saddled with three young kids after a bird flu decimates the global population is powerful, gripping, and very slow-burn in the best way imaginable. I loved it, with all its subtlety and quiet strength, and the fact that Jiselle doesn’t need to be a loud and proud SFP to carry a book with grace.
The US cover is my overall favorite, but this cover features a setting from a specific scene in the book, and the still life of the frame is so clear, with the shadows on the house and the light framing the empty chairs symbolizing that no one sits there any more…it’s powerful to me, and the subtle quietness of the story is reflected here.
Least Favorite Cover(s):
The French mass market paperback cover is pretty, but I prefer the darkness and shadows of the other covers because of the post-apoc theme of the book, and this cover doesn’t represent it as well. But it’s still really nice to look at and hopefully made this rarely talked about book stand out on bookshelves in France.
