Welcome back to another Book Traveling Thursday!! 🙂 This is a weekly bookish meme created and hosted by Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog and Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much. It is loads of fun finding book fitting the topic and if you would like to try it out you can find the topics as well as some general information in this Goodreads group! 😄
This week’s topic is A book set in another world and I actually thought this topic would be an easy one when I read it, but while actively looking for a book to use I realized that most of the books I read play in a version of our normal world and that obviously doesn’t count as a different world. But in the end I did find a book that has at least one other world in it! That book being Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini!
This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies make it increasingly difficult to live a normal life, and after a completely humiliating incident ruins her first (and perhaps only) real party, she’s ready to disappear.
“Come and be the most powerful person in the world.”
Suddenly, Lily finds herself in a different Salem. One overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women–including Lillian, this world’s version of Lily.
“It will be terrifying. It was for me.”
What made Lily weak at home, makes her extraordinary here. It also puts her in terrible danger. Faced with new responsibilities she can barely understand and a love she never expected, Lily is left with one question: How can she be the savior of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?
So at least I think this is the original cover but I am not 100 % sure. While I do think this cover fits the story it is also a little too depressive for me… I feel like with this cover you just think of the negative sides of the story because it is all so dark and grey.
Cover from my country (Germany):
I actually like both these German covers. The first one is just a pretty, well designed cover, but if I didn’t knew that it was Trial by Fire I wouldn’t have recognized it. The second one I love so much as you will see below. It is the exact same as an American version which I am grateful for!
This cover I think has a wonderful color scheme and the design in the background wonderfully represents the different worlds that exist in this series! Also I like the castle on the bottom as well as the fire present there.
At first this seems like a pretty average and usual cover so I am not even gonna say anything about why it’s awesome, I am just going to show y’all!
