Today it’s Book Traveling Thursday and it’s my first time participating!! I was really excited to participate in this meme and I’m happy that I finally get to do so! Book Traveling Thursday is a weekly meme hosted and created by Catia and Danielle and you can find more information about how to participate (Spoiler: It’s easy 😉) in their Goodreads group! The weekly topics are posted there each month as well! If you’re interested definitely check out that group!
This week’s topic is: We all have to start out of somewhere. Choose a book that got you into reading. I think this is a great topic to start with, as everyone has one of those books and it’s not too hard to find a good one 🙂 I chose Inkheart by Cornelia Funke! Cornelia Funke is a really famous author in Germany, since she’s a German author who is also quite successful internationally.I believe that almost every German kid my age has read one of her books in elementary school, and so have I – obviously! Let’s go!!
Cover from my country (Germany):
and Original Cover
I really love these original book covers a lot! They match the topic of the book perfectly and even show some scenes from the book. I also find it really great that the cover displays some letters the way they are also printed inside the book, at the beginning of each chapter!
As I said before I love the German edition A LOT! But I also found this gift edition on Goodreads and while it doesn’t really have all that much to do with the story it’s still really pretty and I’m in love with the gold and red! Also I quite like how detailed all that golden drawing stuff is 😍
Least Favorite Cover(s):
I just do not like this Italian cover at all! I feel like it is way too dark for this story, it’s main characters, and the age group the book was originally aimed at. I don’t like the color scheme and also whatever has that thing coming out of the book to do with the actual story?? It’s just not my thing, I guess 😅
