Living in Germany gives me the perfect opportunity to compare original covers with the ones German publishers choose. Sometimes they're gorgeous, sometimes they make me cringe, but it's always interesting to see different covers for the same novel.
Cover Comparisons is a weekly feature here at Fictional Distraction.
Last week's winner is the new US cover of Blood Red Road by Moira Young.
A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
(US / UK / GER)
Like so many books, I have yet to read this one as well, but I remember adding it to my to-read list without really reading the summary intently (which is awesome, by the way). And that's just because of this über-gorgeous US cover! I love the colours, the typography - everything! It would look incredibly gorgeous on my shelf. I can't really warm up to either the UK or the German cover though, which is probably because they actually seem quite cold and don't make me feel anything. I don't think I'd pick up either version in a book store.
