This weeks book is...


Wendelin Van Drannen

(US Version)
I may be biased because this is the version I read but this one is by far my favorite of the covers!
It's so simple and clean cut, which makes it very eye-catching. If you haven't read the story you might think an upside down chick it a little strange but trust me, it fits the story perfectly! 

(US Movie Edition)
This one is nice too. That tree also has a big part in the story so I can see why they would want it on the cover. However, if I'm not mistaken Bryce and Juli never actually sit in the tree together, which just ruins this whole idea for me.

(Thai Version)
This one has a strong relation to the story as well. So far all the designers have done a great job of capturing key objects or moments from the story. 

(Polish Version)
I was a little confused when I first saw this one because this is the exact same image that appears on the US dvd cover.

 (Version Unknown)
It's funny how tweeking just a few things can change something so much. 
The blue background just looks awful in my opinion, and the chick facing to the right instead of the left just doesn't look as nice, I don't know why.

(Indonesian Version)
This to me looks like another movie cover rather than a book cover. While I agree that the boy makes a really good Bryce, that girl doesn't look at all like Juli. 

Any thoughts?

    1. Agreed! Thanks for stopping by and commenting =)

  2. Oh, the Polish version is sooo cute! It looks a little like Middle-Grade book, but I like it so much! I'm not the biggest fan of the Indonesian version either, it seems like a different movie for me! :P

    1. I like the Polish one too! It actually is a Middle-Grade book. Opps, I should have mentioned that.

  3. Oh, I don't like the blue one either. It is really funny how a few changes make such a big effect. I really have to see this movie...

    1. You really do! Go watch it RIGHT. NOW. HAhaha ;)
