Foreign Cover Friday: Hush, Hush

Foreign Cover Friday is a weekly meme hosted by The Reading Fever, where foreign covers of the books we know and love are spotlighted and discussed. To join, either pick your favorite foreign cover or pick many foreign covers, and start discussing!

This week's featured cover is:
Hush, Hush
Becca Fitzpatrick

(US Hardcover & Paperback)
I think this is a very dynamic cover and it fits really well with the book and it's descriptions. 
I find a lot of the time when real people are on the cover they don't match up with the character descriptions at all, which drives me nuts! This guy fits Becca's description of Patch and it also illustrates his fall.

(US Graphic Novel)
I wouldn't want this to be the cover of the regular version but I think it works fine for a graphic novel.

(United Kingdom)
This one is pretty much the same as the US version except instead of pure black&white we get a little color. I must say I really like the blue. 

This one has a lot of the same elements as the US version but still very different. I don't like the positioning of Patch very much, the way he's standing with his arms open, I feel like he's waiting to be beamed up to heaven or something. 

Loving the blue!

I can see where they got the ideas for this one. Feathers, from angel wings of course and then I assume that's the gate from the Delphic Amusement Park? So it's illustrating things that are actually in the book I just think it's kinda boring. 

This one is so completely different from all the rest its fun to see but it doesn't really tell you anything about the book. That bright fuchsia color with all the hand drawn hearts everywhere make it look like more of a middle grade cover. 

I think it's funny that the only thing different about this one is that Patch is facing in the opposite direction but it completely changes the look. His position looks more abnormal this way and doesn't flow like the others.

This one is my favorite other than the US one. It's so simple but with the strong contrast between the white feather and the black background it really makes the feather jump out at you. 

This one would have to be my least favorite. Again with the fuchsia, it doesn't work well at all. Plus the boy whom I assume is supposed to be Patch looks like a child. 

So what does everyone think? Which ones do you love? Which ones do you hate?


  1. I have to go with either the US or United kingdom :) I like the german as well but I feel like the blue is too bright. I liked the dark mysterious feel that the Grey/black of the U.S gave, but prefer the subtle pop of color in the UK one :) Great post and thanks for stopping by mine!

  2. The U.S. and Italy covers are my fav---they are pretty similar so that makes sense ;) They both create a dark mood which I love... verrrry lovely ;)

  3. Hi Amanda! I hate to inform you this, but Blogger delete my blog. This is false accusation of spam and I don’t know how they come to see my blog as spam blog. Please be so kind to check out my new blog: I have requested for review of my blog to Google team. I’m hoping to get my blog restored ASAP, but I haven’t read anyone telling me that their blog has been restored.

    I’m still working on design of my new blog and reposting my reviews from Goodreads. This is a hurtful situation for me so I’m asking for all your support. Thank you very much!

  4. Sorry I'm so late commenting on this! I totally agree with you on the Dutch one. He looks like a child! I think my favorite (not having read the books) is the Taiwanese cover. It's very eye-catching. I also like the contrast of the blue sky and red feathers on the UK cover.

    Thanks for participating!
