Beautiful Covers

I don't know what sparked it, but one day, back in May, I cruised through Goodreads to find foreign editions of various books.  I think foreign covers can be really cool and some are works of art.  And I knew I had to share some with you.  So without further ado, here are my top 17 foreign covers.


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - Chinese 
(I just love the colors of this one.)

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - French 
(How adorable is the French cover for this book set in Paris?)

Heist Society by Ally Carter - French 
(And this French cover is just as cute as the former.)

Cinder by Marissa Meyer - Thai
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer - Italian/French/Czech
Cress by Marissa Meyer - Czech
(The Lunar Chronicles have some of the best covers.)

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - Czech
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi - Indonesian
(Both are pretty dress covers, but they play with the titles in a great way.)

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor - German
(I haven't even read this book yet, and I think the German cover is fantastic.)

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo - German
(Although the U.S. editions have great covers, you have to admit
this one is beautiful, too.)

Grave Mercy by Robin La Fevers - Italian (left), Polish (right)
(The one on the left has that perfect fierce assassin look in her eyes,
and the one on the right plays with the original colors and it looks
AMAZING.)

Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers - Russian
(The colors, the weapons, ahhhh!)

Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone - Hungarian
(Reminds me of the U.S. cover but changes it up slightly - nice!)

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - Portuguese

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - Italian
(This is such a cute cover.  Really. I just may have to go to Italy and hunt down a copy.)

22464116
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - Indonesian
(So fun, and I think this represents the book way better than the American cover.)

So what foreign covers have you found and what are your favorites?

  1. Loved this post! I love looking at foreign editions. I am in LOVE with the UK editions of the Throne of Glass series. I'm seriously going to buy them from the book depository. And there are so many beautiful foreign editions of the Lunar Chronicles. I would like one of each please!

  2. Oh, that's awesome! I especially love the "Anna and the French Kiss" one and the "The Fault in Our Stars" one. Cool post idea though!

  3. I love the Thai cover of Cinder. I always thought that her leg would look kinda ugly or at the least out of place, but it looks like it belongs on the cover.
