Book Traveling Thursdays #9 – Freebie Week

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme hosted by Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog and Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much. Each week, you pick a book related to the theme and choose different editions of the cover: the original cover, the cover from your country (if different from the original), your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover.

This week is a freebie week, which is almost worst because it took me forever to decide which book to feature! I decided to choose a book most of us all know and love: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Although I only have one set of Harry Potter books, I’m a believer that one cannot have too many copies of the series. The Scholastic 15th Anniversary editions and Bloomsbury 20th Anniversary Hogwarts House editions are both stunning, and I can’t wait until the day they join my bookshelf!

Never judge a book by it’s cover! This week’s topic asks us to pick a book that may be ugly on the outside, but beautiful on the inside. It was a no-brainer for me. I absolutely love Alison Goodman’s Lady Helen series. It’s like Regency romance meets paranormal fantasy and it’s awesome. It even features a romance that is all slow burn and built-up tension, which I’m a huge sucker for. Unfortunately, the covers for those books are terrible. They are truly awful. Since the Australian editions seem to be the least hideous (at least in a language I speak), I had to have them shipped overseas just so I could have them for my bookshelf!

This week, the topic is to pick a book that we would want to read repeatedly. For me, the answer is obvious: The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon. It’s no secret that I’ve been gushing about this book (and the author) for the past couple of months now. I’m still not over how amazing it was, and since the sequel, The Queen and the Cure, was just released, all the feels have returned. The Bird and the Sword is seriously my favorite book, and if you like fantasy and well-written romance I highly recommend it!

Note: Apparently, there are only two different covers for this book, so I changed up the headings a bit since I couldn’t stick to the “rules”.

This week the theme was to select a book with a red cover, which is fitting since the last Book Traveling Thursday was a blue cover book. I chose The Mime Order, which the second book in Samantha Shannon’s The Bone Season series; a young adult paranormal/fantasy series about clairvoyants set in futuristic London. I’m a big fan of these books, so if you haven’t checked it out, you should!

This week the theme was to select a book with a blue cover. I chose one of my favorite historical fiction novels, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it! It’s a stunningly beautiful book about two different characters during World War II-a blind French girl and a German boy-whose paths eventually cross as they struggle to survive the war.
