Happy Thursday guys! Hope you guys are having a lovely morning/night/week.
Book Traveling Thursday is a weekly meme created by Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog & Catia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much. The themes are announced over on the Goodreads group page. The concept is simple, every week you have to pick a book that fits the theme of the week, explain why your chosen book fits the theme, look at covers from multiple editions and multiple countries for the book you chose, and finally, include pictures of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover.
This weeks theme prompts us to choose a book set in a fictional world. This week I chose Narnia or The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe book one in the Chronicles of Narnia series. I read this book ages ago and Narnia will always be one of those books that I can look back on and have nothing but fond memories for. Magic, mythical beasts, talking animals, breathtaking landscapes… what’s not to love?
The majority of all books have the kids and Aslan pictured on the cover but I adore the Estonian cover! I’d love to own it. The Swedish cover reminds me of Christmas.
Least Favorite Covers
The Spanish and Japanese covers have too much going on for my taste. I don’t know what’s going on in that Japanese cover.
Goodreads Description: ‘They say Aslan is on the move. Perhaps he has already landed,’ whispered the Beaver. Edmund felt a sensation of mysterious horror. Peter felt brave and adventurous. Susan felt as if some delightful strain of music had just floated by. And Lucy got that feeling when you realize it’s the beginning of summer. So, deep in the bewitched land of Narnia, the adventure begins.
They opened a door and entered a world–Narnia–the land beyond the wardrobe, the secret country known only to Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. Lucy is the first to stumble through the back of the enormous wardrobe in the professor’s mysterious old country house, discovering the magic world beyond. At first, no one believes her. But soon Edmund, Peter and Susan, too, discover the magic and meet Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves. And in the blink of an eye, they are changed forever.
Thanks for reading guys! Hope you have a great Thursday!
