Bookish Chat : Cinder Covers and Prequel
This is part two of my Cinder love fest. For my review, click here
After having read lots of other blog posts on the subject, I have become fascinated by the different covers that are published for different countries. The Cinder covers are a perfect example of the variety and differences that exist.
What do you think of some of these other versions of the Cinder cover? I’m partial to them all, the more you look the more you see. The red shoe (US and UK cover) is my favourite. To me, it depicts a feminine, human lead but then we see the cyborg parts that give it a futuristic, exciting edge.
The last cover (Catalan) resembles the glass slipper from the classic fairy tale. The first (Spanish) is just pretty and I love the one shoe on, one shoe missing twist. The girl in black (Italian) doesn’t catch my attention or fire my imagination as much but it is still a cool cover. I’m not sure why we need different covers in different countries; I’m assuming it’s down to market research as to what will sell better in different populations. I’m not complaining though, I love looking at them all.
And finally as a special treat to those who have yet to read Cinder, here is the concept art and Free Prequel called Glitches. Just be warned, it may lead to an impulsive purchase, Bookish Trish and Between the Lines can accept no responsibility for this! Happy reading 🙂
