I really need to stop finding memes that I want to do that are on the same day as memes I already participate in!
I’m also cheating as it is 2 hours into Friday, no longer Thursday but oh well!
Book Travelling Thursday is a weekly meme created by Danielle and Cátia. All you have to do is a pick a book that is related to the theme, the themes are announced on the Goodreads page. Once you have chosen a book you need to find the original cover, the covers from your country, your favourite cover and your least favourite cover.
So this weeks theme is: Fall is just around the corner: A book that brings you warm feelings
So I’m not normal, that as simple as it gets. The book I chose is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, all the HP books end on a kind of good note compared to the really bad thing that has been building up all book, but out of all I loved Prisoner of Azkaban the most, everything you learnt about Sirius and how everything turned out just makes me so happy!
I’m pretty sure that this was the original cover, so if I’m wrong I’m sorry!
The copy I own is similar to this but slightly different as it is the UK Bloomsbury Celebratory edition.
Cover from my country:
I tried googling it with no success, I live in Australia and most of the time with just get the UK edition of books!
Left is the new UK Bloomsbury Children’s Edition.
I love that they added the stag to the cover of this edition and the illustration is just beautiful! I also really like the colours on this edition.
Middle is the UK Bloomsbury Celebratory edition, which is the one I own.
I like that this one is basically the same as the original (which I really like) but it just has that bit more, I also like the gold on the spine, which you obviously can’t see in this photo but that what it has on my real copy. I wish I had the full set in this edition so the spines would be metallic.
Right is the iBooks/Kindle edition.
I really like this cover! My favourite thing is that when the image is smaller or further away the island looks like a wolf howling, I’m guessing this was on purpose and I love it!
Left is the Bloomsbury Adult edition
To me if you removed the words from this book it looks like the cover of a murder mystery or something, there is nothing to refer it to Prisoner of Azkaban.
Right is the American Original Scholastics edition.
I just don’t like the illustrations! The faces of Hermione and Harry are really chubby and Harry is meant to be the opposite of that! and Buckbeak looks like a bird that has just smacked into a glass door.
Well, that’s it! Which cover for Prisoner of Azkaban is your favourite! Also, comment a link below to your Book Traveling Thursday or just tell me and I will check it out!
It’s interesting seeing different covers for books, I don’t really think about it as I just buy what available to me, so I probably haven’t seen half of them!
