Book Traveling Thursdays

Hey Bookends,

It is time for another Book Traveling Thursday. This is a meme in which you pick a book based off of a theme. After that you pick that you look through all of the different editions and show the original cover, the cover from your home country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover. You can go to the goodreads group to find out the weekly themes.

This weeks theme is: a book you loved from a genera you don’t read often. 

For this prompt I picked The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams because I don’t usually read straight humor. Sure, I read some funny books, but never straight humor. Anyway I decided to just show you guys my favorite and lease favorite covers. Here we go.

This is my least favorite cover. In fact, I absolutely hate this cover. The collage of colors and pictures hurts my eyes and the text gets lost into the background.

This is my all time favorite cover. Maybe I’m bias because this is the edition I read but I love this. I like that there are only two colors and one graphic on the whole book. Sometimes I think simpler is better when it comes to book covers. This is one of those times.

 


So that is all I have for this post. I would love to know your thoughts on either of these covers for this book and what book you would choose for this topic.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglad Adams

I gave this book 5/5 stars.

I have to admit, I had no idea what this book was about before going into it. I had heard so many great things about it. Then it showed up on my summer reading options and I knew that I had to read it. This is one of most random books I have ever read. Yet it was so funny and clever. The characters in this novel were very well written and they also developed in a awesome way. The plot twist in this book were phenomenal and could not be seen from a mile away. This book was written just to make you laugh, I could see this being an animated T.V. show for adults. I can not wait to watch the movie now. I truly loved this book, I found it a quick read and would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, silliness, and great writing.

You can find a summery of this book here on goodreads.
