This week’s theme is A Book You’re Thankful for – I decided to choose Twilight by Stephenie Meyer for this one. Why?
Well whilst in school I liked to read but I would never read for fun only when I was forced to for my English lessons until I picked up Twilight. I fell in love with this series to the point I would re-read the series every week. Twilight made me fall in love with reading for pleasure too, without this series I wouldn’t have known the amount of happiness I could get from reading at home and escaping into a new world.
I owe the series a-lot of gratitude.
Original Cover and Cover from the UK
Left to Right – 1st Line – UK/US Movie Edition, Czech Republic, Germany, Russia
2nd Line – Spanish, Thailand , Indonesia, US/UK White Edition
These are actually the two covers I own myself, the original Black Cover was my first copy and the white cover is my second copy and it is simply gorgeous. The pages are outlined in red and the bookspine has Twilight written in Red writing. It looks gorgeous and truly stands out on your bookshelf, I only ever purchased the first book with the white cover but maybe one day I will own the rest so I have the full white collection… when I have that beauty and the beast library I constantly dream about.
I can’t actually decide which one of the others I like least, because I’m not really a fan of any of them. I don’t like when book covers have models on them, I like being able to mentally envision the character for myself rather than being influenced by the one on the cover.
If I saw the German cover on a bookshelf I think I would also think it was a Victorian type book, it reminds me of Jane Austen and Jane Eyre. Rather than a contemporary vampire romance novel.
There we have my Book Travelling Thursday!
