It’s BTT time! This is a weekly meme created by Danielle at Danielle’s Book Blog and Catia at TheGirlWhoReadTooMuch. You can find all of the information you’ll need to participate on the Goodreads page.
This week’s topic is We all have to start somewhere. Choose a book that got you into reading. This one is super easy for me. I’ve mentioned this book a few times in my blog and the way it shaped my reading journey but I’ll go into more detail now.
SO let’s get started!
My choice for this week is Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. I’ve always been a reader but this is the book that started my love for Young Adult books. In seventh grade, my science teacher at the time would read this book aloud to us while we had free time before the end of the period. She ended up reading the whole book then switched to something else but I was still super interested in it so I went and got the first and second. Slowly but surely, I finished the collection and the series and that not only sparked my love for YA but also for fanfiction which I still read and I’m just really grateful for this book.
Original Cover & My Country Cover
This cover is almost iconic by this point. Which I think is one of the reasons why there’s not a lot of cover changes in other countries because this one is so recognizable. I don’t feel any type of way about it, it definitely could’ve been worse but I really liked the explanation the author gave to the reason behind this one and the rest of the covers.
My Favorite Cover
The movies have a special place in my heart. I’ve watched them a billion times since I own them all on DVD and for a long time there were my comfort films, what I watched when I was feeling down. So while this is technically not a cover, it’s the movie poster tie in, it’s the cover that automatically transports me back to my fangirl obsessed days and I love it.
My Least Favorite Cover
Honestly, it really doesn’t get more disastrously ugly than with these covers. Most publishers kept the iconic cover above when publishing this book in other countries (Thank God) but I don’t know what it is in South Asian and North European countries where they think changing covers is a good idea. This list in order is: Thai, Russian, Indonesian, German and Czech covers. I can’t tell you which one apalls me more because it’s a really close race, but can I just say, Indonesia, Bella isn’t even blonde?! What the heck??
So that’s it for my choices! Let me know what you think of the covers and if you agree with my favorites. Thanks for reading. See you on my next post!
