The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?

After working together for quiet some time now we discovered more than once that we share an abnormal love for covers. For us as Europeans we always have the choice which cover we prefer, the US or the UK edition. But we often discover that we love another foreign edition even more. This post is all about that strange obsession of finding the best cover of a book. We also want to find out what you think about the covers and hopefully we will discover that we aren’t the only shallow book lovers in the blogoverse. We will post the results of our survey in the next post.

For the first week we choose the Psy-Changeling Series by Nalini Singh. We drooled over these covers for a long time and in our opinion there are some foreign editions worth mentioning, more …

Geekdom of Books: Foreign Releases

This post is really just my opinion on what can go wrong when a book gets published in Germany.

And believe me that happens more than you think. And yes, I’m aware of this just being the minority but it makes me angry nonetheless.

1. Inventing a new English Title for the German edition

I can understand when an English book gets a German title cuz that’s what we all would expect but why would they change a English title into another English …

On Our Bookish Minds: Lets Talk About Book Covers

The old saying of never judge a book by its cover is true most of the time. However, there have been instances when there is a bad cover or even those which do not illustrate the characters realistically, such as the recent controversy about the whitewashing of protagonists in several YA books.

Often these are still good books, just bad cover choices.


I don’t usually let bad covers put me off to a book, but there are times for each of us I am sure it happens for better or worse. Beautiful covers can be misleading sometimes though and I have been burnt several times when I picked up a book that I thought would be good just because of …
