This week’s selection is The Warded Man (also called The Painted Man) by Peter V. Brett, part one in a fantasy series and first published in 2008.
Brett’s series features some cool international covers. Check out the ones for the US, Germany, Portugal, and Estonia below.
Which one is your favorite? I love the German design, but I can’t get over how awesome Portugal’s is!
This week’s featured cover is Perchance to Dream by Lisa Mantchev, the second book in her Theatre Illuminata series.
It’s a teen book for ages 12 and up that tells a story of “romance, magic, adventure, and fairies.”
I love illustrated covers, how about you?
It’s time for one of my favorites: The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
This Friday’s pick is The House That Stood Still, a science fiction book published in 1960 and written by American author A. E. van Vogt.
Vintage covers are the best. What do you think?
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite stories: Le Petit Prince, or The Little Prince, by Antoine De Saint-Exupery. My amazing boyfriend introduced me to this book, and I’ll always cherish it for that reason. Plus, it’s a great read! That helps, too.
You can find the French version (with almost the same cover pictured below) or the English version on Amazon or Barnes & Noble (where it’s also available in both languages).
De Saint-Exupéry first published the book in 1943, only one year before he and his Lockheed P-38 aircraft disappeared over the Mediterranean. He’s been nicknamed the “Winged Poet” and also wrote Wind, Sand and Stars, Night Flight, Southern Mail, and Airman’s Odyssey.
This cover looks so wonderfully childlike in its design. What do you think?
