This week's topic is:
'Star' in the title
There are a lot of great books to choose from that have 'star' in the title, but when I saw how many beautiful editions there were of Kiran Millwood Hargrave's The Girl of Ink & Stars, I knew it would be the perfect pick for this week's Friday Face-Off. This is a beautiful middle grade novel that, admittedly, I didn't love as much as I expected to, but I still really enjoyed it and thought it had some really interesting ideas and setting.
2016 US Paperback | 2017 Romanian | 2017 Vietnamese
2016 Kindle | 2019 Lithuanian | 2019 Indonesian
2018 Persian | 2016 Spanish | 2016 Portuguese
I'm not sure if I can pick one, these are all beautiful! I think it's interesting that they changed the title on the Kindle on to The Cartographer's Daughter, but I do also like that title and cover. I love the Persian and US Paperback covers, and I also really like the unique style of the Lithuanian one as well.
What cover(s) do you like the most?
