This week's topic is:
Unknown Magical Abilities
There are a number of books out there about characters who discover magical things about themselves, and I've decided to feature Jessica Townsend's delightful middle grade novel Nevermore: The Trials of Morrigan Crow for this week's topic! This is such a fun series and I was excited to see all the different cover editions that exist for it–and I wasn't disappointed! Take a look at some of the imaginative and colorful International covers for this one:
2017 US Hardcover | 2018 UK Paperback | 2018 Finnish
2018 German | 2018 Danish | 2018 Ukrainian
2019 Vietnamese | 2017 Serbian | 2019 Thai
I honestly don't know which one is my favorite! I love that they included a huge illustration of the Magnificat on the Vietnamese edition, and I also find the Danish illustration really fun. I think the Thai edition really captures how Morrigan felt trying to get used to her new situation, haha, and the original US and UK editions are also really fun!
What cover(s) do you like the most?
