This week's topic is:
Off the TBR

Since there are many, many books on my imaginary TBR, I tried to pick something that's been really enticing me lately and that I hope to get to soon, and of the many books that describes, I've decided to feature The Last Wild Horses by The Last Wild Horses by Maja Lunde. As I went to find different editions for this book, I realized that this book is considered #3 in a series and I'm not completely unsure if it's a standalone sort of series or if I'm going to be completely lost, so I'll need to do some research (if you know, let me know!)... but for now I still want to read it, so let's check out some covers!

My choice(s):
I really like a lot of these covers! The US cover is really beautiful, and I also really like the French and Slovak editions. These are all pretty well-designed covers and only make me want to read this book more. 

What cover(s) do you like the most?


  1. I've never heard of this! I love the US and Czech covers the best. I hope you read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts😁

  2. I really like the French and Finnish editions!
