This week's topic is:
Currently Reading–Author Edition

Since none of the four books I"m currently reading seem to have more than one edition of the cover out there so far, I decided to get a little creative and see if any of the authors of the books I'm reading have other books with more cover editions (and they do!). I'm currently reading M.R. Carey's Infinity Gate, so I figured I'd share some covers for another book from M.R. Carey that I really enjoyed, The Book of Koli! This one has some great covers to compare, so let's take a look.

2020 US Paperback | 2020 French 

2021 Bulgarian | 2021 German

My choice(s):
These covers are all so cool! I'm partial to the US edition, but I also think the French, Bulgarian, and German editions are all incredible as well. I'm not sure I could even pick just one for this. I actually think the US and German editions fit the story the best, but I still love the illustration for the Bulgarian edition and love what's going on with the French one. What do you think?


  1. Ooh I'm in love with the French edition! So cool that thos book is getting some great covers😁
