Cover Love!

A new edition of Cover Love!

Let's start with The Maze Runner by James Dashner:

(US, UK, Greek)

(German, Portuguese)

From all the above the US and the Greek are my favorites. I like that the Greek cover shows the stormy sky. I don't like the German cover so much because it doesn't show the maze.
Next: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

(US, UK, German hardcover and paperback)

(Portuguese, Finnish, French)
My favorite is the UK cover. I love how fierce Katsa looks on it. I also like the German paperback with the glowing flowers and the US. Not sure about the Finnish and French though.
Next: The Luxe by Anna Godbersen

(US/UK, French, Spanish, Italian)
How can you possibily top the US cover? It's gorgeous and that dress? Stunning.
Most countries chose to have the US cover for their books, maybe the French, Spanish and Italian pubs should have done the same.
I haven't read The Luxe yet, so I'm not sure what's up with the thorns in the Spanish cover. Maybe one of you can explain it to me in the comments?
So what do you say? Have you any favorites? Are there any books you'd like to see in one of my next cover love posts?

I definitely agree with you on the Luxe cover, although if the US version didn't exist I think the French one has a certain charm.
Also, do you think the US and the Greek versions are the same painting? I think the US is a close up, and the Greek is a flipped wide view. Maybe that's why they both look so good!

I gotta say that it would be pretty hard to beat the US Luxe cover. It's my fav...all those covers are GORGEOUS!!

I think the Graceling covers are pretty cool. I like the one of the girl's back view with the red tattoo.

I agree with you about the Luxe cover...and I love the UK Graceling cover, too (actually, I really like several of the other Graceling covers, but none of them fit the book as well, IMO). And I think the UK Maze Runner cover is my favorite...
