Book Travelling Thursday #6

So I ain't done a BTT post in a long time but I'm going to try my best to get back into it. I probably won't be participating every week simply because I find there are some weeks where I either don't feel up to posting or the topic is something I don't really seem interested in and why post a blog post about something that you're not interested in right?

This weeks topic is to pick a book you would want to read whilst having a lazy day at home or on the beach. For this I deciede to chose a book I have not read yet and the only book I have on an audio book that I aven't listened to yet. This book is 'The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey'. I picked this book simly because if it was a lazy day I would much prefer listening to an audiobook rather than reading one (espcially if I was in bed all day too tired to read).

Original (Kindle Edition)

This edition is actually really pretty. I love the yellow on the cover simply because I don't see many books that are completely yellow or have that much on the cover which make it stand out a hell of a lot more to me.

Favourite Editions (Russian + English)


I don't know what it is about the Russian cover but I actually really like it. I've not read this book so I have no idea if the cover has anything to do with the story but nevertheless it's an appealing cover to me. The English written cover is probably my favourite though simply because of the simplicity of it. I really like simple covers.

Least Favourite (Bulgarian + Chinese)

Both of these covers just downright scare me. The Bulgarian cover (left) makes me feel really weird and just doesn't do anything for me as is the same with the Chinese. They both look cheap and boring and just not appealing at all. 


  1. This book is a pretty good post-apocalyptic book. The Russian cover fits, but I still don't love it...that girl's face is creepy. I much prefer the original edition. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yeah I can definitely see where you're coming from with the girls face being a little creepy haha. I don't know why but I still like the cover. The original is definitely the best though!!
