Top Ten Foreign Editions of Books I Want

Today's Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie, and I almost didn't do it, but then I had an idea: foreign editions. I've started wanting multiple editions of books (I have four different versions of Fangirl, for example), and that can include movie covers, cover redesigns, and foreign covers. The only problem--or is it a good thing?--is that I only know what the foreign covers look like for about, oh, ninety-nine percent of the books I've ever heard of. But there's still that one percent of foreign covers that I know exist, and I want them. Here are ten of them.

*These are all UK editions, except for The Lunar Chronicles, which is Spanish, and all can be found and purchased on Book Depository.

Throne of Glass
I WILL get this beautiful set on my shelves year.

The Morganville Vampires
I already own over thirty books by Rachel Caine, so why not fifteen more? (Though I already have Glass Houses. It's so preeetty.)

Oh my gosh, it's gorgeous.

Messenger of Fear
I've seen photos of this cover on an actual book, and it looks so cool.

The Lunar Chronicles
Okay, so I was just going to do the Spanish covers, but then I found so many others and my gosh, the cover gods love Marissa Meyer.

My True Love Gave to Me
It's so pretty and festive!

Rainbow Rowell
I already have all the UK covers of Fangirl, but it's not enough.

The Hunger Games
Look at the spiiineees.

I still need to get all the US hardcovers and the new US paperbacks, but these look pretty cool on an actual book.

Hook's Revenge
This is Hook's Revenge in the US, but look at how adorable it is and I waaant!

What foreign covers do you love?


  1. This is SUCH a great idea for a post! Now you have me wanting to look at which foreign editions I want of my books! I have a feeling I am about to go down a rabbit hole....LOL

  2. Great list idea! I too have a thing for different book editions; while I own all of Agatha Christie's works, I have spent years and loads of cash trying to get them all in one particular edition.

  3. Such pretty covers! I'm a sucker for pretty covers and I always covet the UK ones!

  4. What a unique and interesting TTT! Thanks for sharing all the pretty covers. Makes me want the UK Hunger Games books for the spines!

  5. Oh wow, what a great idea for a top ten list! I do love all the Lunar Chronicles books, you're right, she is one lucky author:-) I also love the bright covers on the Hunger Games! Here's my Top Ten.

  6. Oh, my goodness! Those Marissa Meyer covers are GORGEOUS!! I do love the Morganville covers. Rachel brought some to show me and to raffle off in my store and I admit, it was hard to let them go! Great topic choice! Here's mine

  7. I barely have enough shelf space for the American editions of my books, but I desperately want to own ALL of the Harry Potter editions. I know they only come out with new editions as frequently as they do because they know there are plenty of suckers like me who can't pass them up... but I still want them all. So pretty.
    And I also love the UK edition of My True Love Gave to Me!!

  8. I don't like the new British Hunger Games covers, I prefer the old ones, but I hadn't noticed the spines, those are sort of cool.

  9. The Lunar Chronicles covers are awesome! Since those are some of my favorite books I definitely wouldn't mind having foreign editions of those :-) And My True Love Gave To Me cover is so cute! Love it!

  10. ooo, i like what they did with the lunar chronicles. looking forward to the upcoming Fairest!
    here's my TTT

  11. Nice topic!! Here's my TTT post for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/01/top-ten-tuesday-authors-id-like-to-meet.html

  12. I love this topic! I may have to share mine on my blog sometime. I would have My True Love Gave to Me and Fangirl on my list for sure. :D

  13. I kind of want to be a book cover designer so I love looking at all the different covers.

  14. OMG, I LOVE your topic. HOW COOL! I am always so jealous of the foreign covers!!! I am soooooo tempted to go to BookDepository and buy the UK version of TRUE LOVE! I just did for Kate Forsyth's BITTER GREENS, actually! OMG, and that HOOK cover!!! I really love Rae Carson's and Kristin Cashore's and Maria Snyder's foreign covers!

  15. Ooh, I love that cover for Fiendish! I prefer it over the US cover. The UK editions for Throne of Glass are so PRETTY. I like the covers of those a little more than the US ones. And the Lunar Chronicles!! I kinda wish I could read Spanish well enough to read a book in it.

  16. I love all the Lunar Chronicles covers!!! So gorgeous! The Hook's Revenge one is really great too. I love foreign book covers, I collect Harry Potter books actually :) And I've bought a few UK covers of other books before. Love your TTT, such a cool list!

  17. Hook's Daughter's cover is amazing. I love it. I also really like the cover for Landline and Fangirl and all of the Lunar Chronicle books. Great topic!

  18. That gray cover of Fangirl is from a publisher in my country, Indonesia.

  19. I still liked this article, good, good content, and unique design.Thank you for sharing the article
