Jasprit and I are back with another Cover Fever. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta is one of my all-time favorite books and I know Jasprit loved it as well. There are several different covers, but I only picked four to display. Down below Jasprit and I will pick our favorites but let us know in the comments which you prefer!
US Hardcover AU paperback
Swedish edition Norwegian edition
Since I read this book, I've known it for its vibrant coloured US hardcover, it stands out and I love having it on my shelves. The three other covers give off a more somber tone and I know the book does have aspects of that, but its not what I remember this book for, so that's one of the reasons that I prefer the US edition. Also the Norwegian and Swedish covers tend to come across as a bit dull and boring.
Jasprit's Verdict: The US cover for sure!
I have a copy of the US Hardcover on my shelf and I've always loved the look with the vibrant orange poppy that ties right into the story. I've never really liked the AU Paperback cover but it does tie in with the story the best. Maybe it's the coloring. I wish it wasn't so yellow. I do like the Swedish cover, the tree looks a little sparse to be the one from the story, though. The Norwegian cover is just okay to me.
Rachel's Final Verdict:
The US Hardcover.
Which of these covers would you like to have on your shelves?
