I had a friend recommend Austenland by Shannon Hale to me a while back. She knew I loved Jane Austen books and bless her little heart wanted me to read more contemporary romance. So, I gave it a shot and stayed up super late the night I started it. It’s such a light fun read. Perfect for a day on the beach or as a pick-me-up when you’re feeling down.
Original Cover + Cover From My Country:
I liked this cover because it’s simplistic. The light teal cover is a favourite of mine and while there is a person on the cover, we don’t see their face. The woman is gazing at the English home preparing for her upcoming adventure.
Besides the original cover, I like the US paperback cover as well. It matches with the book’s theme and story quite well. The only thing I would change would be the colour, it needs more colour to stand out.
Least Favourite Covers:
- I do not like movie tie-in covers. And the image chosen by the US publishers could have been better. The pictures of the actors have just been photoshopped together in front an English-style mansion. No thank you!
- I don’t get the pink silhouette on this Czech cover. It looks strange to me and would not entice me to read the book.
