Popular books tend to have a multitude of different book covers not only in various languages but also for the English versions alone. The Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver is no exception. I know of five different English book covers for Delirium! Either way, I thought I’d take a look at this series since I intend to read it soon (it’s true, I haven’t read it yet).
Oh the contrast between the German and the English covers! Written by Kerstin Gier, this book was originally published in German under the title Silber: Das erste Buch der Träume (Literally translated, Silver: The first book of dreams). It will be published in English as Dream a Little Dream on 6. January 2015.
The book I decided to look at for the first round of Book Cover Culture is The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Café by Mary Simses. I hadn’t actually heard of this book before but the German cover caught my eye when I was looking for ebooks on Onleihe (the German equivalent of Overdrive). Der Sommer der Blaubeeren literally translates as The Summer of the Blueberries.
