Battle of the Book Covers #2

 
In Battle of the Book Covers, I pick one book, compile a bunch of different international covers, and choose my favorite - and I'd love for you to weigh in, too!  (Thank you to Heather at Random Redheaded Ramblings, who put together a list of 25 book blog post ideas, for the inspiration!)

This time I'm looking at Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton.  I finally read this book in 2020 and I absolutely loved it!  I think the original 2018 US paperback cover is very well-known, but can anything beat it?


2018 US // 2019 German // 2019 Croatian


2018 Bulgarian // 2019 Serbian // 2019 French



2019 Hungarian // 2020 Swedish // 2020 Macedonian

I think we all know I'm a sucker for a pretty dress on a cover, so a lot of these appeal to me; I also love the incorporation of architecture, beaches, and classic cars.  While I like the simplicity of the French cover, I think my favorite is...


The 2020 Swedish version!  I think it has a similar vibe as the original cover, but the realistic/photographic quality appeals to me just a little bit more!

Which one is your favorite?

  3. I still have a copy of this that I need to read! I didn't really just how many cover options there were, and they are all so different! I really like the one you chose, as well as the Macedonian one. And for some reason I do enjoy the US original one, which surprises me because it's not really a style I'd usually be drawn to!

    1. I couldn't believe how many versions there were, too; the options just kept going and going on Goodreads! They are all so pretty; the original US one is the one that drew me in.

  4. Honestly, I like them all. Kind of like the German with all three women on the cover.

  6. I finally read this one last year too. Such a great book! I agree with Sam that all of these are gorgeous in their own way. The 2018 US paperback is my sentimental favorite since it's the one I own but they're all lovely. I love the red dresses and the vintage cars.

    1. It's such a well-known cover, especially because Reese Witherspoon picked it for her book club - so lovely!

  14. I think I'm a sucker for the original one. The German was is drawing me in too. It looks like it was published in Cuba. I just wish the background wasn't so white though.
