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?
