Battle of the Book Covers #5

 
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!)
 
For this edition, I'm going back to 2010 with The Distant Hours by Kate Morton, one of my favorite books! 


2010 United States // 2013 Serbian // 2011 Norwegian


2013 Bulgarian // 2013 French // 2011 Dutch


2012 Portugese // 2011 Italian // 2010 German


2013 Romanian // 2012 Spanish
 
This one is really hard, because there are so many to choose from - I wasn't expecting that!  I think I'll go with...

 
 The 2011 Norwegian cover!  Although I like the ones that show some version of the castle, I feel like the open gate is calling to me, telling me that there's some sort of secret or mystery behind it!


Which one is your favorite?

  5. These are all really lovely but my favorites are the one you picked and then also the 2011 Dutch. I really like the lighting on that one.

  7. I agree about the Norwegian one, it's so inviting! Though it's a close call with the Dutch one for me :)

  8. The Norwegian cover is beautiful! Surprisingly, I actually really like the US one as well, I think it's the blues and general color vibe it has going on coupled with the beautiful scenery. These are all pretty good ones!

  9. I like the open gates as well. Although I'm also fond of the German and US covers. I'd say my faves are the US and that Norwegian one...

    1. I love the US one because that's the one I have, but there was just something about the Norwegian one!

  10. This one is tough. I think I'd go with the French one. It feels like Downton Abbey on a cover. I also like the Serbian and Dutch (great lighting) one.
