World Wide Covers! #1 (My new meme)

Hello beautiful people!
For a long time I've been thinking about creating a new meme for Librarian Mouse and I finally finished it... Welcome to World Wide Covers!

What is this about? Well, most book lovers also enjoy pretty covers, right? Pretty covers help the selling of certain books improving the attention they may get. And we like to stare at them for as long as we can.
But what about the covers of other countries? What about the marvelous covers some publishers release for the books? We never get to see them unless we go looking for them.

This is were World Wide Covers! steps in. Maybe I will post a comparison or maybe I will show you a certain cover for a graphic novel. Some news you may find interesting.
From where? Everywhere! Japan, Korea, India, Brasil, Spain, Italy, Germany, etc, etc.

Can you participate? Of course, the more the merrier, right? So here are the rules:
- Create a post using the meme button sharing some love for the covers we don't usually find.
- Credit my blog, Librarian Mouse, by mention it or linking back here.
- Have fun!
There is nor a special day to post this meme since you may find pretty covers any day but I will try to stick to Thursdays as long as I can.

The first World Wide Covers! post is about the Japanase cover for first Iron Fey book, The Iron King.

Iron King US cover

So far looks like the book, in Japan, is separated in two parts, hence both covers.

One-way ticket to the Labyrinth under Fairy Princess Dreams

by Julie Kagawa
Release date: 15th July, 2012
Publisher: Harlequin Japan

Summary from Goodreads:
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny; one she could never have imagined.

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth - that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face; and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

And now... Opinions! Oh. My. Goodness!!! I mean... if you like manga or anime then I'm CERTAIN you LOVE these covers, right?! They are simply amazing!!! Meghan, Ash, Puck and Grim look exactly how I pictured them... I could stare at them (specially Puck and Ash) for hours.
I wish I could buy these editions right away, even if I don't understand a word of Japanese, hahaha.

Also, thanks to Julie's post about the covers I found the FB Page of the illustator which you can visit and Like HERE.
And if by any chance you wish to have one of these covers as your desktop then click HERE.

There are no news about a graphic novel or anime adaptation yet but who knows... Dreaming is free, right?

Would you buy them? free polls 


  1. Oh yeah, I saw Julie tweet about these covers! I think they're absolutely brilliant, and very marketable toward teenage girls in Japan. :)

    This WOULD probably be a really good book to adapt into a manga. There's lots of action and sexy times. ;)

  2. These covers are so cute! I love having a picture of Grim! Great meme! :D


  3. @Isabelle: Thanks! I'm glad you liked the meme :]
    I'm sure in Japan this will be a major hit! And if by any chance they begin a manga or an anime I would die of happiness!!!

  4. @kimscrecrow: I know, they are lovely!!! *staring at them again*
    Glad you like the meme :D

  5. I adore this meme! Book covers are gorgeous <3
