Hi guys !
I answer so much tags around here that I figured I should start creating some of my own, so here we go. This tag is very simple and you don’t necessarily have to do it with French covers (I would love to see other country’s takes on some of those books). At first, I wanted to call this one the Ugly french covers book tag because let’s face it, French covers are usually not this good. But I also wanted to show you the pretty covers you can find around here. We have some gems, so here we go for the French covers book tag #1 !
Rules of the tag: for each prompt, you can answer more than one book. Share the original and translated book cover, they have to be different. It does not have to be a book you’ve read yet. And please remember that everyone has different taste, it is not because I find one cover ugly that you can’t like it.
French put people on the cover
I am usually not a big fan of people on the cover, even less if the people are looking directly at us. I don’t know, it is something that makes me very uncomfortable somehow. There are covers for which it works, others for which it does not. I am not going to give my opinion on every covers I put over here, but let’s say I am not a huge fan of French covers in general, even if there are exceptions.
Flowers on the cover
The Traitor’s kiss by Erin Beaty. I don’t know if I prefer the French version or the original, but I have to admit both are pretty amazing. I love the colours the French publisher used on their version. The French title means The colour of the lie which I think sounds pretty cool.
Stars on the cover
Make it blue
French publishers like to change covers colours. Usually, it is to make it black, but I wanted a little bit of colour in my article, so here we go ! I like blue and can understand a lot of the choices down below, but I am still so so so so mad about Solitaire. I mean??? Why? Why the snow flake? Why this font? Why everything?
The French cover is better
Some times, it happens. French can apparently fix some covers, and make them better somehow, here are a few examples.
Make it purple

Biggest change of style
Is this a problem for you, French?
This one I hesitated before putting it, but I think it is important we talk about that. Some French publishers have something against diversity. It is a harsh way to put it, but it is also very true. Otherwise, how can you explain those?
I am definitely going to make more of those articles because there are a lot of other French covers I would love to show you! I might do other colours next time, other themes and other fun stuff about our covers. What do you think of those ones? I think we are not this bad, most of them are pretty good, even if some are very ugly to my taste. Which one is your favourite?
