French Friday is a meme hosted by Charlotte over at The Book On the Hill
Since, for the time being, I'm living in France, I thought I would try to participate.
A while ago, Lenore at Presenting Lenore posted some German covers of YA books. I thought this was a great idea and wanted to do the same thing for some French book covers. So, I made my way over the fnac and took some pictures, and was all excited about posting them.
And then I never did.
One thing I found interesting was that, well, when it comes to YA, the French are. . .boring when it comes to their YA covers (oops! Don't tell them I said that!). For the most part, they just steal from us Americans.
(sorry about the glare; my camera sucks)
Notice how the only thing different about these two Mortal Instruments books is the titles.
Occasionally, they do change the covers.
(did I mention my camera sucks?)
But when they do, it's like they've forgotten creativity exists. Maybe it's just me, but I find the original Blue Blood covers infinitely more interesting. I guess maybe, just MAYBE, I could say that I rather like the cover for "the Vampires of Manhattan."
I guess I shouldn't be judging, though - I haven't actually read the books yet. Maybe the French ones fit better what is going on.
That's all for now, folks! I'll try to think of something more interesting for next Friday. :-)
