French Friday (17)




French Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Charlotte at the Book on the Hill. We both live in France, so French Friday is a meme to write about Frenchy bookish things.

I don't normally like to post twice in one day, as I know that too many entries can be overwhelming. But I had a blog tour review to post today, and it's Friday, and I couldn't skip French Friday. So I'm going to try to keep it super short this week.

Let's look at the cover Airhead, by Meg Cabot. In French, the title is Blonde, which I guess makes sense, as that is probably the best way for the French to understand the term Airhead.



I also think it's interesting that they're practically the same cover, just the French one is zoomed in more. Which makes it seem less sleek to me, as does the title blonde. I really like the effect of the Runaway in the US cover, and I don't think the color of the font in the French cover does anything for the girl's skin. Anyhow, I just thought it was interesting how I get such a different feel from both of these covers when they're practically the same.

Okay, that's it for this week. Sorry if it was uninteresting. I wnated it to be short, and now I've run out of time (I just realized I was supposed to leave half an hour ago to meet someone. Oops!). Hopefully next week will be more fun!

In the meantime, don't forget to check out Charlotte's French Friday at The Book on the Hill.

I do prefer the US one, but they both beat out the UK one by miles.

US, hands down. I agree with everything you say about it all !
