Many Covers Monday - The Summer I Turned Pretty

by - April 30, 2012

Welcome to Many Covers Monday! Today we're looking at the many different covers of Jenny Han's The Summer I Turned Pretty.

Some summers are just destined to be pretty.

Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer -- they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

On the left is the US one. I like it's summery feel but I find the light covering up the guy's face a bit annoying. The right one is just... DAISIES. DAISIES EVERYWHERE.

While I love the French cover (left), I feel that the German cover (right) looks a bit dated and probably wouldn't pick it. The French cover has a nice beach feel to it and I love the shells! The background strongly reminds me of Carrie Ryan's The Forest of Hands of Teeth. I think they would look good together!

The Indonesian cover (right) definitely has the summery feel going on but those headphones combined with that hat makes everything feel a bit nineties! The Dutch cover is something I think I would pick up, despite it saying, 'Oh look, here's my back.'

Which cover do you love? Which do you hate? Share your thoughts below!

  1. I rarely say this, but the American cover blows all the other covers for this book out of the water. I absolutely ADORE IT.

  2. My favourite is the French one as I love the shells! I liked the Indonesian one until I noticed the hat... What's with the hat it is suppose to be a book about Summer! Great feature I really enjoyed it :)

  3. Thanks for the rave about my image with the shells!
    I live in France but was born in Sheffield, also in Yorkshire! :-)

    1. You're welcome! Yep. Sheffield isn't too far from here! The shells are gorgeous, if I spoke French I would buy it!

  4. I like the US cover best. I also like the Indonesian cover.
