Many Covers Monday - Hunger Games

by - May 14, 2012

Welcome to Many Covers Monday! Today we're looking at the many different covers of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Strap your seat belts on guys, this is going to be a big post. But the covers make it totally worth it, I promise!

The UK cover on the left has been released recently, to coincide with the movie release. I quite like the 'clean' look of this cover. I have no thoughts about the US cover... erm... it's pretty? xD

I find girls hiding behind leaves far too overdone (Uglies, Pandemonium), same as the German cover, left. The Italian cover, right, really pulls it off though, this cover is terrifying!

The Dutch cover lady on the left looks very familar to me but I just can't place her. I have no idea what is going on with the Arabic cover on the right, other than utter madness.

On the left is the Swedish cover with an interesting Rubiks cube effect (sort of) for the title. Right is the Chinese cover and I LOVE it. The big logo, the trees, the two people running, I just LOVE it.

The Serbian cover on the right feels like the classic Hunger Games cover to me, what with it having the same font etc. I'm not sure about the Romanian cover on the left, it feels a bit sci-fi!

The Russian cover on the left was one I heard about the other day, with a caption somewhere along the lines of, 'The Hunger Games has never really taken off in Russia. I can't imagine why.' It is a pretty dire cover! The Swedish cover on the right doesn't really inspire the imagination...

These Thai (left) and Georgian (right) covers offer a unique take on The Hunger Games cover and I think I love both!

And finally, Greece (left) decided to stick with the classic Hunger Games look while Japan decided to go all out with it's feisty manga cover!

What do you think to all these? Which is your favourite? Which do you hate? Let me know in the comments!

Next week: The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. Stay tuned!

  1. Wow... Okay, first off, that Russian cover. Oh my god, I feel like I need to go and reread the book to see if I somehow missed the part where Peeta ripped all his clothes off and had passionate sex with Katniss under a tree. Maybe it was in a secret sealed section in the middle and I skipped over it by accident? It's a kinda sweet cover - for a romance novel. :(

    The Georgian archer is very cool, and the Italian cover is... well, terrifying. But I think my favourite of all of these has to be our new UK version, actually! It's so clean and the colours are stronger. Maybe I need to go and buy a new set? I get the feeling that half the designers of these covers have never actually read the book!

  2. Oh wow there are so many! The German cover is great but I agree it looks like the Uglies! The Italian one is creepy and gives off the feel of a zombie book or something.

  3. I never realised there were so many covers o.O I love the Chinese and georgian ones best, though!

  4. I love the chinese cover the best but, I don't think the Italian one really fits with the book

  5. I think the Russian cover is my favorite :D Thanks for sharing!

  6. {if i'm commenting i'm a follower}

    Rather interesting. Thank you for sharing. :)


  7. I love the Japanese manga style cover - manga is my weakness :) Some of them are a little freaky though. The Italian cover makes it look like the person want to eat me...Thank for showing these, I had no idea there were so many takes on this cover :)

  8. I love this post! I know it's a lot more covers than you usually have, but I love seeing all of the different countries takes. I have to admit I like the clean ones though, I think my favorite is probably Greece, but if I had to pick one with a model, I'd go with the Georgian one!

    1. I love seeing covers from different countries too, I think they're fascinating! I try and post as many covers as I can but it usually ends up being six, not sure why!

  9. Holy CRAP!!! I had NO idea there were so many different HG covers!!!

  10. Of these, I choose the Japanese cover. I love the manga art they used.

    I also especially love the gold foil cover as well:

    These covers aren't so bad, either..... <....German HB <....Russian <...Chinese PB
