This was amazing for me since I'm
We initial flew to Paris and stayed there for a few days before taking a 5 hour train ride down to southern France.While we were visiting family in a little beach town in southwest France, we stumbled upon a bookstore that was literally across the street from the beach. (which also caused there to be quite a bit of sand in the bookshop) And I happened to have my camera with me, so when I saw the Young Adult Literature section of the quaint little shop, I whipped out my camera to take pictures of the books to show you guys. I tried to be sort of subtle about it, except I somehow managed to find myself taking pictures of books while crouched on the floor until some random french man (I'm not sure if he worked there or not) asked me what I was doing on the floor. My french is kind of limited so I just told him that I like taking pictures of books and then he mumbled something back that I didn't understand, so I just decided that would be enough picture taking at the bookstore.
Anyway, here are the books! (keep in mind that I was rushing and attempting to be subtle, so the picture quality isn't great)
|Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter!|
The cover is very different from the US one.
What do you guys think of this cover?
|An Abundance of Katherines by John Green.|
I saw this book quite a few times over the
course of my trip! Maybe it's super popular
in France or something. Fun cover!
|So Divergent has the same title (and basically the same cover)|
as Divergent in the US. The one main difference is Tris' face is
above the Dauntless symbol on this one. To me the face seems
like a bit too much for the cover. What do you think?
|Same cover, French title, different font. What do you think|
of this one?
|Full Moon by Rachel Hawthorne. I kind of|
like this cover better than the American one.
|Delirium by Lauren Oliver! Pretty much|
the same paperback cover as the one in the
US, but I was still happy to see this one!
|Gone by Michael Grant. Again, not much|
difference at all.
|Everneath by Brodi Ashton! I actually saw|
some teenage girl buy this one! :)
|So this is all 4 Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books|
combined into one book! (all but the last book in the series
which is pictured above) Its SO big!
|And a front view of the big book beauty. ;)|
|Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransome|
Riggs! This one is called Miss Peregrine et les Enfants
Particuliers. (I prefer this title) ;)
|Yes, The Hunger Games. Same title and pretty much the|
same cover, although I seem to remember Catching Fire &
possibly Mockingjay having non- American titles.
|Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney! I also saw this one|
while I was in France. :)
|It's not Summer without You by Jenny Han! I was super|
excited to see this series at the bookshop!
|We'll Always Have Summer! This title actually translates|
to "The Summer Before Us," which I like a lot. :)
|Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini! Pretty much|
the same book, but in French. :)
|I didn't recognize this book at first because this French cover|
is so much different than the American one. Very pretty!
Do you guys like this cover or the American cover better?
|I really don't know all that much about Christopher Paolini's|
Inheritance series. But here it is!
|Hades by Alexandra Adornetto. I saw some|
people looking intently at this one. :)
|Everlasting by Alyson Noel. This one is actually a bit odd|
because the American cover shows the girl on this cover
along with a boy, but for some reason they cut out the boy
from the cover on this one.
|This is the 3rd book in a french high fantasy series that we|
don't have in the US, but I thought the cover was pretty and very
different from what most high fantasy covers would be in the US.
|Radiance by Alyson Noel. It's a very similar style to the cover|
of Radiance in the US, however, the cover picture is not the
same as the one in the US. Which one do you like better?
|Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen! More Sarah Dessen!|
This title means "Way to the Future," which is pretty
different from the US title.
And here are a few very lovely scenic pictures from the trip as well! :)
|Beach in Southwest France.|
|Beach in Northwest Spain.|
|Town in Northwest Spain.|
|The view from a little valley town in Southwest France.|
|The view from atop a mountain in Spain|
|My sister standing by a ruin on a mountain in Spain.|
|Signs on a Spanish Mountain. SO COOOL!|
I will be out of town AGAIN in a couple days to visit some family in the Northwest US, but if you have any questions or want to get in touch with me, please don't hesitate to shoot me an email! :)
