Cover Wars! [5]

Cover Wars is a weekly meme (I run mine on Wednesday, but it can be any day) where you pick your current read - or any other fun book - and try and find as many different cover editions as you can!

This week I'm going to do... The Lightning Thief! EPIC!

American cover (also Canadian, French, Spanish & Portuguese cover)

UK covers - Oldest & Newest

German cover

Dutch cover

Indonesian cover (sorry, it's really small!)

Wow, that's alot! And there are probably a few I missed, too. Who wins this week

I had some issues with the Mr. Linky from last week, so if you want to participate in Cover Wars, just drop your link and I'll check it out! :)

I like the American cover the most because green is my favourite colour! =P I will admit, though, that the monochromatic palette doesn't do justice to a story as amazingly colourful as The Lightning Thief.

My second choice is the Dutch cover: I love the sense of limitless possibility in the sky and the sense that the adventure is just beginning from Percy's narrow perch. =)

Oh, why am I not surprised? :D

Hmmm.... I'd say it's a tie between the Indonesian cover and Dutch cover.

I really like all of the covers except for the older UK one. Glad they changed it! If I had to pick a winner I would go with the U.S. or Dutch covers. I hated the original U.S. cover of the book so I'm glad they updated that one too.
