Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is: FREEBIE
I haven’t done a Top Ten in a while, but I have been wanting to do something about pretty THG editions for awhile so, why not? And don’t you worry, I am totally going to add a few “so much nope” editions that (even though I still must own them, let’s be real) are simply fugly.
The titles of the editions link to The Hunger Games on Goodreads, and I included ISBNs when I could find them in case you want to find/buy any of these 😀
(US, 2008, Hardcover/Paperback)
Owned by Shannon: Of course!
Reason: They’re the original, you have to love the ones that started the whole thing, right?
(Australian, 2015, Paperback)
Owned by Shannon: Yep!
Reason: They. Are. Camouflage.
(Thai, 2011, Paperback; 2012 Paperback)
ISBN: 9786117061141; 9786162440564
Owned by Shannon: Nope. And I have no idea how to find them.
Reason: Is not the coolest? Someone help me find this!!
(Australian, 2013, Paperback-ish?)
Owned by Shannon: You betcha.
Reason: Pictures do not do them justice, okay. They are so. Freaking. Gorgeous. Luxury is not a misnomer!
(German, Hardcover, 2009)
Owned by Shannon: No, sadness.
Reason: It looks a little bit like the old Delirium covers, but I like them. Idk why there are leaves, but I also don’t care. Pretty leaves are pretty.
(UK, Paperback, 2014)
Owned by Shannon: Yep.
Reason: These are neon. You need no additional reason.
(Chinese, Paperback, 2009)
Owned by Shannon: Sadly, no.
Reason: Catching Fire, let’s be real. I needs. Also, they released newer covers since these in China, and they are so much yuck, so we should always just look at these forever and ever.
(UK, Paperback, 2015)
Owned by Shannon: Yups
Reason: They’re much better than the US foilies.
(Japanese, Hardcover, 2009)
Owned by Shannon: Negative
Reason: I bet Val and Amber will love it.
BONUS: ARCs. Because of course they’d be favorites, no?
NOW, onto the
uglies unfortunate ones!
Her face. Doesn’t. Change. Way to be lazy, Romania.
Oh looksie, same face again! They at least had the wherewithal to tint it? Blue? As you do? It looks like Katniss has hypothermia, not revolutionary status.
These look like they are legit from 3 different series.
Book One: Katniss at “da club”. I bet there’s a boy involved.
Book Two: Katniss is haunted by ghosts and/or is solving a murder.
Book 3: Katniss has the sads, and is sitting in a corner watching life pass her by.
Russia, this is why we can’t have nice things. At any point while you were perhaps glancing over the contents of this book, was Katniss ever wearing PEASANT BLOUSES and damsel-ing all over the place? No? Also, who is the creepy dude in the background of MJ supposed to be!?
Then Russia tried again!
I mean, they’re better. The third one is kind of cool. I don’t have a fucking clue what is happening in the second one, but girl, I’d be sad too if I was wearing dirty ass wings in what appears to be a cave while (again) some dude gives me the creepy eyes.
