What are some of your favorite foreign editions (YA or otherwise)? Got any you think I might want to add to my board? Let me know!


  1. I've never really gone looking for the international covers. But wow! You found some gorgeous ones. I'm envious that their covers are better than ours. LOL

    I'll have to go exploring through foreign markets now and then just to see the covers.

  2. I think Cinder has some of the best foreign editions I've ever seen. Cool post, Alyssa! This makes me want to track down some of these for my own library😊

  3. I hadn't seen any of these, but wow! Amazing! I love the Polish Ember in the Ashes, especially.

  4. Great topic! I love all of these covers! I especially love
    Russian version of Caraval it looks so pretty!!

  5. These are AWESOME. I feel a little shafted here in the U.S. I didn't even like Caraval all that much, but I might have liked it more if my copy had that cover.
    Great post.
    Happy Friday!

  6. This is a very cool idea for a post, Alyssa! I actually haven't seen most of these covers. I'm loving the Indonesian version of The Wrath & The Dawn etc. Those French versions of Rae Carson's books from your Pinterest board are also beautiful!

  7. I love seeing foreign editions of book! And both the Catalan and Romanian versions of graceling are awesome. I also like the Bulgarian Starflight, the Polish Rebels covers, and Enchanted is nice as well.

    Thanks for sharing!!

  8. Oh my god, I love the Russian versions of The Lunar Chronicles. Like, how can I get these?! (serious question - is there a way? lol)


  9. Ruuuude. I want those russian versions of The Lunar Chronicles. Ahhh. But cannot buy them, I don't think. Hmph. All of these books looks so so gorgeous, though :D I love foreign editions too. <3 Lovely post Alyssa :)

  10. This post is so cool, it brings back memories of other foreign covers we love. We quite like the Chinese and German cover editions of The Hunger Games. The Russian version of the Lunar Chronicles is so pretty - and it's such a nice series too <3
