It’s time for Book Traveling Thursdays! This meme is created by the wonderful bloggers from Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much. If you want to participate in this meme, you just have to go to the Goodreads group where the weekly themes will be announced at the beginning of each month. I will link the group here. After that, you have to just select a book according to the theme and explain why you chose this book in a blog post. In that post, you also have to choose different covers of the book you select. To be more specific, you have to post the original cover, the covers from you country, your favourite cover, and lastly, your least favourite cover. So, here goes!
This week’s theme is to choose a book that made me cry. Well there’s a big list to choose from. I will go with the first name that came to my mind and it is To Kill a mocking bird by Harper Lee. It is one of the most amazing books I have ever read. Every time I reread this book, I discover something new about it. By now I’ve memorized almost every scene and I still can’t shake off the feeling that I still have to learn a lot from it. To Kill A Mockingbird is one of those rare books that doesn’t give in to the belief that “deep down, everybody’s actually good.” There is sadness and happiness, racism and equality, immaturity and maturity, injustice and redemption. Scout was adorable. She and Jem gave me sibling goals. And what can I say about Atticus (please adopt me please)? I feel that this is one of the most brilliant books ever written in the history of English Literature.
Original cover and also my most favorite cover:
I really really really like this cover. The first edition came out in 1962. This is my most favorite cover, as well.
Cover from my country(India):
I feel that this cover throws a subtle hint about the dominant theme of racism. Anyway, this cover is indeed an work of art.
Least favorite cover:
Well, this book is not only about the relationship between Atticus and his children but also it announces the arrival of a new dawn. It is a harbinger of revolution. Don’t restrict this book to just another family drama. This is all I have to say about this cover. These are my personal views. I am really sorry if I offend you in any way.
I hope you like this post. Please feel free to share your views with me in the comments section. Until next time then!
