Welcome to Comparing Covers where I showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions, re-releases, and international releases.
I’m back baby! I miss my little feature and I hope you did too! After a blogging slump, I’ve rebooted and am ready to go again.
Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella is not out yet, but I did have the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of it. (P.S. I loved it!) Anywho, curious being that I am, I wanted to see if this book already had multiple covers and sure enough, it did! Yay!
Yes! To get you in the feel of the book here is the blurb:
After being together for ten years, Sylvie and Dan have all the trimmings of a happy life and marriage; they have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, beautiful twin girls, and communicate so seamlessly, they finish each other’s sentences. However, a trip to the doctor projects they will live another 68 years together and panic sets in. They never expected “until death do us part” to mean seven decades.
In the name of marriage survival, they quickly concoct a plan to keep their relationship fresh and exciting: they will create little surprises for each other so that their (extended) years together will never become boring. But in their pursuit to execute Project Surprises, mishaps arise and secrets are uncovered that start to threaten the very foundation of their unshakable bond. When a scandal from the past is revealed that question some important untold truths, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other after all.
With a colorful, eccentric cast of characters, razor-sharp observations, and her signature wit and charm, Sophie Kinsella crafts a humorous, yet thoughtful portrait of a marriage and shines a light on the danger of not looking past the many layers of the ones you love to discover how infinitely fascinating–and surprising–they truly are.
After studying the various covers, my favorite will have to be US edition. Just because of the different font and the more generic present that’s represented. Even though the runner up for me, the German edition is gorgeous, the flowers are not really representative to the story. The present actually is closer to the way the book is and the actual surprises that the characters get.
