8/18/2016: Because we don’t always read fiction,
choose your favorite non-fiction book.
This week’s topic wasn’t that hard of a choice. I remember when I first
heard about this book, I HAD to have it! It just sounded like a story I couldn’t
miss out on. The book I am talking about is Tiger Tiger by Margaux Fragoso. Boy
was I amazed after reading it. It is such a sad story, but one that needed to be told
and shared with the world. So if you haven’t already, please do yourself a favor,
and pick up a copy. You won’t regret it! I must warn you that it does deal
with some really serious stuff, but it is still well worth the read!
1.) US 2.) Norwegian 3.) German 4.) Latvian
5.) Norwegian 6.) French 7.) Polish.
This week it is hard to pick just one favorite! There are so many good ones! Hmm…
Let’s see…I guess I will have to go with the French cover…No…The Polish Cover…
No…Whatever, it’s a tie. I just like both of them a lot. I like the harsh contrast on
the French cover, and I just love how everything is layed out on the Polish one.
I would be happy to have either one of them on my shelf…Or BOTH! 😉
1.) Danish 2.) Turkish 3.) Swedish 4.) Hungarian
5.) Czech 6.) Portuguese 7.) UK.
This week’s least favorite book cover award goes to…THE HUNGARIAN COVER!!
I don’t even know what’s going on with it. What does that chair even have to do
with the story? Am I Missing Something?
That’s it for this week. What do you think of this week’s book?
Have you read it? Let me know your thoughts, down in the comments! 😀

This sounds really interesting! I always hate saying that about books that deal with these kinds of topics but, haha. I just added it to my TBR!
I haven’t heard of this book, but I really do like US and French covers. ☺
Hahah, the Hungarian cover is not that bad as a cover, but maybe it’s not for this story.
I have never hear dof this book but I really love the original cover. It’s eye catching and makes me want to ick it up and buy it. Great picks 🙂
I have this book (the US cover) on my shelf, but I haven’t read it yet. I’ll have to read it soon now. The Hungarian cover is awful. Thanks for sharing!
I love the US and Norwegian covers! I didn’t know this book but now I’ve added it to my TBR. It will be tough to read, but I think hearing this story is very important. Thank you for introducing me to it!
Unlike in other books, the beauty shot covers for this title works great! It looks so intriguing, especially the title. 😀 Thank you for this, and I must say, I am now itching to find a copy and immerse myself in its depressing tragic story.
That’s a stunning cover! The pink cover is cool too. Such a deep book; I’ll have to check it out!
Yet again I’m surprised on how far the Polish translations go from original… Since when Tiger tiger means the same as Game of love (more or less). Yes, it might be related, but come on!
Anyway, I like the original cover, but the French one looks so good.
Hahaha I would have never known that! I wonder why they don’t just do that exact translations…That a little weird
