Bookish Romanian Love

Hey guys! ♥
 
I've been a little mean and I've been complaining a lot about the situation of the bookstores in Romania. So I figured it's time to make them some justice, because there are a lot of great books released here too. So I'd like to show you some of them.
 
My first obvious choice would be The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer, because I think that's the first fantasy series (or one of the first series, anyway) that was published in Romania. But there's not much to say, except the publishers kept the original covers and did a wonderful job in promoting the books and pleasing the readers. (they hosted a lot of events, giveaways and things like that). The books were published by Rao Books, which is one of my favorites Romanian publishing houses. They always have very beautiful covers - mostly hardcovers - and they do a great job in promoting the books and keeping our interest. 
(HERE's a nice Romanian blog that keeps us up to date with the Twilight books and movies.)
 
And speaking of books that turned into movies, today I want to talk about Beastly by Alex Flinn, since it came out recently. I haven't seen the movie yet - I think I'm going to wait for all the Alex Pettyfer madness to cool off first. LOL But I read the book a few years ago (at the time, I didn't know it was supposed to be a movie and it would be released here), but the new Romanian edition would be nice for my bookshelf. :)
 
Bestia
Author: Alex Finn

Hardcover, published 9. 7. 2010 by RAO Books

There are not a lot of differences between the covers - as I said, they like to keep the original covers of the books - but what do you guys think?:)

  7. Wow sooo pretty!! I really like the second romania one also. The peach-pink flower is doo beautiful! Have you seen the "movie tie in" cover? I think i like these better than the actors on the cover.

  8. @SweetSwan Yup, I've seen the movie tie in cover, it's very pretty. I still prefer the original covers though. Thanks for the reminder, I'll post the movie covers too from now on!;)
