Here at OBS we are featuring Alice Sebold’s ‘The Lovely Bones’ for this months book club. So whats more appropriate for this months Book Covers Around The World.

“These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence: the connections — sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent — that happened after I was gone. And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it. The events my death brought were merely the bones of a body that would become whole at some unpredictable time in the future. The price of what I came to see as this miraculous lifeless body had been my life” via wikipedia

United States and Canada

Both of these covers are really great! The on on the right is the original first edition and the other on the left is the newest edition based of the motion picture. I have them both listed here as the US and Canadian covers, but you can find both of these in many other countries and lots of different languages.

Dutch (Translation: ‘Full Sky’)

I really like this cover. I love how its half color, half sepia tone. And they show ‘Susie’ in the field, but also in the corner they have the sky and clouds.
