Current Read #7
For this week's Friday Face-Off, I've chosen to feature a book that I just finished yesterday, Island of the Lost by Joan Druett! I love reading about real life survival stories and was excited to finally read this one... and unfortunately it ended up being one of my least favorite of all the ones I've read. 🤣 But that's okay! Let's still take a look at all of the different cover editions that exist for it.
2007 US Hardcover | 2016 Audiobook
2019 US Paperback | 2007 UK
I love the classic feel of the original US hardcover edition, though I also like the dark and slightly more ominous feeling that the 2019 paperback evokes. The original one reminds me of the title scene of some older documentary or movie–does anyone else get that vibe or just me??
