For how much I hated this book, I am surprised that I actually like a lot of the covers.

  1. Feeling like you want to scream absolutely counts~! imo lol It was so hard to find a book like that! I think my favourite is either the Penguin 2016 with the boy screaming OR Penguin 1987. I actually like an entire row because like you said there are many good covers here 🙂 The Last Row!

    1. This week was a super hard topic haha I like the art work on the 1987 one but I’m just not a huge fan of the pig’s head, though its a pretty pig part of the book. So there were so many editions of Lord of the Flies that I took all the editions from the first page and then randomly picked some other covers that I liked 😂 That is why the last row has so many good ones 😂 😂

  2. Huge congratulations on your choice – I think you’ve nailed this one:)). And WHAT a lot of covers to choose from. I really like the Faber and Faber 2012 cover as I think the design is just so flipping clever – but I also love the Perigree 2003 cover – that boy looks as though butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth…

    1. Haha Thanks! And I didn’t even scratch the surface on the total amount of covers that exist!! The Perigree cover is the one I read in school. I have never heard that saying before? What does it even mean Butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth?

  3. Wow, some really good covers – I like all three of your favourites but on balance would probably have gone for the same one you went for – and it fits with your orange cover themes too,
    Lynn 😀
