Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Recent Additions to My TBR

This week’s topic was “ My Ten Most Recent Reads (maybe share a one-sentence review to go with?)” but I review books all the time, so I changed to what I’ve recently added to my TBR.

 

 

 

Survivors: Children’s Lives After the Holocaust by Rebecca Clifford

No one can ever explain why books get retitled and recovered in different countries. This one is very interesting. The diver is facing the opposite direction on the cover and the title has been tweaked for the USA edition. Thank you to A Life In Books for the review that led me to add this one–click on the linked words to read the review.

  1. Changing the orientation of the diver doesn’t seem to make sense. I could maybe think of a reason why the title changed – does research show them for example that readers in one country prefer a shorter title?? Clutching at straws here i know but otherwise it baffles me why that change was made

    1. I never understand titles changes. LIke that Away With the Penguins by Hazel Prior is How the Penguins Saved Veronica here in the USA. Hazel Gaynor’s Bird in the Bamboo Cage is When We Were Young and Brave here in the USA. So odd. Unless the UK publisher owns the rights to the actual title???
