Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
I am a cover addict.
I never try to judge a book by its cover. It doesn’t stop me from loving some awesome covers, and I have a whole file on my computer for beautiful covers.
There are some covers that desperately are in need of Extreme Makeover: Book Edition. Never judge a book by its cover, but judge a cover by its cover.
There is your zen for the day, and here our top ten picks for covers in desperate need of a fairy godmother.
Author: Gennifer Albin
Kara’s Notes: I hate what they’ve done with the redesign. I much prefer the psychedelic colors of the old one. This looks like every other dystopian cover out there.
Book/Series: The Diviners/sequel (redesign)
Author: Libba Bray
Kara’s Notes: I HATE what the publishers have done. This is not the series in my mind at all. The cover with the eye was MUCH better.
Book/Series: Tin Star
Author: Cecil Castelluci
Kara’s Notes: Really underwhelming online and even more underwhelming in person–I have an ARC of this.
Book/Series: After Eden
Author: Helen Douglas
Kara’s Notes: Those neon clashing colors are just FUGLY.
Book/Series: The Holders
Author: Julianna Scott
Kara’s Notes: I’m not sure what the contents of the book are, but I would bet they are not as dull as that cover!
Book/Series: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Lyn’s Notes: I love the series, but the cover always looked so dull and dry.
Book/Series: If You Find Me
Author: Emily Murdock
Lyn’s Notes: Once again, loved the book, but I just cannot get into that cover.
Book/Series: The Lost Sun
Author: Terry Gratton
Lyn’s Notes: The cover just looks silly, and even though I am dying to read this one, I just cannot stand that horrible cover.
Author: Susan Ee
Lyn’s Notes: The cover looks so cheap. Love the book, but despise the styled cover.
Book/Series: Throne of Glass
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Lyn’s Notes: Boring and weak. Seriously, what the heck??
