Top Ten Covers I Wish I Could Redesign

1.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I know that this one's a redesign, and all that, but seriously? The cover doesn't say anything about the book at all! :O It's just a plain solid color, with a little words here and there. Boring!  I'm glad I saw the cover at the right first; otherwise, I wouldn't even have bothered to try this book/movie!

2.  Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
I haven't read this series yet, although I've been hearing lots of great reviews about this.  I just can't push myself to read it when the cover's like this. (Yes, I judge the book by its cover :c)  I really don't like books with people's faces on it, I don't know why. :o

3.  The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger
I don't like how the title was positioned; it looks so all over the place.  The words inside the letters seemed a little awkward, too.  The face of the girl also looks a little weird. x.x

4.  Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
The cover at the left just doesn't give the book justice; I wouldn't have read this if that was the copy that I first saw.  I actually like the cover of the paperback (right)

5.  Infinity Glass by Myra McEntire
I like the bottom half of the cover, but seriously.  I don't know what that girl is doing in the cover. Her position looks weird and awkward. o.O

6.  Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
I definitely like the original covers better! The redesigned ones just don't show the cuteness and all of the story.  Although, they've started to grow on me, especially the Anna and the French Kiss's!

7.  This Girl by Colleen Hoover
Couples kissing on the cover? No, just no! I hate kissing couples as a cover.

8.  The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles
This too! People's faces + Kissing. Nuh uh.

9.  Mutilate My Heart by Emily Godwin
I actually don't know what this cover wants to show. :o  I haven't read the book yet so I don't know if it's in any connection with the story, but I wouldn't be putting this in my TBR if I didn't see this when I was signing up for blog tours. :o

10.  The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I like the concept of the cover, with all the clouds and chalk-y fonts.  It looks adorable, and I'm a sucker for cute stuffs (not to mention it's blue).  However, I think that this cover doesn't really show what the book is about.  I read this book because my friend recommended it to me, without reading the synopsis.  I thought that this book's of a lighter mood because of the cover design, but I cried buckets of tears here. :o

Ignore the Vampire Academy cover and READ IT NOW!

I haven't read Richelle Mead's books yet, but I'm not a fan of her covers. And I actually like the simplicity of PERKS's green cover and the writing on the other one. Thanks for stopping by!

As a fan of Vampire Academy/Bloodlines, I honestly don't care for the covers much either. I seroiusly considered putting them on my list this week (particularly Indigo Spell, which doesn't resonate with me at ALL). Just ignore the covers and read the series. Trust me. They're incredible.

I agree with the TFiOS cover looking too light and fluffy for what it's about. I got it the day it came out and was not prepared with tissues. I'm still recovering.

Great list! VA and Bloodlines both have really horrible/boring covers. Has put me off reading them for years now. My TTT.

I totally agree with Bloodlines. The cover is so unattractive, but I can promise you that the story is great! I also agree with TFIOS the cover is just not right for this story. I also nominated you for the Liebster Award. For more information check out my blog.

Have you ever seen the cover for Flirting with Trouble? It's the same (bad) stock image as The Kissing Booth. I didn't realize that until I started reading Flirting with Trouble and was so confused about the plot (I had thought I was reading The Kissing Booth).

Jaime said...

Yes to the Bloodlines books! The covers could have been so much better!

I like that TFIOS is super recognizable... but I honestly don't understand what is with the clouds and all that. It doesn't have anything to do with the book. Ughh The DUFF. I wasn't a fan of the book or the cover. Who wears blue eyeshadow?? I LOVE the Sarah Dessen redesigns. Not the one you have up there, but the other one.

Thanks for stopping by My TTT
