Don’t Judge a Book by It’s Cover is a new feature where I showcase some of the covers I dislike, but ultimately loved the book!
I know! I must be the only person in the world that doesn’t like this cover! I honestly didn’t even add it to my wish list until I received the book in the mail unexpectedly. I was completely turned off my the cover, because it looks like a adult paranormal romance cover to me. I have no problem with PR but I guess I just don’t want my YA covers to look like them. But I did end up LOVING the book, that just goes to show that I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover!
Oh and I do like the cover for Wolfsbane much better!
My Review of Nightshade
I wrote the above before the new cover controversy! It was announced a couple of weeks ago that the covers were going to be changed to this:
I really like the new covers, buuut it seems like other people did not! So Penguin is in talks to maybe not change them. We’ll see how it turns out.
Here’s another cover that I didn’t like, although it looks much better in person. When I first saw it, though, I did not like it. It’s too…plain! And after reading the book I’m still not a fan of the cover, because the story is awesome! There is so much potential for a awesome cover, but it just didn’t happen! I’m sooo happy that I read the book, though. Because it was fantastic!! Maybe the sequel will have a more interesting cover!
My Review of Darkness Becomes Her
So, what do y’all think? Do you love these covers? And what do you think of this feature? Should I expand it to include covers that I LOVE but didn’t like the book? Let me know your thoughts!
