I did a post about cover changes two weeks ago, but there were so many that I left out! So, I decided to do another one:
Cover changes happen. I’ve come to terms with that. Sometimes I don’t always understand them but I assume that the publishing industry knows a lot more than me. That doesn’t mean I can’t have an opinion and a preference. So I want to point out some of the cover changes I adore…and the ones I do not. Whether it be repackaging or new covers for paperback. Feel free to state your opinion as well.
If it ain’t broke…
Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys
I definitely like the first cover much, much better. The new paperback one makes me think paranormal and that isn’t at all accurate.
Fury by Elizabeth Miles
The original cover is eye catching and gorgeous. Plus, I think it fits the story so well. The new one is plain in comparison.
Chime by Franny Billingsley
This one makes me sad. The original cover was beautiful, dark, and magical…everything the book is. The new one just looks kind of weird. The pale girl and the green…it doesn’t work for me. I love the hardback cover and I wish they would have kept it. Is it the same model on both?
Dani Noir/Fade Out by Nova Ren Suma
I know they are trying to appeal to a different audience but I still can’t help but love that first cover. I really adore it and I’ve had it on my TBR for a long time because of that cover. I do like the new one but I don’t adore it…
On the Fence:
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I really really like the original cover. I love it anytime the actual book has an image or design on it and the peak-a-boo dust jacket made it even better. I think the first cover fits the book better as well. I like the new cover okay, but I think it’s very run of mill and common.
It was love at…second sight:
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King
I love the simplicity and uniqueness of the original cover but the new one is fantastic!
Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me by Kristen Chandler
I like the first cover but the paperback one is what made me buy the book.
Please Don’t Ever Change:
I have a part 3 planned because there’s soooo many! What do you guys think of these?
