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. This is Part 3 of what is turning out to be a very ongoing post. (There’s just so many changes) Click for Part 1 and Part 2.
The Secret Year by Jennifer R. Hubbard
I like the original cover. I like the paperback cover a little more….The new paperback cover however….It’s a little raunchy isn’t it? I’ve saw erotica covers that were more tame than that. It’s not one that I would want to read in a public place. I did love the book, though!
Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
I like both of these covers. I think they both fit the book well. I adore the colors of the hardcover. Which do you like?
All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin
These are two very different covers. I haven’t read the book yet so I can’t really say which one I think fits the story best. I like the simplicity of the original cover, but the new one is definitely more eye-catching. I think it looks a little like a adult paranormal romance cover, though.
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
This is another book that I haven’t read. I like the hardback cover, but I think I might like the new cover just a tiny bit better. I like the pink, although that’s not very gender neutral, but I really like that typography with the girl showing through.
Sweetly by Jackson Pearce
The Sisters Red cover is also changing, but this is the only one released as of now. I like the new concept but I think I like the old ones much better. What do you think?
Glimpse by Carol Lynch Williams
I discovered this one in the bookstore the other day. The original cover has made it onto many of my favorite covers lists. There’s just something about those colors that pull me in, but I do really like the new cover. It’s definitely different from anything else out there and it’s striking! I would certainly pick that book up if I was browsing the shelves.
Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson
I’d saw this book around but never really paid attention to it until I saw that new cover on The Hiding Spot. That is exactly the point of changing covers, right? The did a great job with this one. I love the new cover and it about three troublesome girls in Georgia. Sounds like something I would love!
