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 10 of what is turning out to be a very ongoing post. (There’s just so many changes) Click for Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, and the Omnibus edition, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, Part 12, Part 13, Part 14.
The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider
Not a huge change but a dramatic one. I adore the bright colors of the original, but if the new one appeals to boys more then I’m okay with it. I’m not really a fan of the font on the new cover, though.
Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian
I know some people HATE kissing covers. I’m not one of them, but I still think the original is only meh…but I really don’t like the new one. I don’t think it fits the tone of the story well and I wouldn’t give it a second glance in the bookstore. Which is too bad because I loved the book.
Burn for Burn by Siobhan Vivian and Jenny Han
This one isn’t a drastic change either, but I noticed it right away. I must say I like the hardback cover a lot, I always have. I love the filter and transparent font. But maybe that’s why they changed it. Maybe they felt like it didn’t stand out enough? I donn’t really care for the new cover. That green is out of place and all the different fonts! Too many!
Wild Cards/Better Than Perfect by Simone Elkeles
Not only a cover change but a name change! I haven’t read this book but I like the changes.
The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler
I really adore the original cover. It’s so different than other covers out there. The purple and orange colors are so striking, and the book! You can’t go wrong with a book on the cover. The paperback version isn’t horrible, but it looks like everything else out there.
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
I never really liked the original cover, but I love, love, love this new one! It’s so unique and just…gorgeous! I also love that it matches I’ll Give You the Sun.
What do you think of all these changes?
