Don’t Judge a Book by It’s Cover is a feature where I showcase some of the covers I dislike, but ultimately loved the book!
Finnikin of the Rock & Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta
You guys! Finnikin is my FAVORITE read of 2012 so far and I LOVED Froi as well. Oh how I loved them…but those covers….They’re not the greatest in my opinion. Especially Froi. I think that I’m not a lover of fantasy covers in general, though. Fantasy is my favorite genre but the covers never make me think ‘Oooo pretty.’ If you’re like me and don’t care much for the covers, don’t let that stop you from reading the books! They are two of the most amazing works of Young Adult Fantasy that you will ever read.
Starters by Lissa Price
I do not like this cover. Not even a little. I’ll admit that it does look somewhat better in person because it’s shiny but I don’t like the digital look at all. I would never have picked this up on my own had it not been for other bloggers saying how amazing it is. I read it and loved it! I thought maybe after I read the book I would like the cover more, but I don’t. I like the computer panel images. That suits the story well, but I still don’t like the girl.
So, what do you think of these covers?
