Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us bloggers to complete.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is about the covers we wish we could redesign. I admit, I do judge books by their covers. I can’t help it. It’s the first thing I’m drawn to, be it a good or bad design. The covers I’ve pictured are the covers of the books I’ve read. I know that sometimes there is a redesign, but I’ve pinpointed the version I’ve read.
The Casual Vacancy- J.K Rowling– I just find this cover uninspiring. If it wasn’t for the author’s name, I would’ve totally walked past it in a bookstore.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society– Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows– This cover is quite boring to me. I picked up the book on recommendation and because of the cool title. Definitely not because of the cover.
The Other Hand- Chris Cleave– This book has also been published under the name Little Bee. (Don’t you hate it when that happens?!) I absolutely adore this book, but the cover isn’t particularly appealing.
The Bone Season– Samantha Shannon– I wouldn’t have picked this book up if it wasn’t for the hype surrounding it.
What are the covers you wish you could redesign? Feel free to link me to your posts!
