Top Ten Least Favorite Covers
There are covers I absolutely love. This week, I thought it would be interesting to the complete opposite. It was definitely interesting to think about what it is about covers I don’t like so here are my 10 least least favorite covers.
- Contagious by Emily Goodwin, Seduciton by M.J. Rose and The Enemy by Charlie Higson. For Contagious, I found the girl super annoying- everything from the way she’s standing to what she’s wearing. I liked Seduction, but I didn’t like the colors. And I have no reason for not liking The Enemy. The colors are sort of interesting, but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t pick this one up if I were browsing. A guy running down an alley or whatever…I don’t think it would get my attention.
- Crash by Nicole Williams, Daughter Of The Forest by Julliet Marillier and Hourglass by Myre McEntire. While the cover for Crash captures the book really well, I don’t particularly want to look at shoes. I don’t like the cover art for Daughter Of The Forest. I don’t particularly like the colors. And for Hourglass, I wasn’t drawn in by a girl standing in front of a door or a wall, or whatever it is she’s standing in front of.
- After by Amy Efaw, Exodus by Julie Bertagna and The City Of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau. After: A girl standing against the wall isn’t something that would get my attention. For Exodus, I think the hand and the water-swirly thingy are a little weird. Especially the hand. While the word Ember is cute as a part of the light bulb, I don’t like the colors. It seems a little drab to me.
- Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, The Line by Teri Hall and The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling. Poison Study is pretty awesome. The cover, however, is not one of my favorite covers for her books. I was expecting the colors to be prettier. The Line: I guess it goes with the book but another case of finding the cover boring. As for The Casual Vacancy: I know it seems weird to have JKR on a list of least favorite things. But Harry Potter it is not. I know I shouldn’t compare the covers for HP and Casual Vacancy, but I think part of me was expecting something different. As much as I liked The Casual Vacancy, I just couldn’t like the cover.
