This week we are talking about the Top Five Covers I Wish I Could Redesign / Top Five Covers I Wish They Would Have Left Alone. Yes, we decided to add a twist to it since once we started looking at most of our books we noticed that a lot of them have new covers already. Some times those covers turn out awesome, yet the first one was why we fell in love with the book in the first place. Here are our picks! :)
1. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
The whole reason I started reading this series was because of that incredible cover, just look at it! I really wish they would have continued with this theme.
2. Anna and The French Kiss
Yeah I know I'm cheating when it comes to this one, but just go with me. To date this is still one of my favorite contemporary reads. Be honest though when you read that title than saw the cover you automatically thought "What a cheese feast!” I couldn't have been more wrong. That's I'm glad they decided to redo the cover.
3. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I am sooooooo glad they changed the cover. It's so boring and not appealing at all. The new one is perfect, I absolutely love it!
4. Crewel by Gennifer Albin
What can I say about this one, well, I honestly like the older one. It might be that I got used to it and now that they have redone the first book to go along with the second, it just looks "weird" to me
5. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
I love the Shatter Me series and Tahereh to pieces but when they redesigned the covers I was a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the eye is beautiful, the background and colors used are simply amazing but an EYE? Really guys? Maybe it's because I loved the original cover, the girl, the dress, the way it looked like glass was shattering everywhere that I'm not too crazy on these new covers.
6. Gabriel's Inferno by Sylvain Reynard
Sometimes a book cover can be misleading. When I saw the cover for Gabriel's Inferno I thought it'd be a love triangle of sorts but that wasn't the case. AT ALL. If I had the power to redesign, I would have my couple front and center with no creepy guy lurking on the top; or I'd just have the one guy/girl and no couple! I take that back, I'd JUST want the sexy as hell professor on this series, maybe with no shirt on & wearing spectacles. Someone make that happen, pleasssse!
