Today's topic is to do with book covers. The stuff we like. The stuff we don't like. I'm kind of a cover snob, and therefore, there's more on this list that I DISLIKE than anything. All images from Goodreads.
The Stuff I Like
1. Amazing typography.
2. Covers that are minimalist, but not boring.
3. Object covers
4. Fantasy covers actually being decent
|Exhibit A (1995)|
|Exhibit B (2014)|
The Stuff That Can Go Either Way
5. The ballgown
6. Close-ups of random body parts
The Stuff That I Wish Would Go Die In A Fire
8. New Adult covers
That's a pretty broad thing to hate, I know. But I've read some INCREDIBLE blurbs for NA books, and then looked at the cover and been firmly on the nope train. Because if I see one more new adult book that features generic white people kissing? I will scream.
9. Models who don't match the character descriptions
10. Movie tie-in editions
So. What cover trends do you love/hate?
