This Week’s Question:
Top Ten Covers I Wish I Could Redesign
This is a really hard one as most of the books i pick up have pretty covers and those that don’t have already been re-designed!
So i’m going to change the title slightly to: Top Ten Covers I Don’t Understand Why They Redesigned
The Old covers will be on the left and redesigned on the right
If it’s a series i’ve just included the first book.
I mean it’s so pretty, why change it? Especially to that cover, the new one doesn’t do anything for me, i would be much more likely to pick up the original than new.
Obviously these covers are very similar and feature the same picture, however i much prefer the layout of the first and it definitely makes me more curious than the newer one. It seems like it’s just taking the trend of adding a city to the cover and i don’t really see the need for it.
I love the original cover it so inviting and definitely something i would want to pick up, whereas the new cover just seems like a typical romance cover or something and nothing particularly special.
This one makes no sense to me, why slightly change the cover in this way? Especially since they’ve just darkened the red to the point you can’t really see it, i mean read the title? It says RED, it just doesn’t make sense to me.
Whereas this book doesn’t hold my attention like it used to, i still love the original cover, the bite marks indented into the page made me pick up this book and i do honestly believe the original cover is better.
I mean what? I love the original cover and both of the 2 ‘new’ covers just don’t compare, i can kind of understand the one with the sheet over her face, however the original is definitely still best!
I love the first covers, they represent the factions and just look so pretty and it really stood out to me as a cover. Whereas the redesign is just meh. nothing particularly special. I don’t understand the change and much preferred the earlier covers!
I love this series but hate how it looks in my bookshelf, i have a mixture of paperbacks and hardbacks of the original covers for the first four books, however when i bought both 5&6 the only cover available at the time was the red one, and i like my series to match up. Not change covers in the middle of a series, especially when there’s nothing wrong with the originals! I don’t mind the new covers, but prefer the old and it makes my bookshelf look funny 😦
There have been three or four different covers for these books but it’s these 2 that i’m specifically talking about. I love my old(er) cover copy (i know it’s not the original, original but it was released in 2007 so it’s old) and was slightly upset when they released the new cover. I know it’s to tie into the glass series, but i still preferred the old covers
I know lots of people like the new covers, however i was a really big fan of the original covers and was upset to see them change to this.
If anyone has any disagreements or comments let me know! Just to clarify these thoughts are my personal views and i mean no harm by stating these, if i have angered anyone i am sorry and that was not my intention.
What are your top ten this week?
