Top Ten Covers I Wish I Could Redesign

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's TTT is really hard!  Although I love covers and it's the first thing that makes me want to read a book, I don't keep track of the ones I don't like.  Also, lately books in a series have the tendency of changing (like Shatter Me or the Immortal Rules) or the covers of the whole series gets changed (like Anna and the French Kiss or Dairy Queen).  Anyway, here's what I came up with:

1.  Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne - I don't know why (and I haven't read the book), but this one doesn't work for me.  I'm not sure what it is, but it may be the fame around the picture.

2.  The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling - Uninspiring. 

3.  Nameless by Lili St. Crow - I think it's the font on the title and the lack of contrast that ruins it for me.

4.  This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready - Too plain?

5.  When the World was Flat by Ingrid Jonach - Besides the font and the ribbon, nothing else draws my eye to this cover. 

6.  The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - I adore this book, but not its cover.

7.  The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson - This is one of the best series I've ever read, but I didn't like any of the covers. 

8.  The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider -  I don't find the cover relevant to the story or even pretty. 

9.  Sever by Lauren DeStefano - What's up with the weird green cover?  The previous ones are gorgeous!

That's all I could come up with guys.  What covers do you wish to redesign?


  1. Great list! I came up with nine too, I'm thinking Casual Vacancy will be on a lot of lists including mine! I quite liked the cover of When the World Was Flat but agree about Harbinger, there's just something about it.

  2. I totally agree with The Casual Vacancy, it's so boring! I don't like Harbinger either, there's just something that's not quite right about it!

    My Top Ten

  3. Some really great picks! The Casual Vacancy and TFIOS covers are both really dull! Harbringer just looks weird, not even like a book cover. My TTT.

  4. The Fault in Our Stars was on my list too and I totally agree with you on The Casual Vacancy! Here's my TTT.

  5. I actually like the Harbinger cover. Not so much because of the picture, but I like that the entire thing looks like a tarot card. I wonder if it has something to do with the story.

    1. I haven't read the book so I wouldn't know if it has something to do or not.


I love comments! Please leave me one and I will try to reply as soon as I can. Liza
