Top Ten Tuesday (77)- My Top Ten Book Covers I Wish I Could Redesign


Hi thanks for stopping by!!! And welcome to my Top 10 Tuesday post! 

Thanks to the lovely ladies at The Broke And The Bookish for creating this weekly meme!

Here's this week's topic.

August 9: Top Ten Tuesday REWIND-- go back and do a topic you missed over the years or recently or a topic you really want to revisit.

I chose a topic from April 2011, Book Covers I Wish I Could Redesign. These are all books I've read, loved, and hated the covers or books that I've read that had an amazing original cover that the publisher decided to redesign and was an awful redesign.

I'll add book covers so click on the cover to be taken to their Goodreads links. Also if the cover is a redesign I'll post both the original cover and the bad redesign. You'll notice that all the redesigns I hate are Penguin or Simon & Schuster redesigns. I have no idea why they feel the need to redesign perfectly good book covers.

1. I just recently read this one and I really enjoyed the story! I can't stand this cover though.





2. Loved this story but man do I hate this cover something fierce!




3. Ok here's one that's gone through a cover change. There was nothing wrong with the first and it's by far my favorite.

4. Another Andrea Cremer book. Such a good book and such an ugly cover.




5.  Another redesign I hated. But I am obsessed with this series!

6. Another bad redesign. I loved this book too!

7. And one last Andrea Cremer one which had a horrid redesign. Book 2 was redesigned as well but I didn't like that original cover.

8. And I think these are the worst offenders when I comes to redesigns! I feel really bad for the author too! Talk about a bad knock off of the Throne of Glass Covers!

9. I love this series but this redesign really made me upset. The original covers were so pretty!

10. And last but not least! I lost count how many redesigns this series went through and I still think the original cover for book 1 was the best!

So what about you? What are some covers you wish you could redesign? And check back next week for my Top Ten Books With X Setting (top ten books set near the beach, top ten book set in boarding school, top ten books set in England, etc)! 


Hugs,
Jaime

  1. Some of these original covers are bad! I hate it when the cover doesn't do justice to the story inside.

  2. I see terrible covers and terrible redesigns all the time on classic children's books. How does that happen? It isn't as if they didn't have years to work on the redesign!

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. Ugh. The Winner's Curse trilogy redesign is truly awful. It's not true to the story at all, except for maybe the last book but I have issues with the third one so... yeah. I liked Landry Park too and have to agree. Bad redesign. There might be nothing worse than a bad cover except maybe a bad cover redesign.
