Top Ten Tuesday (38)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This weeks Top Ten topic is …

Top Ten Four Covers I Wish I Could Redesign

This isn’t really a topic I find particularly inspiring, because generally I don’t pick up books whose covers I don’t like/don’t interest me. I’m also not great with design. So I’m somewhat stumped by how to approach this topic… Oh well, here goes.

Unspoken US cover

Unspoken UK cover

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

The original US version of this book was absolutely gorgeous, and then I saw the UK cover… Yeah, not my cup of tea. There’s no real gothic feel to it, or anything. I do like that it shows an accurate representation of Kami though.

Seraphina US cover

Seraphina UK cover

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

When I first heard of this book, and saw the US cover I was sold. It looked amazing. Then I got a look at the UK cover, and it just didn’t work for me. The book felt entirely too modern.

Angel Dust by Sarah Mussi

I’m not totally sure what doesn’t work about this cover for me, but it just feels wrong. I think the girl on the cover is supposed to be the main character, but she doesn’t really fit with my image from the book. It would have been kinda cool to have an angelic figure with that background though.

Drink Deep by Chloe Neill

On the whole I think the covers of these books are quiet well done, but sometimes the cover model looks like she doesn’t quite know how to handle the swords she is holding. This cover is a case in point.
