Top Ten Tuesday: Covers I Wish I Could Redesign

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish is: Covers I Wish I could Redesign. This has no bearing on the actual story – some of these are books I actually really love, but the covers are just bad.

 Elemental (Elemental, #0.5)1. Elemental by Brigid Kemmerer. He kind of looks like creepy EuroTrash.


2. Runner by Patrick Lee. It’s such a clichéd cover. And it doesn’t really fit with the book.

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)  The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)

3 & 4. The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves and by Maggie Stiefvater. I really enjoyed these books, but the covers are horrible.

Gone Girl

5. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. It’s such a simple cover for such a dynamic book.

6-10 belong to my 2 least favorite types of covers: Extreme Close-ups and Couples Coupling

  Requiem (Delirium, #3)  Before I Fall  Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4)  Frigid (Frigid, #1)  Opal (Lux, #3)

6. Requiem by Lauren Oliver

7. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (does she NOT have a book cover that isn’t an extreme close-up?)

8. Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

9. Frigid by J. Lynn

10. Opal by Jennifer Armentrout

  1. The extreme close-ups is a trend that irritates me that I forgot. I remembered oddly faceless people (either cut off or in a weird shadow) and torqued female characters that will be be developing spine problems from that pose, though.
