August 6: Cover Redesigns I Loved/Hated (submitted by Rachelle @ Shell’s Stories)

I’m going to stick with positive–Cover Redesigns I Love. (Alphabetical, as usual.) [And hopefully readable, my formatting kept going wonky.]

1.Shadow and Bone; Leigh Bardugo. The first ones are nicely atmospheric, but I love how the simple, bright covers look lined up together.

2. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz; Frank L. Baum. Those colors!

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

3. Fahrenheit 451; Ray Bradbury. Classics have so many redesigns, but I especially like the clear message of this one.

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

4. War for the Oaks; Emma Bull. The first one is brighter, but awfully crowded, and a weird angle.

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

5. Grave Mercy: Robin La Fevers. Because they’re more than girls in pretty dresses, they’re weapons.

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

6. Anna and the French Kiss; Stephanie Perkins. I’m a fan of colorful book covers, and titles you can read easily.

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

7. Carry On; Rainbow Rowell. The second cover captures the events in the book better.

*

*

*

*

*

*

8. Hospital Station: James White. I like the picture of the actual station named, instead of a patient.

    Oh I love the colors and redesigns of Shadow & Bone, and Grave Mercy! You can really tell which cover pops more when they are next to each bother! Great TTT!
