This week’s topic is all about book covers that doesn’t accurately represent the book!
Those books that have nothing to do with the story, or the cover model doesn’t look anything like the actual main character, or it’s a really cheesy cover for a great read!
I actually struggled with this week’s topic a little bit, but here are my choices for the week.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead- The original VA covers are the epitome of this week’s topic. If you haven’t read the series, what would you think it was about? The covers were actually part of the reason I put this series off for so long.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare- Whenever my brother hears me talking about books, he always asks “Is the one with the naked guy on the cover?” While 90% of the time it isn’t (plus he isn’t completely naked, I think), I think that question speaks for this cover all on its own.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne- This is a very beautiful book (if you haven’t taken off the dust jacket… do it), but the cover makes no sense. What is the nest? Are the wings supposed to be the augur tattoo? Is the whole ensemble meant to be a snitch? Who’s in the nest? We’ll never know.
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare- Okay, the main reason why this one is on here is because I’ve never understood why Alec gets to be TWO covers (and both in a row), and yet Izzy doesn’t get to be on a single one. Where’s my girl power at?
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han- This is a very contemporary book style cover, but I still feel like it doesn’t show the meaning of the book. Maybe if Lara Jean was reading a letter? I’m not sure.
