Top 5 Tuesday is weekly meme hosted by Shanah and this week’s topic is Top 5 Worst Book Cover
I know we’re not supposed to judge books by their cover but let’s be honest here, do you even pick up bad cover books in the bookstore? Because I don’t, I probaby glance at them, make a face, and walk through! Amazing cover with plain ordinary story has way bigger chance to be picked, why couldn’t the publishers and the authors get that?
I’m really glad that I watched the movie before I read the books, if it wasn’t because of the movie I wouldn’t even bother to read these honestly. I mean, they’re not entirely bad but they really didn’t interpret the grandeur of the story. The covers are plain boring, who would have thought that the story are so magical and addicting?!
Kate Daniels Series
OH MY GOD, I can’t even find a proper word to describe how bad these covers are. I hate the picture of an actual human on a book cover (except The Selection series, they’re gorgeous okay!). WHAT EVEN IS THIS? I know the stories are great, I’ve heard so many praises about the series and some of my friends are really like them. I really want to read these, I really do, but I can’t! Maybe I won’t ever, probably until they remake the cover!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy
I’ve only read one book by Laini Taylor, it was Strange the Dreamer. And I finally understood why people love her books! So many of my friends recommend this series to me because I love STD so much but I can’t even stand the cover. They’re a litte bit scary for me, and they’re weird too!
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
I really love the movie, that was what bring me to read this amazing book with the terrible cover! In my defense, this is the only edition we have in library so I guess I have no choice but to suck it up!
BASICALLY ALL OF THE ROMANCE/EROTICA BOOKS WITH MAN’S ABS ON THE COVER!
Now call me conservative all you want but I really don’t think it’s appropriate to show this many skin on a book cover! As a matter of fact, I don’t think human should be on book cover! It was just a bad bad idea ( again, not you The Selection, you are amazing!)
Do you agree or disagree? Which book do you think has the worst cover? Do you judge books by their cover too?
