Today’s Top 10 topic is covers I’d like to re-design. I have very little artistic ability, but I’d like someone to redesign these covers.
First up is a trend in covers that I’ve never really understood – teenage body parts (legs, torsos) and no face. I don’t get it. I’m ok if the focus is on something else like this Sarah Dessen novel.
But not these
What Happened to Goodbye and Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty
More Like Her by Liza Palmer
I just don’t thinks these covers have anything to do with the books. Look at the pretty face. Buy the book.
Delirium, Pandemonium, and Requiem by Lauren Oliver
And these last two are just kinda meh.
Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta
A Total Waste of Makeup by Kim Gruenenfelder
