Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Redesigns I Loved (&A Few I’m Not So Sure About)

This was so hard!? I also didn’t realize how many cover redesigns there have been. It’s practically every other book had a redesign at some point.
There are definitely more cover changes I loved so I included more of them, but at the bottom you’ll find a few that I’m not so sure about. I don’t hate them, they just wasn’t what I was hoping for.

Though, I will say I’m NOT counting any cover redesigns that involve movie changes. I HATE WHEN COVERS CHANGE TO LOOK LIKE THE MOVIE. I will wait forever to see one that I do like.

Happy Top Ten Tuesday!

Cover redesigns I loved:

An Ember in the Ashes Series by Sabaa Tahir

I love the addition of putting the characters on the cover! They deserve the spotlight and while I wish I could get all of the other covers (one day!) I love having the third (and fourth soon!) in this new design.

The Winner’s Curse Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski

I never quite got the first cover. It’s pretty, and I love the dress. Maybe a nod to her nobility, but the new covers actually show Kestrel for what she is. A strong minded warrior.

Mistborn Series by Brandon Sanderson

These first covers were all just…odd haha. Showing Vin in a better light and more realistic is so much better!

Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi

OH I’m ecstatic these changed before I even started reading them. That first cover is awful. Sorry not sorry. I love the eyes and think it’s really creative!

Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

We all know the new covers are AMAZING. I loved seeing every new design (especially the backs with those dresses!). I didn’t even realize this was a cover change when I started reading them.

Anna and the French Kiss Series by Stephanie Perkins

Ooomph. I love the bright, bold colors that these cover redesign went too. INFINITELY BETTER.

The Shadow and Bone Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo


Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan

I LOVE the new covers. They are more colorful and inviting. Makes me want to pick them up and read them.

Cover redesigns that I’m on the fence about:

But wouldn’t say hated, just not quite what I was already loving.

Shattered Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima

I do love the new covers, but I really wanted them to all match the first series in this saga, Seven Realms. I’m on the fence about these. They aren’t bad, but I like fluidity in novels on my shelves when possible.

I don’t know. I like the addition of Amani on the cover, but the first cover WAS SO PRETTY. I have the book on the left and the other two books as the new covers.

Do you love or not like any of these covers? What’s a cover change you loved or hated? Lets talk in the comments!

  1. Heh, I haven’t seen anyone this week yet who likes it when book covers are redesigned to tie into their films. I think tons of us bookish people find that annoying.

    And I love the new cover for Shatter Me.

    My TTT.

  2. I definitely agree about changing covers to fit the movie. The only one I’ve liked better so far is Good Omens, but I really disliked the original cover, so anything was an improvement, as far as I’m concerned. I so agree about An Ember in the Ashes! I LOVE the new Rebel of the Sands cover. Amani is a badass and deserves to be front and center. Plus, tough women deserve covers. Great picks!

    Here’s my TTT post.

    1. I haven’t seen that one! I’ll have to look it up 🙂 Those are very good points! That’s why I mentioned it was one I’m not sure about vs. hated because I do love that she’s front and center. I just loved all of the colors for the original versions!
      Thank you! 🙂

  3. I can’t believe I forgot about the Anna and the French Kiss design change! Probably because I didn’t read the series until Isla was released so the covers were already changed around a bit by the time I got around to them. I agree 100% with Shatter Me. The first design was so… not it.

    1. I didn’t realize it had been a cover change either until I was trying to figure out some choices for this week!
      And YES for Shatter Me. I don’t even know where the rest of those covers would have gone haha.
