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
I WANT THE NEW COVERS SO BAD. THEY’RE SO PRETTY.
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!
