Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
Pretty much everyone loves books covers, right? I know I do. So I LOVE it when these Top Ten Tuesdays concern book covers. I’m going to talk about some cover trends I like, and some I dislike. Who knows how many of each.
TRENDS I LIKE
1) Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour –
Trend: BEAUTIFUL TYPOGRAPHY. Like, font is so important, and this font is really lovely.
2) It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini –
Trend: awesome use of colours – there have been a lot of these in recent releases. The yellow works so well with the other colours, AND it relates to the story.
3) Ink by Amanda Sun –
Trend: of amazing artwork.
4) Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige –
Trend: bold splashes of colour and minimalistic layouts. There have been heaps of these lately!
5) What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang –
Trend: use of space, which is SO AWESOME in these books (another one is Bird by Crystal Chan, which I can never stop harping on about).
6) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell –
Trend: again, minimalism and also the cartoonish, block colours.
TRENDS I DISLIKE
7) The One by Kiera Cass
Trend: froofy dresses. They appear so often, it’s weird. Not a big fan.
8) 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson –
Trend: decapitated person. I LOVE Maureen Johnson, but I HATE the “decapitated person” book cover trend. I just do.
9) Bloodlines by Richelle Mead –
Trend: people in general on covers. I’m sorry but these covers look SO cheesy and kind of put me off (all those Bloodlines fans, don’t take me too seriously, I’m normally very nice)
10) Hold Still by Nina LaCour –
Trend: 1) There’s a person, and we know by now that I don’t like people, and 2) really bland covers don’t do anything for me. Interesting how I’ve got two of her books on here, one for good and one for bad.
Six cover trends I like, four I dislike. Do you share any of them with me? Any you VEHEMENTLY disagree with? Let me know in comments!
