I love to read. I love books, I adore books that are pretty and catch my eyes. But I despise cover redesigns!
These are a few books I love, whose new covers I hate, or think they just don’t go with the series.
The Immortal Rules: I LOVED this book, and it was a total cover impulse buy, it screams vampire and makes me want to know what the story is inside.
Book 2 in the series; this is just not as eye catching to me and honestly if I saw it and hadn’t read book 1 I’d probably walk right by it.
The very first set of books I had problems with the redesigning of a cover was Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander series. I bought the first 4 books in the series before the cover redesigns,
They are whimsical, fun, purple color palates they are pretty. Then after the first 4 they redid the covers for the entire series…. and I wish they had stuck with it…
So to finish the series all the rest of the books look like this… and I’m NOT a fan. They aren’t nearly as interesting to me as the original covers and there is no way for me to get the new books in the original covers. I just wish they had waited until the end of the series to change the look.
Now for a few covers I ADORE, these books I am sad to say actually caused me to buy the book with out even reading the back it was love at first view of the cover, a few didn’t stand up to their cover art and I ended up not loving the book but the rest did!
Enchanted was the only one that REALLY didn’t do it for me, but I LOVE the cover. if you want to read my review of it click here!
Do you like when covers change? Am I just a strange and obsessive person?
