Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Top Ten Covers I Wish I Could Redesign.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Wallbanger by Alice Clayton
This cover is awful for such an awesome book I confused the girl’s knees as the guy’s hands and boy, was that a nightmare. In fact, I already did a redesign for the cover of Wallbanger.
2. Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter
That cover model’s face creeps me out every time I look at the cover. Why couldn’t they keep the old cover model, the one they had and used for Alice in Zombieland?
3. Teardrop by Lauren Kate
I have this GREAT urge to redesign/rephotoshop the cover model’s waistline. Her waist is too skinny to be true.
4. Thornhill by Kathleen Peacock
I’ll love to fix the cover of Thornhill and make it look a lot less photoshopped.
5. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
There is absolutely no doubt that this series needs a good cover redesign.
6. Auracle by Theo Lawrence
I’m not sure if you guys know, but there’s a cover redesign for the paperback edition of Auracle, which is absolutely RIDICULOUS in my opinion because the cover is fine the way it is. I’ll love to change the paperback cover back to its original, better version.
7. Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
This cover is just so…plain. I’ll love to add more color to it.
8. Landline by Rainbow Rowell
I wanted Landline to match the cuteness of Rainbow Rowell’s other books: Attachments, Eleanor & Park, and Fangirl. Landline just doesn’t match them in my opinion.
9. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
This cover just doesn’t do it for me. It’s plain and what’s with the half-bow half necklace thing? It also has too much pink-orange on the cover to suit my taste.
10. In the End by Demitria Lunetta
I don’t really like the color tones of this one. It’s just too dark for my taste; I don’t like the red and dark brown coloring.
And now, I want to know, what are your top ten covers you wish you could redesign?
