Top Ten Covers I would Redesign

This was a challenge for me.  I really don’t pay THAT much attention to covers that I don’t like.  I have been known to pick up a book because I DO like the cover, but I usually don’t mind a bad one.  I did however find a few that I didn’t care for.  Here they are-

52031.  She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb

I just think this is weird.  Why is half of her face floating above the water?  A bit too “Dahli” for me.

2.  Carrie by Stephen King

It might be in German-but WTF??

127990583.  Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand

I know- looks like a cool cover- fun, beachy, friends.  Totally fine until you know that the story is about a terrible car accidents that rips the lives of four teenagers apart.  Not exactly what the cover conveys?

2360934.  The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum

All I see is the Lion- wearing glasses?  Why is he wearing glasses??

2274435.  Bridget Jones’ Diary by Helen Fielding

It’s just weird.

6.  The Same Cover-Different Books

Why use the same idea for different books?  They’re not sequels, so why?

7.  Movie Version Covers

I do not want to picture these people.  I want to come up with my own picture in my head- exception to this rule was Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn.  And Orlando Bloom as Legolas.

What covers do you wish you could change?

 Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait to Read

1.  Doctor Sleep by Stephen King

I just finished The Shining and I NEED more King!  Why not continue on with Danny Torrance’s story?

2.  Sycamore Row by John Grisham

Love Jake Briggance!

3.  Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich

Stephanie Plum is my guilty please.  Come on and marry Moretti already!

4.  Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

Ok- not SO thrilled once I heard about the big shocker- spoiler alert!!  No Darcy?  But I still want to read it.

5.  Dust by Patricia Cornwell

I am a Kay Scarpetta junky- I know enough is enough, but another guilty pleasure.

6.  Inferno by Dan Brown

I know this isn’t exactly new, but I still haven’t read it.

.  **Need to read the first and the sequel**

7.  The Wolf Chronicles by Anne Rice

I used to love reading this author- her Vampire Chronicles and Mayfair Witches series were so fun-and I hear her son is pretty talented too!

8. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

I have heard this is really good, but have never started it- probably because my local library never has it in!

Hmmm….my whole list could be a “guilty pleasures” list.

So, what sequels are you waiting for?

Please leave a comment- I love to hear from you!!
