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-
1. 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??
3. 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?
4. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
All I see is the Lion- wearing glasses? Why is he wearing glasses??
5. 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?
