Admittedly, I don’t pay too much attention to cover changes and I don’t let them get to me. However, there are some that I noticed. A couple for the better, but mostly for the best.
First up, the ones that I hated.
I hate this cover redesign deep in my bones. The first is the original hardcover (for the US) and the second is the paperback. And, guess what? The rest of the series is going to have people in it. Ugh. I do not like it. The first cover was better.
I don’t know why, but I’m not a fan of the new coloring. Meh. I like the white background more than the orange one. Plus poppies, to me, are red. Not orange.
Now, the changes that I loved!
I love the new American covers. They look so good! They’re so modern and lovely and ugh. I seriously adore them.
Yep, the one that has Liesel dancing with Death is way better. I’ve said it. I think it just looks so much better and is an apt cover for the story.
I like this one more because I think it’s more representative of Vin’s character. And, it’s not as busy/confusing. It looks more professional. I really do like it more. This redesign is a win from me.
- All of the Pelican Shakespeare copies
I have no idea what the original Shakespeare copies look like, but omg do I love the Pelican copies!! Right now, I’m trying to just get my favorites, but I’d love to have a whole collection of them because they’re just so. damn. pretty.
But, that’s it! That’s my list. I love more book covers than hate them.
Which covers do you love? Which do you hate?
