Top Ten Covers We Wish We Could Redesign...Because They Hurt Our Souls

Happy Tuesday friends! Today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the fab The Broke and the Bookish, is dedicated to books we want to makeover (a la Stacy and Clinton, with just as much sass by more snacks). These books deserve better covers. Some because they are kickass but appear lame in their current binding, and some because we need to be able to read in public!

Dan Wells wins for most boring book covers. (Or his publishers. Probs not his fault). These books are great, but these covers are not exactly pushing boundaries. Also, did someone make Kira a white girl on the second cover? Bad news bears all around.


Good books that deserve better covers....because I would never want to pick these up as is....
                       ChimeUnearthly (Unearthly, #1)Defiance (Strange Angels, #4)

This entire series is the ultimate in terrible covers. Exhibit A, Exhibit B.
The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey, #3)The Iron Traitor (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #2)
And the truly bootleg. Did someone make this on their personal computer? It reminds me of the terrible photos in those computer photo-find in your favorite dive bar......I can't read this series for these ridic covers.

Evernight (Evernight, #1)


  1. Haha great picks and that Evernight cover is truly laughable! Great list. My TTT.

  2. I agree that the Iron Fey covers are not that great. The books however are amazing. :)


Comments? Heck ya!
