Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
The topic for this week is: Top Ten Cover Trends I Dislike…
I think by the time I’m annoyed by a persistent trend in covers – the trend is almost over anyway. There have been some I’ve liked, a lot that feel a little too prevalent. I don’t actually dislike any of these covers – on their own they are lovely. Some even really fit the series and I couldn’t think of anything better. But when you put them up against so many others which all seem to fit into the same trend – it’s a bit too much.
1. Covers featuring people’s backs…
2. Gorgeous gowns which usually have little to no relevance to the novel
3. Elegant dead or dying girl
4. People without heads/faces
Covers featured here from left to right (links take you to the book’s page on goodreads):
Blue Bloods | Intertwined | 13 Little Blue Envelopes | Need | I’d Tell You I Loved You But Then I’d Have To Kill You | The Summoning | City of Bones
Faces taking up most of the cover
Mostly black covers
Are there any cover trends you think have been over used? Any you adore and want to see more of?
