Worst Book Covers – Top 5 Tuesday

I feel like worst is a little harsh. I mean there are ones that I am just not a fan of or ones that were redone, and others that are nowhere near as pretty as other versions of the covers – and that’s what I want to focus on.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme that the lovely Bionic Bookworm does. If you are interested in doing any of her topics on your blog she welcomes it! Don’t forget to check out her upcoming topics if you’re interested in participating in future Top 5’s! Be sure to check out her post here!

Worst Book Covers:

Everless by Sara Holland

Although I think the UK cover is really pretty, it just pales in comparison to the US cover which I consider to be absolutely gorgeous and so incredibly detailed.

The Thousandth Floor by Katherine McGee

I’m obsessed with the gorgeousness of the US version of the cover – the black and gold is just stunning. The UK version with the girl just seems like a trashy romance cover.

My Lady Jane by Hand, Ashton and Meadows

This version just looks so juvenile and probably would keep a lot of people away from this fantastic book.

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

I’m just not sure what to think about these… poor Harry looks like he has a snake noose around his neck, Dumbledore is grumpy, Hermione is.. not Hermione, and there is just too much going on.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

These all manage to have the same gate across the front and yet.. a totally different girl. They don’t even have the same hair colour! (And Richelle Mead said her guess is that it is Lissa on that third cover, but the others are all supposed to be Rose – so it’s just crazy.)

Simple-Line-Light-4Do you love any of the covers that I just thought were less than appealing? Any ones that you think are the worst that I forgot? Let me know in the comments!

    Totally totally agreed with so many of these! I don’t get some of the major cover changes/degraded like that. My lady Jane one just cracks me up each time. Wonderful picks, Kyera! 🙂
