Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This weeks TTT was another hard one! There aren't many covers that I don't like. I only thought of five for this week. I'm pretty happy with most of them. But there are a few that I don't like and wish I could redesign. Here they are!
Top Ten Covers I Wish I Could Redesign
The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall
It's not that I don't like the covers of these books, I do! It's just that I don't think they're very memorable. If I hadn't had a recommendation to read this book, I probably would never have noticed it. And that makes me sad to think about, because these books are so good. I think it needs a redesign so more people would pick it up and try it!
Turtle in Paradise by Jennifer L. Holm
Again, it's not that I don't like the cover of this book, I do! But this cover does not fit this book at all. Yes, it does take place in Key West. But she only goes to the beach like, once! I mean, it's been awhile since I read it, so I could be remembering it wrong. But to me, it just does not fit the book.
Circus Galacticus by Deva Fagan
This cover. Just, this cover. It's ugly. At least in my opinion. I wonder if the cover is why more people haven't tried this book? Definitely a case of "don't judge a book by it's cover" because this book is really good. The only good thing about the cover is the font at the top.
Rapunzel: The One with all the Hair by Wendy Mass
NO. No no no no no. Horrible, horrible cover for this book. The original cover wasn't bad, I liked the illustration on the cover of it. But this one? Just. No. The Really fake looking hair. The fact that she is wearing a modern dress, when the book is an old fashioned fairy tale. I'm sorry, No.
Beauty and the Beast: The Only One Who Didn't Run Away by Wendy Mass
I do like the cover for this book! It just doesn't fit the story, because if you gave the book a different title, would you guess it's a fairy tale retelling? The time period it takes place in, is definitely not modern. And yet, she's dressed like someone you would see today. It just doesn't work for the book.
There's my TTT list this week! What's on yours?
