If These Books Were Judged By Their Covers : Next Cover Redesign

Shatter Me, The Across The Universe series,  An Abundance of Katherines and Sarah Dessen novels ! So many YA novels got makeovers this summer.We wanted to see if we could predict the next series to get a  cover redesign. These are our guesses, which do you think will get a redesign ?

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

Okay so this one is based on something Spotswood mentioned at an author event. She said that some  felt the cover was a little to "sexy" for YA.

Illuminate by Aimee Agresti

We have quite a way to go until Gilded Wings #2 but I have a feeling that the photographic cover might be replacd with something more text heavy. The gilded text stands out so much, I think it could make the cover on its own, similar to the Hungarian Edition of the novel

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

With The Book Thief being adapted into a film I'm betting that this book will soon be sporting a redesign or a  movie tie-in cover.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

The model on this cover is pretty but she doesn't lend much to flexibility. I mean what is she going to face the other way ? I think the next cover might have a full body shot or something less up close and personal.

Which books do you think will (or wish would ) get a redesign next ?


  1. I also posted about cover redesigns today! I hope they don't change Born Wicked or For Darkness Shows the Stars - I think they're both beautiful! I think if they re-did Throne of Glass to look more like the UK version - a kick-ass girl with a big sword - then it would make sense in terms of the plot.

    But to be honest, I hate cover redesigns midseries (which is what my post is about) - now I have to go out and re-buy the same book so I can have a matching set! I think they should release the final book with two covers, so those who started with the original set can complete theirs (even if its a limited time release or something).


  3. Yeah, I hate the mid-series redesigns too. I read your post, it's a good one!

  4. i definitely didn't know the last one was austen-inspired!

  5. For Darkness Shows the Stars is a science fiction story. So the cover is perfect: science fiction plus romance.

  6. I guess for me the cover seemed more like a space fantasy to me because of all the stars. I guess that is what I get for judging a book by it's cover !

  7. I would completely love Nevermore by Kelly Creagh to get a cover redesign! It's horrendous. :(
