Let the unpopular opinions fly! It’s safe to say that we all notice a beautiful cover. There are some that as soon as we see them, we MUST pick the book up and read the synopsis. We proudly display them on our shelves so that we can bask in the glory of their beauty. Then there are others………. unfortunate covers that we walk right past in the store and don’t like leaving them face up on the side table. Here are 5 of those unfortunate covers that are currently on my shelves…..
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in participating I would love to have you! Here is a list of my Upcoming Topics in August – please remember to ping back a specific post of mine so I get a notification and I will add you to the participants list!
THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO by Taylor Jenkins Reid
One of my all time favourite books but one of my most hated covers. This book screams to me “shallow hollywood starlet”….. a blond bombshell in a revealing dress posing for the camera. But the book is SOOOOO MUCH MORE THAN THAT! This cover doesn’t match the inside in any way. It makes me think that this book is just another chick lit and not like it’s worth my time. I wish that there was a way that the cover could match the beauty that’s on the inside!
HERE WE ARE NOW by Jasmine Warga
This cover isn’t awful by any means. I love the colours, the font, and the images. But, yet again, I’m faced with a cover that does nothing for me really. This cover doesn’t really say anything about story. And after having read it, it makes even less sense to me!
THE CALENDAR GIRL SERIES by Audrey Carlan
This cover is just blah. There is a picture of a beautiful girl behind the lettering but that’s about it. I know that it’s all about the girl Mia, but even still there’s something about this cover that’s just so mediocre. And there isn’t really anything mediocre about the series at all! The series is AMAZING!
NIGHT FILM by Marisha Pessl
Not a fan of this cover. At all! Before I read it, the cover was ok. But after I finished reading it, the cover annoyed me. The book was creepy and mysterious! I really wish that there was more of a focus on the darkness within the story instead of the girl that had gone missing. I do really appreciate the circle pattern however! It gives an extra layer to the image and makes it unique.
THE MISTBORN TRILOGY by Brandon Sanderson
UGH I loathe these covers! I don’t know why, but I really don’t like even looking at them. I get that they show a strong young girl but that’s not enough to make me like them. It just feels generic and underwhelming. I don’t know why, but these covers make me want to hide them!

Those are the top 5 books who’s covers I don’t particularly enjoy. They aren’t terrible! It’s just that they aren’t my favourite or I don’t feel as though the cover fits the plot inside. I will admit though, if these books had a cover redesign I wouldn’t be mad about it!!
Until next time, happy reading!
