Books Most In Need
of a Cover Re-Design
This hurts because Julie Kagawa is one of my favorite authors, and I love the Blood of Eden series. But I’ve got problems with both of these covers. The MC in this series is Asian, and the girl on the cover of The Immortal Rules is…not. The decision to use a white cover model was no doubt done out of fear that readers would somehow be scared off to see a minority on the cover, and that’s offensive to not only readers, but also to Kagawa. The Eternity Cure escapes this faux dilemma by not having a person on the cover, but this cover choice is so blah. Pretty shade of blue, though.
Inhuman by Kat Falls looks suspiciously like Divergent.
Would you guess from looking at these covers that this series is set in the UK during World War I? Aside from that, the “girl in an ethereal dress” is so overdone and these covers are cheap-looking, to boot.
For a little change of pace, I actually LIKE the covers of Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon and Stung by Bethany Wiggins. It’s what’s underneath the cover that is objectionable.
