I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though?

Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe), and discuss cover changes.

Cover Change: Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs

If you had the pleasure of looking at Tales of the Peculiar in person, it is quite a beauty. I love the simplicity of the image, but yet it’s complex because of the detailing in the vines and the leaves. I love how birds, anchors, snakes, fish, etc are intertwined with the branches and vines. If you don’t look closely, you’ll miss the dragon-like claws and creepy eyes hiding in the image. It’s slightly unsettling because you find these creepy things in the cover. The gold looks beautiful against the forest green background. The cover already tells you a story.

The paperback cover is actually a great redesign. The art is very much in the same style of the art you find in the book, so yay for consistency. I love that you can see the lines and the strokes the artist made for this image. Like the hardcover design, this tells you everything you need to know about this book—there are creepy or off-putting stories that will be told. There’s a woman reading to these kids about invisible man and whatnot. There are animals. There are unexpected things that will surely happen in the book in the dead of night.

Final Verdict: What cover do I like better? Hardcover.

Which cover design do you prefer? Would you buy the the hardcover or paperback cover?

Cover Change: Tell Me Something Real by Calla Devlin

What a terrible mistake. Who approved the paperback of Tell Me Something Real? Because they need to get their eyes checked if they think it’s a great cover design. When you compare it to the beauty of the hardcover, I am at a loss of words.

I love the hardcover because the illustrations are gorgeous. The coloring of it is what makes it amazing. I like that the colors look semi-fade or rubbed off. I really like the title font because it meshes with the overall cover. However, the paperback, what even. The placement of the title is a mess. The positioning of the author’s name is awful too. The flowers are fake as hell. Just why.

Final Verdict: What cover do I like better? Hardcover.

Cover Change: The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia

When I first saw the hardcover design of The Lovely Reckless, I wasn’t a fan. I couldn’t see myself picking up this book because of the cover. The typography left a lot to be desired. I didn’t like the glare of the gray in Kami Garcia’s name. I thought the watercolored graffiti-like couple could’ve been done a bit better. It’s just super forgettable.

Now that paperback cover, I like. The font is fabulous. I found it extremely fitting with the muscle car because it gave a sort of retro vibe. I like the blurs behind the car, making it look like the car is on the go. The red is very eye-catching. It’s a simple, yet striking cover.

Final Verdict: What cover do I like better? Paperback!

Today is St. Patrick’s Day, which means it’s time to drink (responsibly, of course) and wear green!

For this Holy, Mother Cover post, I thought, “why not showcase the green YA covers of this year?” I gotta celebrate St. Patrick’s Day somehow. And voila!

Let’s check out the green Young Adult books that will be published in 2017!
