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: 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.
