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.
Summer will officially start on June 21st, and what better way to celebrate the start of summer by taking a look at Sarah Dessen’s summery book covers?
For the next eleven weeks, I will be showcasing the cover of Sarah Dessen’s books. Yes, you heard that right. Eleven. Weeks. Eleven glorious Sarah Dessen book covers. Her books are the embodiment of summer. It will be awesome.
Shall we start?
Let’s be honest, nobody follows the age-old cliché that tells us not to judge a book by its covers. If you say you do, I am side-eying you. Book covers are the first thing that attracts any of us readers to a book. Before you pick up a book, the cover can essentially make or break a book. If I don’t like a cover design, I won’t pick it up. Lucky for us, publishing companies publish different cover designs, especially when a paperback book comes out. Sometimes we like it, sometimes we don’t. Let’s discuss these cover changes, shall we?
Today, we look at the cover of Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen!
