October 10, 2016 • Cee • Holy Mother Cover


Inspired by What She ReadsPure Imagination Blog, and Stacked.

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.

(A big special thanks to Georgie at What She Reads for bestowing me this fabulous name and to Charlotte at The Simple Tales for creating the beautiful feature banner you see before you.)


COVER CHANGE: The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian

I really like the hardcover of The Last Boy and Girl in the World. What I love about this cover are the illustrations (it has a minimalistic quality to it); the colors (love that there’s different shades of blue for the water and that it’s all in the shape of diamonds); and the sans serif typography (nice effect of the words start bleeding into the water).

The paperback cover is…okay. The thing I really like about this cover is the typography of the title. It’s so pretty. Other than the title, I’m indifferent to what’s portrayed. There’s a couple in a boat, showcasing the romance in the book, and the water that looks like everything’s underwater.

Final Verdict: What cover do I like better? Definitely the hardcover.

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

    I prefer the hardcover too! The design is just so unique, whereas in the paperback, it just looks like any other contemporary with a unique font…

    I like the softcover but like you it’s mostly because of the Typography. I feel like I see that font around alot.

    I think the hardcover is certainly more striking! I love the minimalist style the designer employed :)

    Omg I hate when they change the cover design between hardback and paperback :( mostly because I buy paperback (cheaper..) and hardback always have the nicer cover, like here!
