Ten Book Cover Trends I Like and Dislike
Yay for covers! You know, I don't think I've paid more attention to covers until now, because of blogging! But trends? Hmm I'm not sure if I've noticed any trends. WAIT, nevermind I see where this top ten topic is getting at! Okay, I will try my best with this topic :D
Those covers that have the main character, or at least what's supposed to be the main character, in the center of the cover.
And also the ones with just the fancy title in a fancy font against some sort of background, making those covers look elegant or minimalistic. Look at that font for Siege and Storm, there's even a little dragon on top! And TALON! So simple yet it looks so badass.
The special symbol! Along with the title obviously. The font definitely has to fit for me to like the cover though.
A scene or character from the book illustrated with a ton of colors. These covers are my favorites, because usually the art for them is amazing. :D
Ones where only half of the face is showing of the main character. I don't know what it is with me and faces, but I just don't like them! Though I do like the eye decorations for Days of Blood & Starlight. BUT STILL.
Covers showing those lovey-dovey couples. Well I don't have anything against those, I just tend to avoid those books like the plague for some reason. I should probably read more contemporary though.
How about your thoughts on cover trends? Link up your TTTs below! I'm curious to see what other trends there are out there.
