Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Redesigns

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!

This week the prompt is *cover changes that I love/hate*

For one reason or another, book covers get changed all the time. Some of them are a needed change, while others not so much…

The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

When I saw that this was the topic for the week, these books were the first that came to my mind. Yes, the new covers are pretty & they fit the story a little bit better, but I still think that the original ones are perfect in every way!

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabba Tahir

I know some people don’t really like the cover change for this one. I think the new cover is gorgeous! I love that Laia and Elias are on the cover….yess for representation! I will say that I didn’t like the fact that it was only available in paperback, but now that it is being released in hardcover so I can’t even complain anymore!

The Diviners by Libba Bray

Can we all agree on this one?? I mean obviously the original cover is better, right?? I will never understand why this change was made!

Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins

Not only did this get a new cover, it got a new title as well! I have to admit the original cover is ugly. It’s too plain and it doesn’t represent the story at all. The new cover though….heart eyes for days!

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I may just be the only person who likes the hardcover better for this one. Don’t get me wrong, I like that SImon and Baz are on the paperback, but I really like the other one better.  This answer could change once I actually read the book though soooo check back later.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Okay so a little different one. This is the Owlcrate edition vs the original. I actually love both of these. It’s so cool that they were able to completely change the cover. I do think their edition fits the story better though.

That’s all for now! I definitely have more I can add so I will have to do a part two soon.

Tell me one of your favorite cover changes in the comments!

  1. Yes, I LOVE the original Grisha covers so much! WAIT – is Ember for real being released in hardcover?! I’m SHOOK!!!! But I already have the first two in paperback, so that’s what I’ll stick with! Okay… I know I’m an unpopular opinion, but I can’t stand The Diviners original cover, lol. Everyone always says they love it, but I think it’s so ugly! I love the new covers so much more! Love this post!
