Recently I ran across a post from It Starts at Midnight that talked about Topics I Need More Of. One topic was Ugly – Ass Covers. Today I’m going to showcase some Book Covers that I think are Not So Good, Bad, & Ugly at least to me!
We all love covers. We look at them daily. We fantasize. We pet them. They are the first thing we see. The first thing that gets us to even look at a book and maybe pick it up.
So, why on gods green earth would the publishers, authors, and cover designers not make a cover look good? I do get we all have different tastes, but their are just some covers that someone should have said: NO.
For this first edition of The Not So Good, The Bad & The Ugly I’m going to be featuring books off my to-read-list from Goodreads. Just looking at these I can’t understand how they got on my to-read-list. Might have been a giveaway of some kind.
Why? Everything about this cover is odd. I don’t like the girl on it or the coloring.
Why? To much red, dislike the ship, and the man is a bit distracting.
Why? It’s just pieced together. A shirtless man, a girl with gun, and plane bold letters.
Why? Don’t like the horse or man in the background.
Why? To dark and not into the letter type.
What Are Your Thoughts?
Do think one or all of these covers need some work?
