Hi everyone and welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday.
Today’s topic is inaccurate book covers.
So let’s get started:
The short story – that girl on this old cover is not Celaena. She looks far too angelic, not the bad-ass character we all know, and it’s relatively shallow. I’m glad for the paperback covers I have.
This is a series about time-travel, and yet to me the covers scream regency romance. The models also seem far too pretty and not how I picture Gwen, the main character.
I have just started listening to this on audiobook and from what I gleam about Juliette and her power, I have no idea how an eye is relevant. If there is a reason for this symbolism, maybe someone can enlighten me
I really don’t like this cover and it’s a shame because I think the inside content (writing and black and white illustrations) is amazing. The title is also cheesy and doesn’t do the book justice!
Don’t get me wrong, I love The Mortal Instruments and all of Cassandra Clare’s works, but there is so much more to these books than the relationship between Clary and Jace who always take centre stage on these covers.
And that is it.
Which covers do you think are inaccurate?
Thanks for reading and have a good day!
