Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This is one meme I can get on board with - I LOVE lists! I'll show you mine if you show me yours!

This week's topic is supposed to be the Top Ten Covers We Wish We Could Redesign. In thinking about it, I couldn't really come up with more than one or two. So, I'm changing it a bit.My new topic for this week is...

Top Ten Covers I'm SO Glad Were Redesigned

1. Breathe, by Abbi Glines

2. Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi

3. Slammed & Point of Retreat, by Colleen Hoover

4. Demanding Random, by Megan Squires

5. Poison Study, by Maria V. Snyder

6. Beautiful Disaster, by Jamie McGuire

7. Bared To You, by Sylvia Day

8. Delirium, by Lauren Oliver

9. Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins

10. Feral Sins, by Suzanne Wright

Wow, yes, some of these redesigns are absolutely better, although you often get the other way around (like Across the Universe series...). Nice picks!

Nice picks! Funny, I was one of the ones upset with the change in Poison Study! I have Fire Study on my list because I wish it could look like the first two original covers.

Here's my Tuesday Post

Have a GREAT day!

Ooo, good picks. Well, most of them lol. I do love the originals of Poison Study and Bared to You. They seem to fit the books better. And I like both versions of Anna & the French Kiss and Beautiful Disaster.

Some of the redesigns are much better! I particularly like the Slammed redesigns!

I agree with most of your picks, although I do like the old covers for Breathe and Poison Study better. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier! :)

The original Beautiful Disaster creeps me out.

Rachel said...

Nice topic change! SHATTER ME is one of the few cover redesigns where I actually like the new cover more--when I saw the original cover, I was never as interested in the book. Thanks for stopping by!

I really like the new Shatter Me, Demanding Ransom, and Breathe covers too!

I don't like any of the covers for Beautiful Disaster. Also I liked the original cover for Breathe better. I didn't know Slammed got redesigned but they are definitely way better than the old covers!

Cool list; LOVE the layout! I think the change for Abbi Glines' books fit the switch to the more mature new adult content, but the first cover fits the original young adult version. I love the redesigns for Stephanie Perkins' books and Beautiful Disaster, but I'm afraid I disagree with the Delirium change, and I'm not a fan of either Shatter Me cover. Don't get me wrong; they're both lovely, but I don't think they fit the series. In fact, they made MY list today as covers I would redesign. ;)

I agree with all of them, except with Anna and the french kiss, I liked the old cover better! In the case of Delirium I love both of them!

Oh my god, I had never seen the original cover of Beautiful Disaster before and I really wish I could un-see it. That's awful! Why would anyone do that?? Blah! Gross.

And I agree that Slammed and Point of Retreat are much improved. And pretty much all the other ones you picked. Great job!

Jaime said...

Totally agree with Poison Study (although I prefer the Australian covers) and Shatter Me. I will admit I like the old Delirium cover better though.

oh wow, I have never seen the original cover for beautiful disaster before. That is disgusting. lol.

I HATE that Beauiful Disaster tongue!! Terrible!! And I think the new Stephanie Perkins designs have grown on me now. I know a lot of people that think the original covers show how light and sweet the books are, but I also know a lot of people who didn't want to read them because the covers looked so juvenile. I love the eyelashes of The Shatter Me covers... so cool!! And I think I'm more of a fan of the original Delirium. I like that blue color and it stands out. But I've seen it on a lot of lists this week so I think I'm in the minority :(

Thanks for stopping by My TTT

I definitely agree with Shatter Me, Slammed and Beautiful Disaster! In these cases, the changes were definitely for the better! Great list :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

I LOVE the new Perkins covers! And I say that even though I have the first two books with the original covers. The Delirium and Shatter Me covers are a big upgrade, and that original Beautiful Disaster cover is just gross.
