We're always told not to judge books by their covers but, really, it's hard to help it. There's a lot of aspects that make a cover good or not and everyone sees them a little differently. So, in these posts I'm doing what we all do when we pick up a book - judging their covers.
Colors: I really like the way the blue steadily gets darker on the cover until it's eventually just completely black. I think that really symbolic of the book as the whole.
Font: Not my favorite but I don't think they really could have gotten away with anything else considering it takes up the majority of the cover. Better to keep it simple.
Images: Well, the main image is really the title and the bubbles. They are very significant to the story and I feel that cover images does a lot for the book as a whole.
Cover Relevance: It's a subtle and you don't fully grasp the relevance until the end, but it's definitely there.
Rating: Not my favorite but a perfect fit for the story.
Colors: I love them. The gray background really makes the red stand out and I love the splotches of black.
Font: So lovely and fits the feel of the story quite nicely.
Images: I love the infinity sign, especially how it is smeared and dripping. It makes it 10x better!
Cover Relevance: This is so relevant to the story. I don't think it could get any more relevant, really.
Rating: Holy cow, this is one gorgeous cover. Yes, please.
Colors: I'm not a huge fan of how the letters fade from purple to blue. I would like it better if it was all one color.
Font: I like the font of every letter except the R.
Images: Meh. It's just a girl and a guy lying there. Not a huge fan, honestly. But it's not as terrible as it could be with just two people on the cover.
Cover Relevance: Not really relevant. I mean, sure, the main characters are on it but it doesn't tell me much else about the book. They could be vampires for all I know. It gives off a very vampiric feel to me.
Rating: Would have passed it over it I hadn't already read and enjoyed the first book in the series.
Colors: So pretty!! I adore how colorful it is. The orange, pink, purple, and blues go really well together.
Font: I luff it. It's so pretty and it makes me wish I could write like that.
Images: I'm not a huge fan of having people on covers but I like it much better on here since they're silhouettes. Plus we have the water and part of a surfboard which is nice.
Cover Relevance: It's fairly relevant. A lot of the story is centered around surfing and stuff.
Rating: It's pretty but kind of generic. Still nice to look at on my bookshelf!
What do you think of these covers? Any favorites?
