Top Ten Tuesday: Covers I Wish Could Be Redesigned

Posted November 12, 2013 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Top Ten Tuesday / 8 Comments

toptentuesdayIt’s Tuesday again which means time for another round of Top Ten Tuesday; I like joining in of this meme because I have a set topic to work with. Top Ten Tuesday is a book blogger meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week the theme is: Top Ten Covers I Wish Could Be Redesigned.


  • Happy Hour in Hell by Tad Williams – it’s tacky and doesn’t seem to match book 1 in the series.
  • Fadeout by Joseph Hansen – great novel; very boring and unappealing cover.
  • The Last Whisper in the Dark by Tom Piccirilli – when you compare it to the first book, it just doesn’t stand out as much.
  • Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan – not a bad cover, I just think it could use with a makeover.
  • Perchance to Dream by Robert B. Parker – even though it was a terrible book, the cover doesn’t seem to match the Philip Marlowe series.
  • Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell – the original cover is catchy but I don’t feel like it really says anything about the novel.
  • Prodigal Son by Dean Koontz – dull and unimpressive.
  • Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke – just feels really plain.
  • Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro – that face is just too much.
  • The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz – while not so bad, it could be improved.

    I like the David Levithan cover. I know it’s not super exciting but I think it’s cute. Agree that the Dean Koontz is pretty boring.

    There’s a different cover of Never Let Me Go with a girl spinning. I find that one really pretty. I definitely agree with you that the ‘creepy girl cover’ should be redesigned!
