Inaccurate Book Covers

–Those books that have nothing to do with the story, or the cover model doesn’t look anything like the actual main character, or it’s a really cheesy cover for a great read!

These points and criticism don’t have anything to do with my thoughts on the stories in the books.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling & John Tiffany & Jack Thorne 

I don’t understand this cover at all and I think it is really ugly. Someone please explain. It is sad because it has so much potential for an awesome cover.

Speaker of the Dead by Orson Scott Card

When I was reading this book I was very confused about the cover. The building on the cover is not in the book, and it don’t have anything to do with the story. I feel like they chose that picture only because it looked cool and sci-fi.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

I don’t understand the book covers of the Divergent series. I understand that they are supposed to symbolize the factions or something from the story. To be honest I don’t really like the covers of the whole trilogy, especially book 2 and 3.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver 

This book cover doesn’t say anything about the story. Do you think about a dystopian world where loving other is a disease and illegal when you see these covers? No!

  1. I saw that they redid the covers for Lauren Oliver! I did the Divergent by Veronica Roth too on my list. Great minds thinks alike.


      1. There are times when I hate new covers but there are times when it’s needed! In this case, it’s needed. 🙂


      2. Good example, The Winner’s Kiss. They revealed the cover but it was not like first two AND it looks so much like Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series and now they’re releasing those covers as paperbacks.


      3. Yeah, fans protested the change so the publisher changed the cover to match the first two and will release the paperbacks with other cover that fan protested.
