I’m so excited that Melissa at i swim for oceans likes discussion posts because sometimes I get chatty and have things to say. Melissa has opened her Let’s Talk event up to the rest of us and I’m excited to be a part of it. Thanks, Melissa!
covers better than their content
and vice versa?
It’s really hard for me to choose only a few.
Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t.
Sometimes I’m shocked at how well it works
and sometimes I’m just, well, disappointed.
The first time I saw it, I KNEW I had to read it…
even without knowing the synopsis.
Then reading the summary I thought I’d like it.
surpasses everything about the book. The book kinda lost control in the last one-third. (I seem to be in the minority in this thinking, and I’m okay with that.) I WILL say, though, that the cover is completely cohesive to the book, which is what I want to see in YA cover art. It’s just beautiful and striking and stunning…
but they don’t have great covers either.
What’s worse is that their covers do not in any way
begin to represent the stories on the inside.
There’s a depth and relevance to Everybody Sees The Ants
that is so important. But all I see when I look at the cover is a Scarface poster.
The cover makes sense to the story, but it just
isn’t as good as what is on the inside.
For a dystopian or apocalyptic or whatever,
a girl in a pretty dress? Honestly?
But, um, it just doesn’t work FOR ME.
However…the story is brilliant in every way.
didn’t represent the stories inside very well…
