Let's Talk is a pseudo-regular feature here at i swim for oceans where we create an open forum for all bloggers to discuss issues not only pertinent to the blogging world, but to simply weigh in on the little things. In this case, it's book covers.
You all know that I'm a cover slut. Truly. I pick a book with my eyes before ever reading a single sentence. It's petty, I know, but I'm sure I'm not the only one out there that does this.
I was looking at my shelves the past few days, and I noticed a lot of really interesting (and odd) trends going on in the young adult market. The most prominent one was a phenomenon I now refer to as simply:
"The Year(s) of the Girls in Dresses"
You all ready for this?
Now, don't get me wrong, I love the vast majority of these books. I also happen to think they're hella pretty. A lot of these covers don't need girls in dresses though (yes, Paranormalcy is relevant, I know), but otherwise...I'm perplexed. Love the eye-catching visuals though!
What other cover trends have you seen lately, and what do you wish you could see more of?
