Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
The Top Ten Covers I Wish I Could Redesign
Circle of Silence by Carol M. Tanzman. Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr. Many Waters by Madeleine L'Engle. Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles. Fathomless by Jackson Pearce. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt. Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson. Need by Carrie Jones. Dark Song by Gail Giles.
For the record, I'm not a designer. I try my hand at it occasionally, but let's be honest. I'm never going to be a designer, and any sad attempts I did feign would probably fall remarkably short. All that aside, however, there are some covers that just don't work for me - whether aesthetically, or simply in context of the novel. Others, well, they had amazing predecessors and then simply settled for ordinary (cough…Return to Paradise and Fathomless). And, for the record, I've always thought the girl on the first Vampire Academy book was Angelina Jolie. I'm jussayin'.
