I want to make this extremely clear: I’M NOT MAKING A STATEMENT ABOUT HOW GOOD OR BAD ANY OF THESE BOOKS ARE, just how I feel about the covers.
So what do I love in a cover? I love abstract covers. Nature. Art. And as weird as it seems—Torsos.
What do I dislike? Full on faces. I hate it when the cover dictates what the main character looks like. I want to imagine it for myself. I will actually pass on a book if there is a face on the cover.
Here is an example. I LOVE Pendragon. The Pilgrims of Rayne is a great book. But which cover do you like better?
Maybe I'm crazy? Am I the only one who hates faces, because over 50% of the books have them. Opinions?
