Each week, following a predetermined theme, click here to see the list of themes for 2019, choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favorite.
I really wanted to give this meme a try. If I like it, I might do it more. 😊
This week’s theme:
“I wandered lonely as a cloud…” – William Wordsworth
– A cover that is predominantly yellow –
My book choice:
I think these covers both exemplify important aspects of the book, which is the main purpose of book covers. They evoke the feeling or important elements of the book. These two definitely have it going on.
Honestly, I just don’t like it when movie covers are used. I also don’t like character faces depicted on covers, either. I want to imagine the characters for myself first!
I’m going with the classic, here! I think this cover, while overwhelmingly too yellow, has a better depiction of the feeling of the story, the setting, and it’s also a bit mysterious. I like it the best out of all the editions.
Thoughts & Thanks
