Book Rant: Cover Changes

post-it-notes-and-pins-fd984

I’m sure you have seen many people complain about this issue, and now you get to see me complain about cover changes,as well, and why I loathe them.

I sort of understand why they would change a cover. I  think it’s because we are human, most of us judge things by the way they look and that is no exception with books. So I feel like when they change a cover, they do that so it would appeal to a wider audience than the first one and make it more likely that a person would pick it up just by looking at it, which happens a lot of times.

Mindless of that, I find Cover Changes to be my biggest book pet peeve. Of course it’s the context that matters, I am usually not one to judge a book by it’s cover but I hate it when books in a series don’t match. It just bugs me.  What annoys me even more is when they release the updated cover in paperback for the first book but fail to print it in hardback and then I’m stuck with books that look like they don’t belong together.

This was quite a short post but I hope you enjoyed it.

P.S. I don’t mean to be all negative, I just thought it would be fun to share my biggest book pet peeve. Comment down below and tell me yours. Like, Share and Follow me. If you like. Thank you.
