Cover Changes

Hey guys it’s Meagan and today I’m here to talk about something we pretty much all hate… Cover Changes *cringe*

So I understand why publishers make cover changes; the original cover wasn’t selling well and they think that a new, flashier cover will attract new readers, but what they don’t realize is that this annoys the current fans because now the series won’t match on their shelf. A few examples of this are The Shatter Me series and the Across the Universe series. Fans have one or two books in one cover style, and then they have to buy the other books in a completely different cover style. I, luckily, came into both of these series after these cover changes happened so my shelf was not affected by them. But a series that has multiple editions of its cover that has affected my shelf is the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness. I originally had one of the lesser popular hardback covers for the first book and then I asked for the second and third book for Christmas without specifying which cover to buy. This caused by aunt to buy me the second and third books in paperback and in a different cover style. So, now my Chaos Walking books don’t match.

Those are some of my thoughts on cover changes; how do you feel about cover changes? Comment and let me know!
