Ten Book Cover Trends I Like/Dislike
I totally judge books by their covers, but it's hard for me to notice trends unless they smack me in the face, such as the girl in gown craze. But here are my top five likes and dislikes.
Clean and uncluttered. A like the trend of just having a single image to focus on, be it a real object or a graphic.
Illustrated covers. This trend is really becoming huge, and I'm sure I'll get sick of it. Right now however, I am putting it on my like list.
An interesting font. A script or something different will usually catch my eye, and I like that there have been so many covers that feature a non typical font.
Word Bubbles. Something about a word bubble grabs me and makes me want to read the book. It's a lot like the illustrated covers.
A Big Title. I tend to like the trend of the title of the book filling out the entire cover.
