Top 5 Sundays

Top 5 Sundays is a weekly blog meme created by Larissa at Larissa's Bookish Life.

Here's a little info about the meme taken from Larissa's blog:

Every Sunday I will post a TOP 5 list on the blog. It can be about anything and every week I'll have a new theme {You can vote on next week’s theme on my left sidebar!} and I will ad the Mr.Linky bellow the post so you can do a list with the theme and add you link to it.

1 - Write a post listing your TOP 5 choices within the theme I chose (or was chosen on a poll) for the week.
2 - Mention this Blog on the post and link back to it.
3 - Fell free to use the Feature's image (there is a smaller size version of it bellow)
4 - After you've finished your post, add you link (of the post, not your blog's main page) to the Mr.Linky at the end of that week's post.
5 – If you don’t have a blog to post, just leave your list in the comments =)


Okay this one's a little hard for me because I really don't have covers that I hate. In fact I pretty much like the covers that I see. So these 5 are just ones that aren't in my immediate faves, because like Larissa said on her post, I don't want to be mean either. And of course just because I don't like the cover doesn't mean the book itself isn't great!


Siren Song by Cat Adams--This is a hard one because I do like the cover, but the actual book has the colors way too dark. You can hardly see Celia at all. But the cover itself isn't bad!


City of Souls by Vicki Petterson--the cover look just seemed to change drastically, especially the model. I liked the sparkles but the look and feel itself just didn't look like the previous ones.

The Devil's Playground by Jenna Black--again the cover scheme just seemed to change again. I know there was another cover option planned and that one was totally off base as well. This one just felt like a different book almost. But still a GREAT read!


Witch Craft by Caitlin Kittredge--I don't know what bothers me here. I guess it looks too much like Luna is in her underwear and lounging about instead of kicking butt like a urban fantasy heroine should be doing or something.


Taken by the Others by Jess Haines--I finished her first book just last month or so and enjoyed it. I loved the cover for her first book, but now this one? Totally different. It is way too early to be going with a new cover scheme. I mean first there was a real photo of a woman now there's an animation. I just don't like that the scheme changed.

Once again, I just want to say that just because I didn't like these covers doesn't make them bad books. In fact all, with the exception of Taken by the Others, are on my shelves having been read and thoroughly enjoyed. Taken by the Others isn't out yet so that's why I haven't loved it yet! But again, this is just my opinion. I didn't care for the covers but the stories themselves were amazing!


  1. I think you made valid points on all the covers and to be quite frank agree with you on all of them, the books are probably good but the covers are not really as desirable as the ones before them in each of the series they are part of!

    I rarely worry about covers though, just like to read too much for it to really matter once they go in the shelf only see the spine anyway!
