Hey guys, it’s Jamari here from ReadGeekx3 with another post. This is a different post from anyone that I’ve done before. In this post I will be doing a small segment called “Judging a Book by it’s Cover” where I will take a few book covers and judge them by their cover.
I know how when people say “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” but really, we judge it anyways. And judging actually helps us know what books we actually want to read. Let me explain with our first book cover.
Divergent By Veronica Roth
From the looks of this cover, it looks like it’s going to be a great book. The first thing that catches your eye is the Dauntless Symbol in the top middle of the cover and then scroll down to the title and then the background of Chicago. Divergent is one of my favorite books of all time and with a great book, it has to have a great cover that matches the feel for the book. Imagine this, would you rather buy a book with this cover or one that looks like this one below:
Yeah, you probably wouldn’t be able to get past the cover. Not saying that I don’t read books with bad covers, but to show you how the cover of a book effects a customer’s view on the book.
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
From the looks of the cover, it looks like a book that may deal with some sort of romance in it. Though, from the rest of the cover you cans see that there is more that will be going on in the book besides romance.
Generally, I don’t read books that have actual people on the covers but with these covers, they are well edited and the cover artists have obviously taken a lot of time and work into making these great looking book covers.
Now I’m going to judge one more book, but this time a book that I haven’t read.
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Grey
Okay, from the looks of the cover, it looks like it might be a great book. Honestly, I think it looks so good that I could just read it with out even knowing what the plot is itself. Whoever the artist for this cover is, they really put a lot of work into designing this book cover!
Now this is the end of the segment “Judging A Book By It’s Cover”. I’m sure I might do another post following this segment sometime soon. Check for more posts until then!
