I am going to show a few of the best book covers I have seen, and a few of the worst.
I'll start with the worst, just to get it out of the way.
(Although - apparently, this book is really good. I haven't read it yet, since it is book 9 in a series that I don't have time to read yet)
Okay- so this cover I feel just has too much going on. There is the castle with Fluffy, the snitch and Harry, a unicorn, and then the background. It is just way too busy, and it doesn't fit the facts in the books.
Harry wouldn't be wearing jeans, a sweater and a cloak to play Quidditch, we would be wearing his team robes.
Harry is also going miss the snitch at the angle he is at.
Why is Fluffy under the castle...? He is on the 3rd floor.
The unicorn should have a silver horn. Not gold. Quote from the book: "...Harry himself examined silver unicorn horns at twenty-one galleons each..." See? Not gold.
The cover doesn't make the book and worse though! Except that this one is the American version. So the misspellings (color instead of colour. Behavior instead of behaviour,) are irritating.
That's all I have for the bad book covers, because usually I like book covers.... onto the good ones!!
This book was AWESOME!
I think that that is how all book covers should be. Simple, and yet intriguing.
As for the actual book Matched, it wasn't my favourite, but it wasn't completely awful.
So what do you think? Any covers you like? Dislike?
