Cover Trends (14)

COVER TRENDS


Cover Trends is a feature here at Braintasia Books where I discuss aspects of book covers that I've seen recently that seem to be popping up in a lot of books. Sometimes they're good, sometimes they aren't, but they're all getting quite common. These book covers tend to only represent YA, UF, and PNR since those are the genres I read, and as such, the covers I see.

This week's trend is HISTORICAL SETTIGNS. This trend is pretty awesome, and I love how, unlike most, it actually relates to the book's content, because why on earth would you put a girl in a late 18th century dress on a cover of a book about a skateboarding 21st century tomboy? So, this is one of my favorite trends, despite some of the more questionable covers.
