Cover Trends (16)

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 PDA. Yup, public displays of affection. I can go either way with this one, because sometimes they're cute, other times they're weird, and still other times, they're just completely over-the-top. So, yeah, if done right I really like this one, but if done wrong, I really dislike it, so I consider this one of the riskier trends because when you fail, you fail bad.
