Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Redesigns I Liked

44887330363359. sy475
1. The Queen's Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner
I like them because all my copies can look the same, and they're artistic and have plot Easter eggs hidden. :)

956554838640725. sy475
2. His Fair Assassin trilogy by Robin LaFevers
Although I still like the original covers, the redesigns are nice and fit with the new companion duology.

3. Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale
Such pretty colors that just update the feel of the original covers.

4. Anna and the French Kiss/Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
The originals were just too...basic YA.

5. The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
The metallics and colors are just so preeeetttyyy. (Although I miss the typography of the original covers.)

Redesigns I Disliked

1. Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee
All those pretty colors are gone from the paperback cover.

2. The Winner's Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski
I was there on Twitter during the redesign drama. It wasn't pretty.

3. The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
I'm really attached to the sunset-esque colors of the original. I do like the re-redesign, but I'm unsure if it truly fits the book. Still gonna buy it anyways, 'cause Emery Lord.

4. The Owlcrate edition of Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
I was super attached to the original green cover, y'all.

5. Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
The colors of the original were just so much more dynamic and eye-catching.

What's your opinion of these cover redesigns? Which cover redesigns in general are your favorites or least favorites?


  1. Great list! I didn't realize that the Out of the Easy cover that I have is a redesign. The original one is so nice! I think I love both Sorcery of Thorns designs haha I have the Owlcrate version and tbh the picture of it on GR is so bad 😒 but I do love the green one too. The Shadow and Bone cover made it onto my list as well, and I've heard so many people prefer the original but I looove the redesigned ones. They're so bright and pretty 😍
