Many Covers Monday - Every Exquisite Thing

by - April 16, 2018

Didn’t you ever just simply want to…stop? 

Star athlete and straight-A student Nanette O’Hare has played the role of dutiful daughter for as long as she can remember. But one day, a beloved teacher gives her his worn copy of The Bubblegum Reaper—a mysterious, out-of-print cult classic—and the rebel within Nanette awakens. 

As the new and outspoken Nanette attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon, she befriends the reclusive author and falls in love with a young, troubled poet. Forced to make some hard choices that bring devastating consequences, Nanette learns the hard way that rebellion can sometimes come at a high price.

I get what they were going with for the US cover but instead of arty it just feels a little sloppy, I'm pretty sure with two biros and an envelope most of us could recreate this cover in five minutes. I really love the UK cover but the quote at the bottom feels like something you'd see in gym. However I've never been to a gym because I hear that they make you exercise?!

Confession: I saw this UK cover first and I genuinely thought that the book would be a fantasy story like Arabian Nights because quite frankly that turtle from a distance looks like a magic lamp to me. Look I'll show you:

 See, that's obviously a magic lamp.
The Italian cover I do really like as I'm a sucker for fonts but there are A LOT of fonts going on and my eyes aren't quite sure where to look.

I do actually love both of these covers, you can probably tell by my blog that I love watercolor this year. The second cover is probably my favourite of all of these, I love the Pop Art style - my blog look will be changing next year and I'm very tempted on overhauling it to a Pop Art look just like this.

Which cover is your favourite? Let me know in the comments!
