Pat Shackleford All the books published by CruGuru


message 2: by Minglis (new)

Minglis i thought the host looked great


message 3: by Lydia (new)

Lydia I like the Tender Morsels cover... But I agree with most of the others.


message 4: by Leah (new)

Leah I don't understand why the Twilight books are so high up on the list? They're terrible books IMHO, however, I have no problem with the cover art. There are plenty of other examples on the list of cringe-worthy art that should be higher up...


message 5: by Michael (new)

Michael Economy Leah: I agree


message 6: by Michael (new)

Michael T Forgot "The Name of the Wind" hardcover.

There are plenty of other examples on the list of c..." Yes, while I hate the series, I find the cover art to be simplistic, and symbolic, and yet beautiful :D


message 8: by Mandi (new)

Mandi I like the Memoirs of a Geisha cover, but most of these covers are kind of stupid. Except the Twilight covers. The books suck, the cover images are kinda cool.


message 9: by Derya (new)

Derya 5 people voted for Memoirs of a Geisha?! Are you kidding? =) It does not belong here, at all.

Agreed


message 11: by Devon (new)

Devon This list is ridiculous! There is NOTHING wrong with Memoirs of a Geisha and a lot of other books on this list look good. This is all garbage.

I AGREE!


message 13: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Castillo I prefered the old cover for MoaG.
Love this list. Poor authors.


message 14: by Elle! (new)

Elle! LOL, this made me laugh, these books were awfully written.


message 15: by Bobby (new)

Bobby Luke All of the art in Wolves of The Calla by Stephen King didn't match the text. The artist, Bernie Wrightson, must not have ever even read the book. Either that or he is just really bad at attention to detail.


message 16: by Janna (new)

Janna How is Tender Morsels on here? I love that cover.


Erin (Paperbackstash) *Proud Book Hoarder* Im surprise a Sookie is up there, think their covers are adorable. Guess it's a matter of taste.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Anyone besides me decided to come on this list to vote then realized that they DO judge books by their cover and as such they HAVEN'T read anything on it?


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Heh, good point. I think in this case they're not judging the book by the cover, but the cover itself.
May a piano fall on some cover artists. Many of these covers are atrocious!


message 20: by Bobby (new)

Bobby Luke For me, it's not just about bad art - it's when art doesn't match the text....case in point, Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King. The artist painted one of the characters (known for her fiery red hair) with black hair. How can this happen?


message 21: by Joshua (new)

Joshua Adaptation has a bad ass cover. I don't normally read books based on the cover but I did with that book and it was awesome.
