Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish blog. This week’s theme is Ten Book Cover Trends (or just elements of covers) I Like/Dislike. I’m going to twist this to just the top ten Young Adult book cover trends I have been seeing a lot of lately. I have focused mainly on cover trends that I dislike, counting down to my least favorite. However, I tend to dislike any “trends” favoring the unique, more unusual cover designs (as you can see in last week’s Top Ten Tuesday I did on my favorite covers), and I do not dislike most of these covers at all, even if they follow popular trends (in fact, I love the covers of House of Ivy & Sorrow, The Winner’s Curse, Ignite Me, and many more on this list). Also, note that I do not judge books by their covers, although I do think covers will tell you a lot about the style of the book, and I love all the books in this list that I have read (although many I have not).

2. Looks Nothing like Character Description
(Since when does Celaena have white hair? Isn’t Aza supposed to be hideously ugly? For some reason I didn’t picture that when Elisa was described again and again as being overweight.)
