2014:The Ugly

My favorite part of year-end posts! When I get to look back over the books I’ve read and decide which ones had the ugliest covers!

Mom Ladd helped me with this post. She wasn’t biased by the book’s contents, so she helped me pick out the most blah covers.

A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl by Tanya Lee Stone

A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl by Tanya Lee Stone

This isn’t bad in itself, just inappropriate for the mostly serious book.

An Exaltation of Larks by Robert Reed

An Exaltation of Larks by Robert Reed

This is a bizarre sci-fi story set in the modern day/the future. I don’t know what’s going on here.

More Than This by Patrick Ness

More Than This by Patrick Ness

Another sci-fi story about alternate realities that could have tried harder.

The Color Purple by Alice Walker

The Color Purple by Alice Walker

This book clearly needs more purple. What were you thinking??

YOLO by Lauren Myracle

YOLO by Lauren Myracle

Now this is the kind of purple I’m talking about! But my mom pointed out, rightly, that other than good color choice it is just sort of meh.

The Book of Awesome

The Book of Awesome

Mom Ladd declared this nowhere near awesome enough.

A Short History of Myth by Karen Armstrong

A Short History of Myth by Karen Armstrong

This one tried, but I feel like it has the potential to look way cooler.

Clearly I need Mom Ladd assistance on more blog posts.
