Hello there unsuspected reader and welcome to cover wars the place where covers try their best to get your attention and for you to pick them as the rightful wearer of the book they represent. But before this week’s contestants come out to do their catwalk let’s take a moment to see the winner of last week’s cover wars, so step right up if you want to see the winner for this dystopian better known as Crewel by Gennifer Albin.
And Cover Make-Over gets the crown!
Now that this cover has had it’s time to shine let’s get into this week’s covers, first of all the book making the covers jump for your attention is The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, now in case the book and the movie went all ninja on you and this is your first time hearing about it here is the book blurb:
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school... again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus' master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.
Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus' stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
Now that we are all in the same page, more or less, we better get started with the covers because let me tell you boys and girls this book has had a lot of faces to show.
Ok, so it was kind of hard to decide with which one to start, but let’s see first the one that was once used as an audio book cover, the one that isn’t afraid to show the mythological monsters that come bumping out.
Next up is the cover of gold, purple and flying shows that tries to intrigue the potential reader with this twist in a well known mythological figure.
After the really cool sneakers we have the first glance at Percy and a cover that shows a little bit more of “book skin” by which I mean it tells you more about the story then the other covers have so far.
It seems that one of the mythological creatures didn’t get enough attention of it’s first appearance that it hunted down the person in charge of the cover art and made this person give him the main stage in this cover.
Bear with me guys we are almost, this next cover is more attached to the movie, the one released in 2010 hitting people from the big screen with a taste of what book lovers already knew was a good story, here we have the charged up cover.
And finally the cover some of you were waiting for the most known cover, the one you are most likely to find in a book store near you or maybe it’s already siting in your bookshelf!
Well now I think we stumbled upon a large amount of cover to a degree that we could call The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan a book with multiple covers disorder. So which of this covers where you most surprised about? Which one did you like the most? Have you had seen all of this covers or where there some new ones for you?
