This line of thinking brought up the question: are there any movie tie-in covers that I actually like? I couldn't think of any off the top of my head, so I had to do a bit of digging. I did in fact find a few that weren't a pain to look at, but up until this point I haven't found any that are better than the original.
- The Fault In Our Stars: I've never watched the movie, and while the original cover looks far neater than this one, compared to other movie tie-ins this one is alright.
- If I Stay: Out of all of these, this one is probably my favorite. It doesn't involve awkward photography and looks pretty natural.
- The Perks of Being a Wallpaper: Emma Watson. That is all.
- The Book Thief: I'm a bit biased because I really liked the movie adaptation, but I think this cover is cute, even if it's just a close-up of Liesel's face.
- The DUFF: For some reason the color scheme of this one is appealing to me, but I'm not the biggest fan of their awkward stances.
- The Lightning Thief: The bolt of lighting looks cool to me, ok? Also, Logan Lerman is great.
What do you guys think? Do you have any movie tie-in covers that you like or even absolutely abhor?
