50/50 Friday - Favorite/Least Favorite Cover Trend

This meme is hosted by myself and the wonderful Laura from Blue Eye Books.

What is 50/50 Friday? 
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read.

Topic for the Week
Favorite/Least Favorite Cover Trend

So this will probably be an unpopular opinion but I'm usually that weird one that is different from what is popular. Story of my life. So here we go!

Least Favorite


I just don't get it. I've never found a book with this trend to be pretty or stunning. I actually don't even own a book with this trend that I know of. Just not my thing. If you like it though, that's cool. We each like what we like and there is nothing wrong with that at all.


Girls in flowing, fancy dresses

I know a lot of people are sick of this or they just never liked it but it just draws my eyes so much. Also I think it lends to the fact that if I could afford it, I'd dress in a fancy black gothic dress every freaking day. I'm not even kidding. 

Topic for Next Week
Favorite/Least Favorite Series Cover Set


  1. Haha! I listed silhouettes as among my favorites. I think I like them because they leave something to the imagination--the details of a face or what have you. And that's why I can't stand movie tie-in covers. The flowing dresses can be really pretty, I agree.

    Thanks for sharing and hosting, Carrie! I hope you have a great weekend.

    1. I hate movie tie in covers, there is only one I have ever liked and the rest.. ugh no! Even if I love the movie, I don't want them.

      Thank you and I hope your weekend was good as well!

  2. Love your choices for book cover trends!

  3. I listed both of these as least favorites... Oh well!

    1. To each their own! That's why there are so many different book covers out there. Not everyone will have the same taste!

  4. Silhouettes don't really bother me..... but I definitely also love beautiful, fancy dresses on covers! I was going to pick that but decided to go with something else since you already covered it

    1. Nothing wrong with that lol there are lots of cover trends that I'm just indifferent too. Yes! Beautiful fancy dresses are just feasts for my eyes lol

  5. Yes!! Fancy dresses for the win!! I just love looking at those kinds of covers because they're all so gorgeous :)
