Chat About Covers: Vampire in Paradise

June 16, 2016 Chat About Covers 9



We’re starting a new feature here on Chapter Break called Chat About Covers. ‘Cause you know we all judge books by covers, whether we admit it or not. We judge the style, the color and font choices, and just the overall look. That might not keep us from reading the book, but we do still judge.


Vampire in Paradise: A Deadly Angels Book

What am I even looking at? Let’s list it out.

  • Hello, weird expression shirtless dude. I mean, nice chest, but maybe not look so much like you’re about to take a poop?
  • WTF is up with those ghostly wings? Are they wings? Smoke? Demon possessions? Oh wait, ANGEL possessions?
  • There are way too many fonts going on here. Sizes. Colors. Styles. Not jiving.
  • Finally, I’m sorry, that author quote? An awesome… series? Can any more be said about this or did all the good stuff get cut out? Like maybe the real quote was something like: an awesome {insanity of a} series.

First, I think the concept of this book is hilarious. He’s a vampire. AND an angel. A VANGEL. Plus, a Viking. Because why the heck not!

But on to the cover.

The floating wings are just bizarre. Especially how they sort of wrap around his arms and torso. Now I’m wondering if he has wings in the book? And why is his hair sticking out? Was that on purpose? Wind? It doesn’t look all that windy in the background! I find the blue and orange/coral colors of the title painful to read next to each other. Maybe the titles would be better at the top and bottom?  I do like the background. Without all the other stuff going on, it’s probably a photo I would enjoy.

    Kimber nailed it, lol! Not knowing this author means my eyes would have glanced over and not stopped on this one.

        Lynn, let’s ☀FIST BUMP☀ on that one!

        I looking at book covers period, so a weird one will turn me off the book very quickly if I don’t already know the author. I will however reluctantly still one-click a known author’s ugly book cover while protesting as I add it to my Kindle cloud collection, lol!

          I meant to add the verb in that first sentence, oops! As in, “I LOVE looking at book covers period.” I’m tired y’all. 😛
