Tell Me Something Tuesday


Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings where we discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog.

Question of the Week:

Does it bother you when a book cover doesn't fit the characters in the book?

Yes! Yes, yes it does. Especially when the story says something like "she had wild, frizzy hair she was unable to tame," then on the cover her hair is straight as heck. 
OR 
When the main character is in a frilly dress and never wears one in the story. 

Small stuff like that peeves me.

  1. I feel like hair color and type are the most common. I read a book where the MC had like dirty blond hair in the book and looked liked Merida on the cover.

  2. I agree. When the author describes the character, I expect the cover to match. And then there were all those white-washed covers. Just wrong.

  3. Peeve is a good way to word it lol

    I hate when the cover is very specific - like a dress and she never wears a dress or hair color but I read so many books on my Kindle now that I barely notice covers anymore. To the point where I forget what I've read lol
