Movie-tie in covers aren’t exactly my thing. I’m far from a movie buff. This year I’ve probably been to the cinema only once; twice at most. Yes, I did watch Insurgent and Paper Towns but only because no other movies caught my interest on my long haul flight back home from Europe. Needless to say, I don’t own any books with movie tie-in covers. The closes to it is my copy of Divergent which has an ugly sticker on it announcing the movie. Those stickers are exceedingly annoying and spoil good cover designs.
When I sat down to think about book covers based on their movie adaptions, the most memorable one that came to mind was If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I love the white framing with the photographic snippets. This is the one movie tie-in cover I was tempted to get. In the end I didn’t though because I already own a German edition of the book, which I have yet to read. In case you’re wondering, no, I’ve not seen the movie either. I will after I read the book.
How do you feel about movie tie-in covers? What’re some of your favourites?
