Okay, we’ve all been there. We’re minding our own business. And one day, one of our favourite authors announces that their well-loved series is getting a cover change. While cover changes are the norm in the publishing industry, most readers hate when the publisher does it mid-series.
So I’m not surprised when the book community exploded this Tuesday when international bestselling author Sarah J. Maas announced Bloomsbury is doing a cover change for her Court of Thorns and Roses series. Take a look below.
Now this change is quite different from the original covers. And frankly, I’m salty over it. Why? As a reader and blogger, I hate mid-series cover changes, period. So I break down the reasons why below. And I forewarn you that my hate may flow through my writing.
