So I was thinking about movie tie-in covers the other day as I was reading Annihilation. This is one of the few books where I may like the movie cover better- and I know a lot of bloggers generally are not fans of movie tie-in covers, judging from past comments I've seen. But sometimes the movie version isn't bad! In this case I (narrowly) prefer the version above- the other cover of Annihilation is just a little too bland for me. In fact I wouldn't have known it was science fiction necessarily from the old cover- I mean it's got a plant and a dragonfly on it! Now looking closer, sure the plant looks rather menacing, but my point is that cover never really enticed me to pick that book up.
In fact the only reason I read Annihilation was because a) the movie, and b) a blogger recommended it. But my bigger question is- what do you think? Movie tie-in covers- yea or nay? Or does it just depend on the book? I think for me I generally hate tie-in covers, but Annihilation is a case where maybe I make an exception. :)
Below are a bunch of tie-ins. Let me know which you like- and any that I missed!
