Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

Cover Crazy: Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

It took me a while to decide whether or not I liked the cover. At first it seemed very immature and looked like  it was targeted towards 12 year olds (which it probably is). After a while I really grew to like the cover and could appreciate it. 

I like:
  • The significance of the doll. A seems to control the girls and is definitely like a puppet master. Spencer, the girl on the cover, along with all the other girls are just dolls in the game A is playing.
  • The font. It is gorgeous and girly and pretty.
  • The tagline. "Never trust a pretty girl with an ugly secret". I love it!
I dislike:
  • The placement of the font. I don't know where I would put it but I found it quite difficult to read.
  • The placement of the tagline. It feels like it was just shoved there for the sake of it.

What do you think of the cover?


  1. I've been watching the TV show of this, so pondering reading the books too

  2. I will admit to loving the show. It is a guilty pleasure. It made me want to read the books. I would suggest giving them a go!

  3. I love these covers! I agree, they do look pretty immature, but (and this probably sounds immature!) I'm endlessly fascinated by looking at the dolls on the covers and then seeing how they compare to the real people on the back covers.

    I also love the font. It's so swirly and pretty.

  4. I completely agree! I keep flipping the book and seeing how alike the doll is to the person. The font is so swirly. I love swirls :)

  5. I agree that I didn't like these covers at first, but now that I am reading the book they make more sense to me. I also love the font.

  6. The font is so pretty. The covers definitely fit more than I first thought.

  7. I love the font! Not the Barbie doll! Not that i dislike them, just this one..there's something unfitting about the doll..:P

    here is my Cover pick for this week..

  8. Yeah I get what you mean. They are quite unusual looking.
