Top Ten Tuesday: Cover Redesigns

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s TTT is all about cover redesigns we’ve either loved or hated. I figured the best way to go about this topic is to split it into five and talk about both.
