Book Cover or Movie Poster?

Posted: July 29, 2017 in Uncategorized

Strolling through the Greeting and Reading store in the Baltimore area, I noticed a trend in book covers. Many of them featured a hero – young enough to be a teen, serious enough to be an adult – in the middle of some apocalyptic wasteland or fantasy world.


I’m not the first person to notice all the dystopian fiction in YA lately, but what struck me was how many of these book covers were miniature movie posters.

I guess that’s a good thing. They’re both designed to do the same thing: get you interested in the story. But I almost expected “From the Producers of The Maze Runner” to be at the top.
