Peeler’s Book Getting the Full Makeover

There’s always books out there that I feel should get makeovers. Great books that are stuck with horrid covers that make me feel guilty for reading the books.

Then a great series with great covers get a new look and I think, “Really it was fine before?”


Nicole Peeler’s Jane True series has always had covers that fascinate me. The art is so different compared to all the other covers out there, and I actually love the artist behind them. 

And this is not the first time I noticed that the makeover was happening, I just thought it was a small change, but it looks like the first book is really got a make over.

Old: New:

Clearly the biggest difference of all of them. I like the close up of the girls face, but it just doesn’t go with the feel of the other re-prints.

Personally I’m a bigger fan of the old covers, they just go with the art more. I love the funky borders and they feel more open then the solid colors. It just makes me sad that Tempest’s Legacy loses all that beautiful green.

Then after looking at the new reprints I noticed some other paperback covers. It didn’t state clearly whether they were the UK versions or not, but I’m going to assume they are. While I’d weep if the books started being published that way here, they’re pretty cool in there own way.

Booo... I completely agree with you. Those new covers are not nearly as awesome the old ones!

Good to see I'm not the only one who thinks the old look is better.
