Whenever a book is adapted to the screen, the first thing we notice is the new book cover. From Twilight to The Handmaid’s Tale, we’ve all experienced walking into a bookstore and seeing the covers changed. It’s exciting to see the new cover and a little sticker indicating that an adaptation is coming, but sometimes they’re not great.
I must admit: I don’t mind when a book cover has been changed to suit the adaptation. Of course, if the cover was originally beautiful and is replaced by a terrible movie poster, I’m livid. Who wants to carry around an ugly photo of some popular celebrities? But every once in a while, the adaptation covers aren’t terrible.
Here are 10 tie-in book covers that really aren’t that bad.
1) Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
2) The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
3) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
4) The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
5) Me Before You by JoJo Moyes
6) Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
7) Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
8) The BFG by Roald Dahl
9) The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
10) Room by Emma Donoghue
