"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


John Green Week: The Pretty Covers

There is ONE MORE DAY until The Fault in Our Stars comes out! (Of course, some of my friends in Europe already got their grubby hands on it :shakes fist:...just kidding!)

Today, I thought it would be fun to look at all the very pretty covers of John's books!

Looking for Alaska

(Hardcover)                                                (Paperback)

An Abundance of Katherines

(Hardcover)                                                (Paperback)

Paper Towns

The Fault in Our Stars

What I really love about each of these covers (which are all the American covers, either hardcover or paperback) is that they are really thoughtful and gorgeous.  I think each are really long lasting, even with the ones with pictures of girls.  

But my absolute favorites are the ones which rely more on symbols/text.  I've always thought the hardcover of An Abundance of Katherines was so perfect.  It is striking with the mix of math symbols used within the title.  I also really, really love the paperback cover of Paper Towns.  The big red push pin is very eye-catching while still being so appropriate for the story.

Of course my new favorite it The Fault in Our Stars.  When it was very first released, it was much less polished.  I felt the text chosen was very simple, and the quote from Jodi Picoult was just across the top.  I love the design that was settled on, and I think the text and overall design is very arresting.  Definitely the best desgin that could have been done with the subject matter at hand!

What do you think of the covers?
