This weeks theme: A cover featuring something from Greek mythology.
My Choice: The Sea of Monsters
Not gonna lie this was a tough one for me to find a cover for. At first I couldn’t think of anything except Hermes and his winged shoes, but I couldn’t think of a book that I have read that would have a picture of him. (I know it doesn’t have to be a book I have read but I like it to be) Next I thought of “cheating” a bit and just using a cover with a sword, but that felt like a cop out. After that I came up with “An Ember in The Ashes” which has a Greek Vibe or “The Odyssey” which is Greek but I have used both of those covers already. My next thought was Hercules but google told me he was Roman. Finally I remembered Percy Jackson was the son of Poseidon and Poseidon is Greek! So those covers have to count! I chose the second book because it has a cyclops which is cooler than just some lightning.
This is hands down the winner for me. My favorite three covers are the first, second and sixth. The rest don’t have monsters which I think is a waste (tho I do like the blues and greens) I like this one best because the monster is HUGE but kind of hidden as well. I like that the kids are silhouetted so you can still use your imagination on what they look like. Finally I like the ship on this cover way better than on the second cover.
