Captioning Book Covers

June 3rd, 2012 by

Just a few days ago, the cover for the third Heroes of Olympus book (The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan) was released… and it is absolutely beautiful! Instead of (over)analyzing the book cover illustration by John Rocco like I usually do, I thought I’d take another approach…

Then I got inspired to give some other covers the same treatment!

What other giggle-worthy book cover captions can you think of?

Nancy is really, really, REALLY excited for Mark of Athena to be released in October. Especially if it does involve horse-on-horse sneezing.

    I nearly cried. I am a teenager and I love all of the books above. None of these are funny, and I understand that these were made to poke fun at the covers, but it’s stupid and useless and angering. If you are so excited for the books to come out then why the heck would you poke fun at it? MoA’s cover is my least favorite of the series, but at least its a decent cover, and there are some pretty stupid covers out there, kid books or not. I know it sounds like I’m over reacting, and I am slightly, but it just annoys the crap out of me to see someone who enjoys a book poke fun at the cover and post it for all to see.

      We’re sorry to hear that our post upset you! You’re right, there are some bad book covers out there, but we don’t mean to imply that these fall into that category.
      We love all these books and we’re not suggesting that any of these covers are bad; as we mentioned, we think the cover for Mark of Athena is beautiful!

    On the cover for The Sight his name isn’t Larry, they are Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather (the blind one). I’m Warriors biggest fan. ❤
