Hello fellow Book Lovers! It’s time for another Crappy Cover post! I hope you guys are ready to cringe and laugh profusely. Now, let’s begin!
Angry House by Alexis Kennedy (February 1st, 2018) Genres: Horror and Ghost Fiction Pages: 244 Brief Summary: A widowed writer moves to the countryside to an old White House. The house holds a terrible secret, and the writer must learn this the hard way.
I really like the premise of this book, but the cover is complete trash. It depicts a shadowy figure that closely resembles death. There’s also a horrible Jpeg of flames that surround the title of the book. In conclusion the cover gives missed potential to an otherwise fascinating story.
Blood of Our Fathers by Sonny Girard (July 28th, 2010) Genres: Crime Thriller, Crime Fiction, Literary Fiction 592 Pages Quick Summary: A reformed mafia member tries to restart his fractured life.
Another wonderful concept for a book completely destroyed by an absolutely shitty cover. The art looks like it was done in about 5 minutes, and it smells very amateurish. It’s just a picture of a gun with a couple of bullet holes surrounding it.
Hello fellow Book Lovers! It’s time for some more crappy covers. I hope you guys are ready to cringe and laugh! Now, let’s begin!
Griddle Creek: Fool’s Gold (Book 2) by M. Malenga Released: October 12th, 2017 Genres: Children’s Humor, Comic Book Pages: 32 Quick Summary: A typical museum heist story with quirky humor.
I know this is supposed to be a kid’s book, but this art is completely unacceptable! It seems like the artist just searched on Google Images for a picture of a diamond, and placed it on a black and grey background. If you are going to create a comic book, at least make the front cover appealing.
Facemate by Steven M. Greenberg Released: July 10th, 2019 Genre: Fiction Quick Summary: An Autistic boy discovers a futuristic dating site, and acquires unimaginable power. 386 pages
What we have here is missed potential. The plot of this book seems really neat, and is definitely a unique concept. Unfortunately, the front cover makes it fall flat on its face. What we have is 4 “people” that are 3D nightmares. The graphics are extremely unsettling, and seem to delve into the “Uncanny Valley”.
Hello fellow Pokemon Trainers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crazy entries. Now, let’s begin!

Entry: It fights using a combo of its arms and tail to confuse enemies. It lacks stamina for a drawn-out battle.
Hello fellow book lovers! It’s time for another humorous art post. Today, we will be looking at some more bad covers. Now, let’s take a dive into the bizarre world of hilarious cringe.
Angela’s Arm by Roland Allnach Release Date: October 30th, 2018 Genres: Horror and Suspense 204 Pages Small Summary: A tale about a girl with a serpent for an arm.
Ok, I actually kind of love this cover because it reminds me of one of my favorite Anime. Unfortunately, it isn’t perfect, and I can see a lot of room for improvement. First of all, the hand has six fingers, which means that the owner isn’t human. Second, the book’s title is written in the standard “blood red” text to emphasize that it’s scary and edgy. Lastly, the background looks photoshopped.
Civil War II: The Battle for the Future of America by E. Robert Gurr Release Date: May 3rd, 2019 295 Pages Genres: Political Thriller and Suspense Short Summary: A war pits a teacher and a hacker against each other.
This cover is the epitome of boring and wasted potential. It’s just text on a white background. It tells nothing of what happens in the book, and looks like it was pieced together in about five minutes. Also, we gotta be edgy, so there’s more of that laughable “blood red” text.
