Trending Thursday: Rain(bow) Drops and Torn Paper


Hey, welcome (back) to Trending Thursday. I haven't been trend-watching much lately, but I've noticed a few things and decided to share.

I was making my Hot Off the Presses post for this week and noticed this:

Two covers of books releasing the same day featuring a cut/torn paper effect. Interesting! And maybe inspired by these popular book, but maybe not...

THANKS to Joy from Joyous Reads for helping me remember where else I'd seen the torn paper cover before --on the Goldfinch, which is on my kindle and therefore kind of coverless. xoxo!

Another trend I'm noticing is rain(bow) drops. At least three recent releases have featured this trend:

Thoughts? I actually love all these covers, though I think the two rainbow drops are too similar.

  1. Ohh it's been a while since I've read one of these posts from you, Jen. I'm definitely seeing this trend. Goldfinch by Donna Tartt is another one with a torn page cover. I love this particular trend because it speaks of the layers we need to peel back to see the essence of what we're reading.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I had only seen Nemesis for the torn covers but at least they're all different in some way. Lordy! Those teardrop covers are way too similar.

    This is why I forget what I've read and probably end up missing books lol

  4. Omg Phantom Limbs and First & Then confused me SO MUCH. I thought they were the same book for the longest time!! 😂 I like them but I think they could be a little more different haha.

    1. I think we all see so many books that it's easy to be confused!

  5. I like the drops, especially the rainbow colour ones, so cute! But agree, the two do look awfully similar!

  7. Hmm, interesting about the cut paper effect- and the raindrops too. Those last three covers are all rather similar in a lot of ways.

  8. I never noticed the paper tear effect. I am kind of neutral on it. I LOVE the last three covers though.

  9. I hate when they make book covers too similar to other books. I get CONFUSED. I am forever thinking that Phantom Limbs is First & Then even though the colors are different :( That torn paper trend is kind of MEH.
