Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Hunger Games

This is my weekly post where I choose to appreciate a book for its cover art or overall design – to me, a well-designed book is like a piece of art. We all judge book covers to some extent. Personally, it’s usually a title/cover combination that pulls me in when I’m browsing in a bookstore. I can’t say that I’ve ever decided against a book with terrible cover art if I liked the sound of the plot, but I have purchased special editions of books or multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers (looking at you, Penguin!) wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!

I couldn’t resist this simple but beautiful set of the Hunger Games trilogy, though I already own each book in hardcover (I’m not even finished, I desperately want the Australian Deluxe Editions). It’s by Scholastic, released in 2013. With the first Mockingjay movie coming out soon (November, right!?) I’ve been thinking about this series a lot lately, and I’d love to re-read these beauties.
