Ugly Covers Competition – The Finals
October 13, 2011 24 Comments
It’s the final week of the Ugly Covers Competition! Did you enjoy last week’s covers? If this is the first you hear about it, you are very welcome to join in the fun!
This week we’re chosing the ugliest of the ugly covers. For six weeks I’ve shown you 6 ugly covers each week. The winners of each week are now going to fight it out – which cover is the ultimate ugly cover?
There’s a book to be won: all people that chose the final winning cover during the past 6 weeks will be entered in a draw for a book prize – you can win any book of your choice, but preferably one that was featured (you can choose a different cover if available!).
I’ll first give you the results of last week. Then, the pictures of the 6 winners. Choose the most ugly one!
Last week: The results!

Further information about the books
Week 1 – Hers by A. Alvarez. Submitted by Cindy of The Only Cin. She never finished the book.
Week 2 – Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse. Sent in by Anna of Anna’s Leesreis. She says: “This cover (wrongly) suggests soft-porn and it’s very ugly.”
Week 3 – Crazy in Love by La Tonya West. Sent in by Lena of Lena Sledge’s Blog. She says: “I was sent a link to buy Crazy in Love by La Tonya West on Amazon once and I gave it the side eye. Although I was told it was a really good book despite the cover.”
Week 4 – My Sister, My Love by Joyce Carol Oates. Sent in by Lu of Lu’s Raves and Rants. She says: “I have not read it. A friend of mine passed it on to me, and said it was good.”
Week 5 – Abarat by Clive Barker. Sent in by Her Royal Orangeness of Only Orangery. She didn’t read it.
Week 6 – The Human Race by O. C. Heaton. Sent in by Leeswammes (me!).
Next week (on Thursday) I’ll announce the winning book and the winner of a book of their choice out of the participants that correctly predicted (in the first 6 weeks) which book was the most ugly.
Also next week: another giveaway! The author of one of the 6 winning books has kindly offered to provide copies of his ugly book as well as a Kindle edition with a new cover. This is world-wide for both the printed and Kindle editions.
So do check back next week for the ugliest of ugly covers and for a new giveaway!
Do fill out the form! Anyone can enter!
Psst! Is there a cover here that you secretly like?
