The Espressologist Covers-Which Do You Like?

So I was searching through my list of ARCs I hope to grab at ALA for my Want it Wednesday post and I came across two covers for Kristina Springer's book, The Espressologist. Which one do you like better? I like the new one because it looks more teen and I would most definitely pick that cover up and look at it over the cartoony one. Although the first cover was kind of cute. When I asked my teens about the original cover, they said they didn't like it at all, so maybe it's a good thing they changed it.


Old Cover

New Cover




German Cover, which I also think is cute!

  1. I'm not too sure if I like either of the covers to be honest. But if I had to pick ... I guess I'd pick the new one.

  7. I can't STAND the new one. It looks like a dark read at first glance. I love the pink one, but I agree--it looks more adult-targeted. My favorite is most definitely the coffee-cup one, the first picture. It's perfect! And the German is also really adorable. Thanks for posting!

  9. I love the old cover because it has the best design. The vapor and slanted lid create a diagonal that leads the eye around. I hate the new cover. I'm tired of creepy girls staring at me from book covers.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
