But first, who is my teen group? Named T-Cubed (The Think Tank) by me, my teen group consists of a group of 5 to 15 teens (it varies a lot), all between the ages of 13 and 18, mostly girls, and all in honors programs at my local high schools. They are voracious readers, and some of them what to be writers as well.
I asked my teen group the following question:
How important are book covers to you when deciding what books to buy, and what are some of your favorite covers?
Overwhelmingly, my group said that book covers were very important in getting them to check out the book. They did NOT cite covers as a reason for buying, but it is a major determiner of whether or not my teens look at the book in the first place.
As to the second part of the question - here are some of the book covers they really like:
The theme I see....blue works! LOL!
What are some of YOUR favorite colors? Do you have any questions for T-cubed? Leave them in the comments or drop me an email.
