Twilighting the Classics

I know the Twilight-style rejacketed Wuthering Heights has been around a while but I hadn't seen these two more recent covers of Jane Eyre and Tess of the Durbervilles until today (in Tesco's Dark Romance section with BOGOF offer):


  1. I don't like any of those, to be honest. The Jane Eyre one looks like it's a horror book!

  2. I like the Wuthering Heights one, in fact I bought it last year. The only thing I didn't like was what I thought was a sticker saying 'Bella and Edwards favourite book' turned out not to be a sticker after all and completely spoils it. Maybe they've stopped doing this now though.

    I don't like the other two though. Not because I'm against the classics been given a modern cover, I just don't like them!

  3. I think they're beautiful, and they'd definitely convince me to get a-reading, classics or not :D
