Wuthering Heights Emily Brontë

While the cover of this classic novel isn't exactly a movie tie-in, it does play off a much, MUCH more popular series (Twilight) in an attempt to attract new fans. According to this cover, Wuthering Heights is the favorite book of the main characters in Twilight and so, clearly, the smart marketing move was to mimic the stark black and white covers (with a well-placed crimson accent) of Twilight. Because teenage girls are idiots who wouldn't otherwise pick up Brontë? I guess that was the reasoning. The stupid, stupid reasoning.
