New look = unfinished looking.
iBooks was a beautiful app. The wood grain bookshelves were very nice to look at and gave the impression of actual books sitting on a shelf. Upon seeing the description of a beautiful new design, I had hopes of something even nicer to look at. What I was greeted with instead was a stark white void that was entirely without any character or charm whatsoever. It looks as if this was rushed out the door in a "that'll do, I guess" fashion. I loathe it and I want my old iBooks app back. Until such time, I will not be spending any of my money in this app!

Facepalm
I did not find it is beautiful. It is ugly.

Sans-serif?
Please, please, please bring back a decent sans-serif font! Seravek is about the ugliest thing I've ever seen. At least give a few sans-serif options!

Okay
The main problem is the new format. The old iBooks was meant to look and feel like real pages. The iOS 7 interface is sharper and sleeker, but it lacks the natural reading feeling.

Beautiful?
I find it silly that they call this a beautiful redesign when all they did is remove every bit of color and artwork. It's just white, that's it.

New iBooks
iOS 7 came out and all the apps need to be redesigned. New design has potential but some apps don't go well with it. And iBooks is one of these apps. Previously iBooks was great looking for its shelves, icon, book itself. Old design gave you a feeling of reading a book. But iBooks is the last app made by Apple that was redesign for new iOS. It was a hard choice to make either great look or "made for iOS 7".
