Cover Characteristic – Airplane(s)


This is a new meme hosted by Sugar & Snark. It came about when Sugar was wondering which cover to use for her #70 Cover of the Week post. Sugar kept on thinking of more than one, and they all seemed to have a theme/characteristic. So she decided to switch things up a bit!

Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite covers with that characteristic. If you want to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic, then just make a post, grab the meme picture (or make your own) and leave your URL in Linky (so we can visit). You don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be great! Don’t forget to stop by the other participants!

  • Loved doing this one. I completely forgot Rose Under Fire had planes on it.

    • Sugar & Snark

      Was pretty fun! I almost forgot as well, but for some reason I checked when I checked Code Name Verity!

  • Lisa Mandina

    Code Name Verity was on my list as well, although I had a different cover for mine, I love the cover you posted!

    • Sugar & Snark

      Awesome book all around!

  • Great picks! I agree with your favorite, I like the whites and grays, too. Planes was a hard one though!

    • Sugar & Snark

      Yea I don’t think we often pick up on planes on covers!

  • I love love loved Code Name Verity! The only other book I can think of is Ask The Passengers and the plane isn’t even on the cover.

    • Sugar & Snark
