Cover Characteristic – Big Ben


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!

      I struggled getting a clearer cover of Moonlands, but I agree it is gorgeous!
      Aww thanks!

  • I didn’t think of Clockwork Angel!!! I haven’t read it but the cover is so pretty!

      Also haven’t read it yet, but the cover makes me want to!

    I never thought of Clockwork Angel, but I do love the other covers you have picked….I may even have to investigate these books 🙂
