Cover Characteristic – Book(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!

Today’s cover characteristic: Book(s)

Sugar’s list:

5. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
4. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult
3. People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks

  • Greg Hill

    Nice list. Between the Lines and World Soul might be my faves, but then again I like your pick too. Fun topic this week!

    • Sugar & Snark

      Glad you enjoyed it Greg 🙂

  • Clockwork Princess is an amazing cover! I also really like Worldsoul. That tagline, too! I love the covers that make books look magical.

    • Sugar & Snark

      I know that cover is mind-blowing!

      Oh yes the Worldsoul tagline is awesome!

  • I love books with books on the cover; it would seem we have similar taste, as well–I spy two here that are also on mine! 😀

    • Sugar & Snark

      High-five for similar tastes! 🙂

  • Lisa Mandina

    Between the Lines is one of my favorite books ever, after I listened to the audio book back in May. Great covers!

    • Sugar & Snark

      I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet! It sounds so awesome!

  • I think everyone added The Thirteenth Tale…what a great cover! I forgot about Between the Lines…that one is great too in a completely different way!

    • Sugar & Snark

      I think the thirteenth tale is the first book that comes to mind 🙂
