Cover Characteristic – Butterflie(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: Butterflie(s)

5. The Realm of Hungry Spirits by Lorraine López
4. Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block
3. Fragile Eternity (Wicked Lovely #3) by Melissa Marr

  • The Husband’s Secret cover is gorgeous and I get the warm fuzzy feeling everytime I see one of Wicked Lovely series. I loved them all. Wish they made them into movies.

    • Sugar & Snark

      I agree the Wicked Lovely series covers are awesome! I didn’t love the books that much, but I also think a movie would be awesome!

  • Greg Hill

    Awesome picks! I like fragile Eternity the most, but The Husband’s Secret is good too (and was a great book).

    • Sugar & Snark

      Oooh I will have to read The Husband’s Secret then!

  • Tammy February

    Ooh I love all of these covers. They’re so gorgeous. I think my favourite is the Francesca Lia Block one because it’s so striking against the blue background. Love this feature of yours. May actually join in at some point as well!

    • Sugar & Snark

      Oooh I hope you do Tammy!

  • I can’t believe how many book covers with butterflies there are. I found so ridiculously many, and still I never saw a single one of the ones you chose! I especially LOVE the cover of Love in the Time of Global Warming. So gorgeous! The rest are definitely great, too.

    • Sugar & Snark

      I know there were waaay to many! Was very hard to choose!

  • Denice Mae

    I like the cover for Fragile Eternity! The colors are awesome! =)

  • Lisa Mandina

    I haven’t heard of all of these, I like that first and fourth one too! Great picks!

      That is why I love doing this, I find all these new and exciting books 🙂
