Cover Characteristic – Clothes Only (No people)


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!

  • Aaah yea!! I was waiting for this theme as I have a much loved book I want to feature…. Will post tomorrow. I really like the Distant Waves cover. I actually had it in mind too! Although I haven’t read it yet. Rather weird as I love Titanic stories.

      Glad you are excited! – PS: On Maternity Leave atm – baby came a bit early.

    Prom and Prejudice lol. That one and Perfected are nice, but I also like Distant Waves the best. Kinda sobering given the subject matter. Nice picks this week!

    • Sugar & Snark

      Thanks Greg 🙂 PS: On Maternity Leave atm – baby came a bit early.

  • I was gonna do this topic, but then I could only find like two covers lol. Perfected is my favorite, I love the minimalist look!

    • Sugar & Snark

      It sucks when we can’t find covers! PS: On Maternity Leave atm – baby came a bit early.

  • Charlie Anderson

    OK, I kind of failed at this one today. I had clothes ON people, but you couldn’t see who they were. All but the Prom one look a little ominous. I think Distant Waves is also my favorite.

    • Sugar & Snark

      HAHAHA no worries at all! PS: On Maternity Leave atm – baby came a bit early.

  • Lisa Mandina

    Distant Waves was on my list, and it was my favorite too! Great minds think alike! 🙂

    • Sugar & Snark

      So true! PS: On Maternity Leave atm – baby came a bit early.

        Congratulations! Enjoy spending time with your new little one!

          Thank you so much Lisa 🙂
