Cover Characteristic – Jewel(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: Jewel(s)

5.  Flawless: Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History by Scott Andrew Selby & Greg Campbell

    I think I like Gem Rats the best, followed by The Hidden. Great picks! Thanks for hosting this! It’s always so much fun!

    • Sugar & Snark

      Isn’t that ring gorgeous?!

  • All these sparkly covers are so pretty! I think my favorite is Gem Rats, but I do like the yellow jewel in Double Crossed because I feel like you don’t often see yellow even though it’s pretty!

    • Sugar & Snark

      I agree! I love yellow gems because they are so unique 🙂

  • Greg Hill

    Double Crossed would be my favorite too, I like that stone. Next would be Gem Rats, and then Flawless. Gem Rats kinda makes ya wonder what it’s about. Great list!

      I think the font of Gem Rats stopped me from moving it up on the list. But definitely a cover that makes me wonder as well!
