Cover Characteristic – Schools


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: Schools

Sugar’s list:


5. Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) by Richelle Mead
4. Spud – Exit, Pursued by a Bear (Spud #4) by John van de Ruit
3. Resistance (Night School #4) by C.J. Daugherty
2. Wybrani (Night School #1) by C.J. Daugherty

And Sugar’s favorite…


  1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Of course the Harry Potter cover wins for me. But I must also add the boxset. It is gorgeous!

    I like Vampire Academy ( liked the movie, haven’t read the book) and Resistance the best. I like her red hair and black dress and the big old school in the background. Great picks.

      The books are soooooooo much better! When you have a change check them out 🙂

    I love that boxset! I wanted it for Christmas – I should have just bought it. I also love that HP cover. So pretty. Night School Resistance is also an intriguing cover.

      I also want is bad 🙁

  • I’ve also used Spud and wanted to use Harry Potter, but knew someone else would! Still love it though.

      Spud is such a great series!
