Cover Characteristic – Silhouettes


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: Silhouettes

Sugar’s list:


5. Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) by Sarah Rees Brennan
4. Yours Truly by Kirsty Greenwood

    • Sugar & Snark

      Thanks Mareli!

  • Greg Hill

    Great picks this week. I like Unspoken and Yours Truly and If You Only Knew might be my favorite, but Saving Lucas Biggs is amazing I will agree. I like the hidden objects- the star and the clock (I think it’s a clock?). Great cover!

    • Sugar & Snark

      I never even saw the clock! Yip it looks like one 🙂

  • Lisa Mandina

    I almost picked Unspoken as well! Great covers!

    • Sugar & Snark

      Thanks Lisa. I’m sure you picked awesome ones!

  • Michelle

    Great selection, once again I have some of these on my shelves and never thought to pick them.

      That is why I love the meme, we can discover or re-discover some books 🙂
