Cover Characteristic [@sugar_and_snark]

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!

This week's Cover Characteristic: Black Covers

and my favorite:

I really do like the starkness of the flower against that black black. The font is pretty and matches really well. It is a fairly simple cover but definitely both an attention getting one and a memorable one.

Do you have a favorite black book cover? Leave a comment and let me know - and link me to your Cover Characteristic post if you have one!


  1. Ohhhh - such striking covers! Ash, Stolen & Such A Pretty Girl just speak to me. More books for the TBR. There is just something so striking about an image against a truly deep black background. I love your choices... even if you did add to my reading pile *wink*

  2. I love your picks. I should have thought about Ash because I have seen it on everyones blog. Such a Pretty Girl looks interesting.

  3. That cover of Ash is epic! Thanks for joining in last week :)
