Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Hands

 
 
Wow! There are A LOT of gorgeous book covers out there that prominently feature hands on them. I had a ridiculously hard time narrowing down my choices, so I can definitely see this being a topic I do a part 2 for---there are so many more covers I still want to share with you all!

But, as usual, I somehow managed to choose just ten ;-) and I don't have a whole to say about hands other than they are super useful and I'm really happy to have them. So here are the covers!
 

 

Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. This week’s topic is:

The contrast of the skin and background is striking, and I love the font.

 

The Healing Wars Series by Janice Hardy

 
The Shifter by Janice Hardy | books, reading, book covers, cover love, hands
Blue Fire by Janice Hardy | books, reading, book covers, cover love, hands

These are just pretty, very magical looking.

 

Sora’s Quest by T.L. Shreffler

This one is gorgeous and artistic, and it looks almost 3D. I was tempted to choose this as my favorite but didn’t because it kind of looks more like a video game than a book cover (though it’s still gorgeous).

 

Servants of Fate Series by Sarah Fine

 
Marked by Sarah Fine | books, reading, book covers, cover love, hands
Claimed by Sarah Fine | books, reading, book covers, cover love, hands
Fated by Sarah Fine | books, reading, book covers, cover love, hands
 

These look interesting with a great fantasy/sci-fi feel.

 

The Marnie Baranuik Files by A.J. Aalto

 
 

I couldn’t help but share all six of these because they’re just SO PRETTY!

 

Havelock by Jane D. Everly

 
 

This is another 3D one, which I love, plus I love all the red (big surprise).

 

The Left Hand Path: Mentor by T.S. Barnett

This is some nicely done yet creepy looking cover art.

 

Girl on a Wire by Gwenda Bond

It was the cover of this one that really drew me to the book (and I’m glad it did because it ended up being fantastic). I love the art style and the colors and the, well, the girl on a wire lol. It’s very eye-catching.

 

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

I like the minimalism and the colors.

 

My Favorite:
Leech Series by James Crawford

 
Caleo by James Crawford | books, reading, book covers, cover love, hands
Jack by James Crawford | books, reading, book covers, cover love, hands
Nolan by James Crawford | books, reading, book covers, cover love, hands
 

I am just so drawn to these covers, especially the first one! It’s another 3D-ish one, but it also looks so inviting and interesting and has a great use of colors.

    This was a fun one. The Healing War covers are all good, they do have a magical quality to them, and I like the colors (especially that first one).

    I think Sora’s Quest is my favorite. Yeah it’s a bit video gamey but I like the green orb thingie, I don’t know. :) It kinda jumped out at me. The Aalto covers are kind of freaky, definitely makes me wonder what’s going on in THOSE books lol. and I like Havelock (that might be my 2nd favorite). I wonder what the pill is all about, and the red nails- nice cover.

    These are all good though!

      Yeah, the first is my favorite of the Healing Wars series too. I do love the Sora’s Quest cover, so I can understand that being your favorite. Didn’t even think about the green lol. I think the Aalto books are about a witch or something like that? I might’ve made that up, haha, but they are on my TBR. Also wouldn’t mind reading Havelock, I think it’s sci-fi. Thanks!

    I never realized there are so many covers featuring hands, the only one that comes to mind right now is Destiny Rising by Siobhan Davis. But you sure found some great covers, I really like these, the focus on the hands does give a very specific feel and tone to the covers. I really like the covers for the Healing Wars and the ones for the Leech series are very good too.

      Destiny Rising is a pretty interesting cover. It’s hard to think of them off the top of the head though. I usually look through my Kindle and TBR for these posts lol. The 3D ones especially give a neat feel to the covers. Hands is a great topic since there’s so much that can be done with them on covers. And I love that on Leech cover so much!

      I have finally stumped the great Brandee! Ok stumped isn’t quite the right word, but you do always seem to have read every book on my cover posts, so this is quite a surprise :-P Would you believe I’ve had Caleo sitting on my kindle for almost a year but still haven’t read it, despite its pretty cover always beckoning me? Lol I’m gonna try and get to it this year.
