I can’t do this! I can’t choose just ten covers!
Ok fine, I can. But there are A LOT of book covers with only the backs of people on them. Like, A LOT. And when I realized this, I told myself I wasn’t going to freak out, I was just going to find some and choose ten without worrying whether I was missing other amazing ones or that I was choosing the “wrong” ones from the ones I had compiled. BUT THERE ARE JUST SO MANY GREAT ONES. AND I HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM.
Anyway, after compiling together like 30 covers, all gorgeous, I finally just forced myself to stop and to choose and to stick with those choices. *pats self on back* But maybe I’ll do a Part 2 in the future ;-)
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. This week’s topic is:
Books Covers featuring Only the Backs of People
The Storm Siren Trilogy by Mary Weber
These are just so pretty, and I love all the swirly tails in the font.
Illusionarium by Heather Dixon
The colors, the clothing, the background, it’s all just pretty.
Afterlife Series by Terri Bruce
I just love these cover because the photos and editing are so pretty, and of course I also love the red in them :-P
The Marked Series by Bianca Scardoni
I especially love the first cover since it’s got the red dress and black hair and graveyard background.
Saint Sebastian The Rose by Michael W. Glover
I don’t know, I just really love this cover, what with the graveyard and the fog and the billowy black cloak…
Untaken by J.E. Anckorn
I may have cheated a bit since it’s kind of the side of one character, but I love this cover too much not to include it. The editing with the fire and stuff is so cool, and the characters fit with the ones in the story perfectly.
Towering by Alex Flinn
This is just pretty and magical-looking.
Threshold Series by Christa Kinde
I like all the detail and especially like the cover for The Broken Window.
The Lost Heir by Allison Whitmore
That dress is gorgeous and the background, the lighting, really it’s just gorgeous.
Alice Takes Back Wonderland by David D. Hammons
Honestly, I’m not even sure this is my favorite since I like so many of these, but I’ve always been drawn to this cover. It’s so pretty and whimsical.
