Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Butterflies

So, butterflies. While not the most difficult topic, you wouldn't think butterflies would be that common on book covers, right? Right?! WRONG. SO RIDICULOUSLY WRONG. I started out well, I knew of a few off the top of my head and found some more on Amazon until I had some nice ones to choose from. But then I had this brilliant idea and was all, "I'll look through my kindle library and my TBR for...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Dragons

I'm all excited for this weeks topic of dragon book covers because it came at kind of a perfect time. One of my favorite series (Steel & Stone by Annette Marie) just released the cover for the final book, and it just so happens to have a dragon on it! It also sounds like it's going to have lots of dragon-y goodness (well, some of the characters are kind of part-dragon, but they also have dragon...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Eyes

This topic is such a good one! I mean, there are so many book covers with eyes as the main focus. I have like 10 on my kindle alone, and that doesn't include the million more out there that I don't own. But of course that also means I was once again struck with indecision and ended up going with ten picks rather five, including some books from the same series because they were too gorgeous not to...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers Featuring Phones

It's another week of Cover Characteristics, and I'm just so glad we're past the TV week, haha. This week it's phones! Honestly, I don't understand how people lived before phones were invented. Not even just cell phones but landlines. Do you ever think about that? I mean, people had to just go to someone's house and knock on their door, hoping they were home, if they wanted to talk. Or they had to...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring TVs

Since I completely failed at this weeks Cover Characteristics, I will make up for it by once again regaling you with a related fun fact. You know that TB test you get every so often as a kid to make sure you don't have tuberculosis? Well no one actually explained to me what it was. So, when I was little, I thought it was a TV test that tested if you were watching too much TV. Luckily I always...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Airplanes

Airplanes was a hard topic for me to find covers for. There are a lot of war, historical, adventure, rescue mission type cover, but those aren't my kinda books, so I wanted something different. I ended up with a really colorful bunch somehow, and they're all actually pretty diverse. So airplanes ended up being a fun topic for this week in the...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Cover featuring Suitcases

Isn't it funny how certain objects and topics are more common in certain genres? It seems that most book covers with suitcases and purses are chick lit and contemporary. Occasionally they're hopeful, inspiring, touching stories about a man's life and/or marriage going down the drain and how he changes as he picks himself back up in a genre that I'm not sure of (seriously, this describes two of my...
