Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Wolves

Wolves was a fantastic cover topic for me because you all know I like to stick to sci-fi/fantasy covers when possible, and guess what genre has LOTS of wolves in it? That's right, urban fantasy! All those werewolves and shifters and whatnot. And though I admittedly am not a big fan of reading wolf or shifter books, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the heck out of their gorgeous covers...

I saw this tag over at A Fool's Ingenuity, and it seemed like a fun one! The tag was originally created by Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks, and it's a very simple one that thankfully doesn't require me to think of new questions for the people I tag (seriously, those just require way too much effort). So anyway, here are some bookish things you may or may not already know about...
