Alright everyone, today I have a list of Snow White retellings!
Oh, wait, no, I meant apples. It’s book covers featuring apples. But it might as well have been a list of Snow White retellings since that’s what almost every book cover with an apple on it is about. That or Adam & Eve references. Apparently apples have very strong symbolism associated with them and you mustn’t dare use them for anything else!
Even though they’re pretty. And red. And sometimes green. And yummy. Especially when they’re covered in caramel.
You know, I actually made caramel apples once and put different topping on each apple—sprinkles, crushed pretzels with chocolate drizzled on top, crushed Oreos, etc.—and let me tell you. They. Were. Delicious. If you’re not on a diet or allergic to apples or something, you should definitely try this because it tastes amazing.
But anyway, now that I’ve made everyone hungry, here are some covers with apples on them to, well, I was gonna say distract you, but they might just make you even more hungry now. Oops, my bad. At least the pretty covers will be a feast for your eyes ;-)
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. I went rogue this week, so my topic is:
Books Covers featuring Apples
Stitching Snow by R. C. Lewis
This is unique and pretty.
Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace
It’s kind of eye-catching, and Snow White looks a little evil…
Winter by Marissa Meyer
I’m actually not a huge fan of this cover, I don’t really know what it is that bothers me, maybe the font? But it’s still not bad, and I was short this week.
The Girl with the Silver Eyes by Willo Davis Roberts
The artwork is so pretty, and the colors are so light and soft, and I’m curious about the levitating apple.
Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholk
When in doubt, use Wink Poppy Midnight because that cover is pretty and has got everything on it.
The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge
This is so cool looking the way the peel coils around, maybe like a snake?
Nameless by Lili St. Crow
I love how the font looks and kind of matches the straggliness of the dress.
Caleo by James Crawford
I have always loved this cover. It’s so pretty and looks so interesting, and it’s like his hand is in 3D.
Fairytale League Series by S. E. Babin
I love the artwork in both of these, and I love all the red in the first one.
The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine
This one is just so STRIKING. The contrast is amazing, and the black apple really gets your attention because apples just aren’t supposed to be that color. Even the little green leaf and tan lettering work perfectly. And the simplicity is perfect.
