While not the most difficult topic, you wouldn't think butterflies would be THAT common on book covers, 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 more!" Then, while trying to get ahead on posts and looking for other book covers, I just kept coming across more and more books with butterflies.
Why? Why do all these books even have random butterflies on the cover?
Anyway, that is the story of how I ended up with, like, 40+ books to choose from. I almost shared 20 covers with you guys this week, but I decided to save my second set of favorites for a part 2 post (so there will more butterflies in the future)!
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. This week’s topic is:
Books Covers featuring Butterflies
The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison
Because I can NEVER resist a black, white, and red cover. I included both version since I love both.
Semi-Charmed by Isabel Jordan
A hilarious book, though it was the cover that drew me in in the first place.
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
Who doesn’t love this cover?
The Reflection Series by Tamara Rose Blodgett
These are dark and mysterious and I love ’em.
Butterfly by Elle Harper
This is just such a gorgeous picture.
The Unseen Trilogy by Stephanie Erickson
They’re just gorgeous and unique and I don’t know why I haven’t read Unseen yet since I have the ebook and would really love to have all these covers!
Tithe by Holly Black
I seem to be a sucker for dark brown, worn, woodsy type covers.
The Splintered Series by A.G. Howard
These covers are just so fantastic, and fantastical, and beautiful! I swear that guy on Unhinged is looking into my soul. And I definitely want to read these books.
The Beautiful Series by Jamie McGuire
I love the use of font more than anything, I think, but Walking Disaster is rather gorgeous all-around.
The Patron Saint of Butterflies by Cecilia Galante
The foreign one is definitely more beautiful and magical, but I thought you all might appreciate the English version link, too, in case you actually want to read it :-)
