But, as usual, hunting down the covers is part of the fun, especially since I always end up finding more books to add to my TBR and more free ebooks to download.
I'm not a jewelry person myself, but I did manage to find some covers I really love and books I look forward to reading!
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. This week’s topic is:
Book Covers featuring Jewels
Elixir Series by Melanie Delon
I used the Italian Edition for Book 1 because it’s prettier, but these are really some beautiful covers.
The Diamond Thief Series by Sharon Gosling
I’m not sure the last cover has a jewel on it, but who cares, they’re so pretty! And they look intriguing.
The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton
The font and design makes this look so magical.
King Ruin by Michael John Grist
The jewel is not as big and obvious in this cover as the others (it’s on her scarab necklace), but come on, IT’S SUCH A GREAT COVER. I probably would’ve chosen it as my favorite had it fit the theme a tad bit better. The whole series has amazing covers.
The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
It’s pretty with an interesting gray and yellow color scheme.
The Jewel by Amy Ewing
I love the way the focus spreads out from the middle and looks all geometric.
Emerald Bound by Teresa Richards
Now THAT is an emerald. And I love the focus on the gem and her hands.
Under My Skin by Shawntelle Madison
I love red. Case closed.
Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway
The photo is so interesting and full of contrast and gorgeous.
All That Glitters Series by K.A. Linde
They’re just so pretty and sparkly! The black background gives great contrast, and the minimalism works perfectly.
