I also included a little bonus at the end just for funzies ;-)
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. This week’s topic is:
Books Covers featuring Skulls
Mortal Ties by Eileen Wilks
I love the style of this one, and the glow coming from the skull is a really nice touch.
Shield and Crocus by Michael R. Underwood
The giant skull in the background is pretty cool.
Skulduggery Pleasant Series
These look so fun, and he looks like such a dapper yet mischievous skeleton.
The Necromancer by Katerina Martinez
This one is just pretty.
Touched by A.J. Aalto
I also just think this one is so pretty.
Much of Madness by S.E. Summa
I LOVE the bright colors and the combination of red and teal, and the overall design is just great too.
Revenge by Anna Santos
I love the style of this art, and the whole pictures is so pretty and interesting.
The Last Necromancer by C.J. Archer
I love everything about this one—the colors, the dress, the background, the skull lantern—but I already chose it as my favorite another week and figured another cover deserved the chance to shine this time.
Unsympathetic Magic by Laura Resnick
I also completely love this one because it’s such an amazing and gorgeous painting—but again, I already chose it as a favorite another week.
Zombie Ocean Series
I may be pushing it since technically these are zombies, but the ones in the last cover especially look pretty darn skeletal, and I just LOVE these covers. They’re a tiny bit gruesome, but they’re also amazing little pieces of art, and I love how bold and eye-catching they are!
Bonus: Shot Glasses!
I know it’s a terrible photo, but these are two of my favorite shot glasses from my collection. The Jack Skellington one was actually the one that started it all. I was on a vacation at Disney and wanted a souvenir but couldn’t find anything I actually wanted… except that. So I decided right then and there to start a collection. The other one I lovingly refer to as my blinged out pirate shot glass :-)
