Snow just seems like the perfect topic for December, yes? Plus it turns out it makes for some very pretty and magical covers. Plus some of my favorite covers have snow on them. Also, I don’t get snow where I live, so snowy covers have this almost fantastical quality to me (whether the books are fantasy or not) and really transport me in a way that other covers don’t, so I like them. So basically, I’m killing four birds with one stone with this topic! (Disclaimer: No actual birds were harmed in the making of this post.)
Anyway, enjoy these snowy covers, and then go outside and make some snow angels when you’re done ;-)
Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. I went rogue this week, so my topic is:
Books Covers featuring Snow
Merry Chris Witch by CK Dawn
This one is just elegant and pretty.
The Ice Queen by Jovee Winters
I love all the covers for this series, and this is no exception. So gorgeous.
The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
This one just looks so magical and fairytale-esque and beautiful.
The White Tree by Edward W. Robertson
This one is a little more angry-looking than the others on this list, but I like it. Plus magic.
The Runaway by Kate O’Hearn
This one’s got nice artwork, and their wings with the snow and the mountains all just looks nice.
Heart’s Blood by Jeffe Kennedy
This is gorgeous artwork too, and the feather dress, the icicles, the swans, the mountains and the snow-filled background, it’s all so pretty and picturesque.
Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu
I love the colors, they this look so magical and nice.
The Kanin Chronicles by Amanda Hocking
These are just pretty, and I like the red and white contrast of the first.
My Favorite #1:
Black Snow by EAB
SO GORGEOUS. This artwork is just amazing, and I love everything about this cover.
My Favorite #2:
Scarlet & the White Wolf Series by Kirby Crow
These covers are a different art style than Black Snow, but I love them just as much. They’re just as gorgeous, and they really make me feel invested in the characters.
