Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring the Moon

So how perfect is this topic for a blog named Metaphors and *Moonlight*? Granted I went with the blog name because I like the night rather than the actual moon, but the moon is, you know, also nice. And kind of important. Just a little. (Did you know that, without it, our days would be shorter and the earth's axis would vary, causing extreme climate change like ice in Africa? I got curious lol....

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Mirrors

Sometimes when I start searching for book covers, I think a topic will be easy, but it turns out to be difficult. Well, this time, I had the opposite problem. I couldn't find crap when I was actually looking. But then book covers with mirrors just started popping up everywhere. And since I start most of my posts ahead of schedule, I just kept bookmarking webpages until I finally compiled them...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Jewels

The first Cover Characteristics post of 2016! And who'd have thought it'd be such a hard one? Book covers with jewels turned out to be so much harder to find than I thought they would be. 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...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers from Books I Read in 2015

Now that 2015 is coming to an end, I really wanted to share some of the amazing book covers I have fallen in love with. But I've realized I'm kind of a bitch when it comes to book covers, and I've become one even more so as the year has gone on and I've seen more and more of them. I was going to write this whole spiel about what I do and don't like in book covers, but I've decided to save it for...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Snakes

I really thought book covers with snakes would be easy to find, but I was wrong. However, some of the ones I did find I really love, so it worked out in the end. As for snakes in general, I feel like they're a common fear, right? I've never had an issue with snakes though. Granted I don't want random, wild snakes crawling on me, but the ones they let you hold at zoos and whatnot are awesome. Are...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Sharks

As I was perusing Amazon for book covers with sharks on them, I stumbled into the "deep sea thriller" and general sea creature horror/thriller book section that I did not previously know existed. And let me tell you, there are some terrifying book covers out there. I'm talking blood-soaked boats and monstrous creatures and stormy skies with tsunami-type waves, all of which would only be, like,...
