Cover Characteristics - Flags

Welcome to another edition of Cover Characteristics! This week we will be joining Dr Sheldon Cooper on his hit show: Fun with Flags



No, not really. But wouldn't that be fun?

Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted by Sugar and Snark. Every week they give us these gorgeous themes and then you have to pick 5 covers featuring that theme. If you want to participate: 
  • Pick your covers 
  • Post it to your blog
  • Share your post's URL in the linky provided by Sugar and Snark
  • Go and check out the other guys who also posted! (This might influence your current TBR list a great deal.)


I've search far and wide for books featuring flags on the covers of countries/states/galaxies as discussed on Fun with flags. But that didn't proof to be very successful. If you could find any - please let me know. I just ended up using my own collection.

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo one of the most famous and beautiful novels ever written. 
Cosette by Laura Kalpakian This is a sequel to Les Miserables that I haven't read yet. Not that much interested in reading it either. Have you or would you read this one?
A Little in Love by Susan E. Fletcher Another novel inspired by Les Miserables. This one I will read. I would love to know more about Eponine. Although we know her fate, I would still like to read her story. Have you read this one? Tell me it's as beautiful as it sounds.... 

All three these books of course feature the national flag of France.

56674 You Are My Sunshine: A Holocaust Novel.   Book two of the All My Love Detrick, series by [Kagan, Roberta]

The two most feared flags during WWII were the Japanese Rising Sun as featured on the cover of Empire of the Sun by J.G. Ballard and the Nazi flag, the Swastika as featured on the cover of You are my Sunshine by Roberta Kagan (kindle edition). I have read Empire of the Sun and You are my Sunshine is on my TBR list. 


Thalk to me!

What books featuring flags are your favorite?
Are you a fan of Dr Sheldon Cooper's Fun with Flags?

Wishing you all a lovely Wednesday! It's Local Election day in South Africa. So after casting my vote, I will spend the rest of my day reading.
