Cover Characteristics - 23 May 2016
Today's Cover Characteristics - Don't you turn your back on me! (Okay, actually it is covers featuring only the back of people)
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 (or more - whatever blows your hair back) 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 was quite amazed to see how many books feature only the backs of people. I've only browsed through the list of books that I have read already and there were more than enough for this week's theme. Gmmf, now I don't feel so bad anymore for turning my back on a book this past weekend - there are plenty of books who turn their backs on us!
Every week I struggle to decide which book to mark as my favourite cover. I've decided to place the book that I thought of first every week - FIRST. So for this week it will be:
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I loved both the girls in these books.
The Girl with all the gifts by M.R. Cary
After Anna by Alex Lake
But all little girls grow into teenagers who think they can conquer the world and fall in love with boys who will only break their hearts. Over and over again.
Torment by Lauren Kate
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
And then there is Spud. Quite sure that he will never intentionally turn his back on you.
Cormoran has a lot on his mind, I will excuse him for turning his back on me. But Juliet is a different story. She will turn her back on you. Especially if you pack her books in boxes and dump it in the cellar to make space for your sports trophies on the shelve.
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer.
Please share the books that have turned their backs on you with me - I promise to hate them too.
