Cover Characteristic #7



Cover Characteristics is a meme by Sugar and Snark- every week a characteristic is selected and we post 5 books with that week's theme.  

This week's theme- Beds

This was fun this week- I couldn't find a lot at first but once I started looking at old mysteries I got luckier. There are some great old pulp covers out there- and the taglines are often hilarious.  

Anyway here's what I went with. A mix of old and new- let me know what you think. 



Epitaph for a Tramp- seriously?

My favorite this week? Tough one, but I might go with Dead in Bed.  Or The Big Sleep.

  2. Hahaha, you're right, the tag lines are great! I can't even decide on my favorite old covers. Probably the same two you chose. My favorite new one would be the Jenny Han one since I chose it too :-P

    1. Some of those taglines were pretty out there. Who read that stuff?? :)

      This meme keeps getting better cause I think the topics are getting harder! I was looking ahead and I have no idea about some of those... LOL. And it was hard to pick a favorite... I liked some of the pulp covers and some were just ridiculous. :)

  5. The pulp covers are amazing! And those tag lines! The Big Sleep is probably my favorite though I do love the tag line for You Can't Catch Me.

    1. I like that one too, and it was the last one I saw so I almost didn't include it! Those covers are something else, and the retro nature of them is fun. :)

  6. DYING. Some of these are just too funny! I love how Lara Jean is just daydreaming on her bed, all innocent, and then BAM- dead lady on bed. Bwhahahah. These are fabulous, definitely a creative list, great job!!
