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 pick- ?
This week there is no topic so I'm just doing a freebie. My topic - Steampunk. I've always liked the idea of steampunk and clockwork fantasy but finding books that I like in that category is a little tougher. I've read a handful though and will probably try more at some point.
I like the idea of a fantasy world with steampunk elements- airships, strange cities, maybe clockwork automatons- moreso than alternate history where it's like Paris in the 1890's but with goggles and stuff. I would rather have an all new world with those elements but that's just me. Do you like steampunk- and if so would you rather have a fantasy world or an alt history ?
This is actually a cover for Halestorm CD. I like the steampunk elements.
This one's okay, not bad. I like the airship (dirigible?) and the clockwork or gear elements.
This one's not bad, i like the sense that they're surrounded and it's kinda dark. You can't really tell it's steampunk (other than the goggles) but according to Goodreads it is.
Don't know much about this one but I kinda like it. The cat is interesting along with her weapon, but not crazy about the background.
This looks like a middle grade but I like this cover. She looks like screw this I'm killing something and I like the sword, the lamp and the night scene.
Nice! This is my favorite definitely. Cool dress, love the green and she appears to be holding some kind of jewel or charm- whatever it is, it's giving off magic looks like.
This one's alright, looks very generically steampunk
This one's nice too, I like her goggles and the green and it looks like she's inside a ship or something. All the covers in this series are pretty good.
I read the first book in this series but have not read this one. I've seen it in the store though and the cover does look nice, it's just not my favorite. I never saw many reviews of these but the first one was okay. They're YA.
I kinda like the style of these covers but this one is not my favorite. I do like that she's in a kind of gallery though, apparently.
Maybe my second favorite. I like that they're underwater (I think) and she seems to be steering, plus there's a porthole type thing going on back there. I like it.
This one is an anthology and I kinda like her costume with the bracers and the whole thing. Plus it looks Victorian in the background.
And here's some Halestorm in case you like loud stuff.
