Cover Characteristics



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- The Backs of People   


Okay I wasn't sure I was going to like this one very much but then I came across these redesigned Bond covers and remembered using some for Bookcover Spotlights a few months ago. So that helped jumpstart my search  and I ended up happy with what I found. Like silhouettes last time I think there's a lot you can do with different poses- so this week turned out not so bad after all. 







I like the green tint  





This one might be my favorite- love the earring. 



This one is pretty good too. 



I rather like this one with the red hair and the lettering. 



I like the knife, I think that's a nice touch. Otherwise this one's just okay. 



Another favorite - this might be my runner up. I like the purple tint and the green ring. 



This one's almost more of a side view but who's counting? 



This one's not bad but it's not a favorite- I do like the reflection 

BONUS - this is the German cover of Thunderball.

  3. These are all so pretty! Especially when you put them all together like this. But of course my favorite is the red one :-P But even if it weren't my favorite color, I do like how the text is in that one and the pose and dress. And I think Thunder Ball is my second favorite.

    1. I think that's one of my favorites too, actually. It stands out from some of the others. each one has a little bit different text, and that's one of the better ones. Which Thunderball do you like? I'm partial to the German one myself.
