Cover Characteristics- Mythological Creatures
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- Mythological Creatures
This is a rogue theme I'm doing this week, I've been kinda holding this one in reserve for a topic that I wasn't feeling. So here we go... creatures of myth and legend. From winged snakes in a steaming jungle to the creatures of Greek myth, from dragons wheeling through the clouds to a unicorn in a sun dappled glade, there's no shortage of covers for this topic, so I went with ones I really liked or just wanted to showcase.
I've heard good things about this book, and I like the coloring of the dragon.
In some ways this is my favorite, I just think it's a great cover. It looks especially good as a hardcover and I'm glad I have a copy of this one. This book is about a selkie and is set off the shore of New Hampshire- I liked it.
Faeries are a favorite subject, I like their dark and mysterious nature and you can tell so many kinds of stories- from lighthearted romps to seriously dark tales.
This is probably my favorite- I love the storm tossed seas and the perspective is like someone in the water.
Another favorite - I chose to go with dragons several times (let's face it, I like the covers). I like this one for the isolated nature of the setting- and notice the thief hiding below the nest. He better hope she's doesn't find him...
