Cover Characteristics Snow


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- Snow

This week we're looking at... snow! With Cover Characteristics on official hiatus it's been all rogue topics all the time around here lately. Kristen at Metaphors and Moonlight came up with this one and it's a great topic for December.

Another world. Snow! What's not to like?? 

Towering

Always liked this one.

Blood and a rose. Nice.

I like how this one is like looking up, plus it's a chilling tagline. 

Winter of the Gods (Olympus Bound, #2)

The Midnight Star (The Young Elites, #3)

A pretty striking image - lots of deep blue and stars.

This is the Italian version of The Ice Dragon.

Cover of Snow

I like the stark branches and a house in the background- looks vaguely like a thriller?

A newer Game of Thrones- seriously how many cover does this series need???

Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson, #7)

I'm not sure how much snow (any?) is in this pic, but it might be my fave. Probably my fave of the Mercy thompson covers too.

Eerie- great icy monoliths out in space.

  1. I almost used Frost Burned and Blood Red, but they didn't go with my collage color scheme lol. And I was also unsure if that was really snow? It must be, I guess, since frost is in the title. It is a nice one though. I've always liked Towering too. And Ice Dragon is cool.

    1. Ah see you have a color scheme lol. I'm not quite that organized. :) But I do like Frost Burned, and I know... it's very iffy if that's a snow cover, but I do love it. Ice Dragon is cool.

  3. Oh, I agree, After the snow with the cover looking up is a great one -- it's my favourite out of this bunch, I think.

    1. I do too! Something about snow just adds something... and I agree even though there have been a lot of GoT covers, I really like that one because it has a very wintry feel.

  7. So many great covers! I really like Blood Red Snow White, After the Snow and Towering! They look really good! I had no idea there were so many different covers for Game of Thrones either! lol

    Hope you have a great week!

  8. I think Blood Red Snow White and Winter of the Gods are my two favorites. I need to start the one series though. I read Towering a year or so ago and for some reason, have always liked Flynn's retellings. Wonderful feature. I love to watch it snow - on TV or in the movies, not close up - haha. Actually, last winter was so cold here on some days I would have been grateful if it would have snowed - it would have meant it had to warm up some 0- haha.

  9. Oo so many great picks! I love snow on the cover of books. I live in Texas and we don't really get snow so maybe that's why I think it's so pretty lol!
