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 was kinda tough- I didn't find a lot of covers with mirrors, and when I did sometimes I didn't want to use them. So yeah- it's not just finding the covers, it's finding ones I like. Way to make it harder I guess, right? Well, on that note- here we go. Cover with mirrors that pass a very stringent screening process. :)
The Christie one has that old school look to it, and a bit of poison spilled on the mirror which I kinda like. And Objects in Mirror struck me as a thriller at first- I saw the headlights in the mirror and thought someone was being followed. Turns out it's actually an essay book and not fiction at all... I like my take on it better. :)
My favorite? Probably this one. I don't think it's a great cover, but I do kinda like the reflection in the mirror. There's not a lot to it but it does fit into the theme of those redesigned Bond covers. I imagine they all look good together on the shelf.
Runner up would be this one- I guess. I like the vines around the lettering and the fact that there's a different reflection in the mirroe- and the woods in the background. It's an effective cover.
So... which one is your favorite? I didn't have any this week I really loved, Im hoping next week will be better. With the topic next week being moons, I suspect that will be easier... and there should be some good choices!
