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 the host is off so I guess it's a freebie week. My topic is covers with a faerie element- since I'm doing a discussion post on Tuesday about the fae folk it seemed like a natural pick. I'm in that mindset anyway... so let's see what we have.
The Cats of Tanglewood Forest is a favorite of mine, and although there are no faeries on the cover they play a prominent role in the story. Artwork is by Charles Vess who kinda specializes in this kind of artwork- his site is worth a look.
I like this cover it seems to have an enchanted feel to it.
No idea what this is about but it's a faery tale apparently and it's Holly Black.
This has a ethereal sort of vibe to it, not a bad cover. Looks YA- ish.
I started this book once but never finished- not because it wasn't good, but just because I got sidetracked. It was sort of alternate history with Victorian era stuff if I remember. I should go back.
Again no ideas on this one but love the cover.
This looks like a classic book on faeries and bonus- art is by Alan Lee (known for his Lord of the Rings work).
I have no idea if this is even a faerie book but the title and cover both look like they have that vibe. I'm going with it.
