This is a new meme hosted by Sugar & Snark. It came about when Sugar was wondering which cover to use for her #70 Cover of the Week post. She kept on thinking of more than one, and they all seemed to have a theme/characteristic. So she decided to switch things up a bit!
Each week I (along with the S&S ladies) will post a characteristic and choose 5 of my favorite covers with that characteristic. I would love for you to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic so hop on down to the comments and tell me what you think.
Today’s Cover Characteristic – Moons
And The Winner Is…
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Ok, I know what you are thinking “Misty…that is NOT the original cover for Coraline! It was all black and only had her named scrolled across the top! You are cheating.” To which is say Phooey On You! I know this isn’t the original cover. The copy I own is the orignal, but I freaking love this movie version (which for the record I don’t usually indorse.) The moon is this massive hulking entity which (for some reason) just sucks you in! (Much like the cover for The Dead & The Gone) And, if you look closely…one less hole (aka crater) and the moon would look like a bowling ball which the tree (which looks like a HAND) could pick up. (Oh don’t judge me! I know I’m abstract!) Anyways…that’s my favorite. Do you have one?
