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 – Backs
And The Winner Is…
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Well, it’s no big mystery that I love this cover. I used to stare at it for hours at a time (like a total creeper) simply because it told a complete story with nothing more than a picture (like all great art does.) So when the girls over at S&S threw down the gauntlet and made “Backs” this weeks cover characteristic challenge I knew I had a winner picked out before I ever started looking for the competition. Now…I could go on and on about the specifics of this cover and the symbolism of her facing away from the camera, but that’s kind of boring. So instead…I’ll just let you take it all in for yourself. Cheers!
