Cover Characteristics – Birdcages


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 – Birdcages




And The Winner Is…

Birdsong by Sabastian Faulks



Ok, so I have to admit…this one was a little tough for me because I LOVE (to obsession) two of this week’s covers. (No, I won’t tell you who came in second, you will just have to guess.) But in the end Birdsong took home the win. Why? Because I am a total junkie for deco street art and this my friends is a BEAUTIFUL example of the art I will pull my car over (in heavy traffic) for just to snap a picture of (so I can stare at it later and contemplate the intentions behind it.) And before you give me grief about this being a grenade and NOT a birdcage I ask you to take a second look. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Is that a BIRD trapped INSIDE of the grenade? Yes…yes it is. And that my friends is what you call a “Caged Bird.” I rest my case.

How about you….have any birdcage book covers you’d like to share?

About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.
