Welcome to Cover Characteristic! This is originally Hosted by Sugar and Snark. The host is back from hiatus and I will be finishing out what I have set up and juggle between what I have and what they are doing. Don’t want to step on any toes. I have been eyeing up the meme for a while and am excited to finally be joining in.
After this week I will be going by their official rules of 5 covers however I might actually do 10 instead. I am still working out how I want to do this but it’s getting to be a lot with all these covers 🙂 I love them but I might save the big ones for end of year posts. So after this week, it will be 5 or 10 covers max from books I read, want to read and found. 🙂 (I would be some weeks will be more because I never stick to doing things one way) 😉
This weeks theme is Pirates
I have a love for Pirates, I am sure they were rather smelly people but the way books and movies have romanticized them I find them to be fascinating and sometimes sexy. Pirated books were always my favorite especially historical romance. I found some of these covers to be gorgeous and still to this day after reading it almost 23 years ago, The Pirate and the Pagan cover is still my favorite.
Some of the books I have read and loved the covers of, Hook’s Revenge series which I have in paperback is a gorgeously handdrawn cover. I love the details and coloring of those covers. Even the font’s that are used is eye catching. When I think Pirates, I think Peter Pan and those retelling covers always have a pirate theme and are usually stunning. The Fog Driver’s coloring is the thing that caught my eye when I picked it up, the inside isn’t 100% pirate but they are scavenger pirates and I love that cover. Like I said above The Pirate and the Pagan is the winner for me this week. I loved those old Romance novel covers.
Next weeks theme is Wings
Thanks for stopping by to check out this awesome covers.
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
