Today’s Cover Characteristics – Benches

Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted by Sugar and Snark. Every week they give us these gorgeous themes and then you have to pick 5 (or more – whatever blows your hair back) covers featuring that theme. If you want to participate: 
  • Pick your covers 
  • Post it to your blog
  • Share your post’s URL in the linky provided by Sugar and Snark
  • Go and check out the other guys who also posted! (This might influence your current TBR list a great deal.) 
My favourite cover for today is again going to be the first book that popped into my head when I saw the theme. (But now I really need to pop a chocolate in my mouth)

Forest Gump by Winston Groom “Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you gonna get”

The rest were a bit tricky….. I couldn’t find any other book on my cyber or wooden book shelves featuring a bench. So I had to go on a bench-hunt. I haven’t read any of the following, although I might look into a few.

  • Memories of a marriage by Louis Begley This cover makes me feel sad. The lady looks heartbroken and foresaken. 

  • Liar’s Bench by Kim Michelle Richardson

  • Maigret and the man on the bench by Georges Simenon This looks like a rather nice mystery/detective novel.

  • Lassie by Eric Knight Agree with me here – Timmy and Lassie are leaning over the back of a bench…. Yes! Thought so too.

  • The Universe versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence I’ll get by with a little help from my friends….! A very good friend just (really, just 5 min ago!!) brought me this book to read. And it has a bench on! 

I really do hope that you were a better bench-hunter than me. Please share your findings!

  1. I didn't have a really easy time with this one either- and then to make it worse when I found some I didn't always like them or want to use them. Too picky! Anyway I like Liar's Bench and Maigret and the Man on the Bench- looks atmospheric.

    • My Mondays and Tuesdays have been just to hectic the past two weeks, so there is not time to to be picky…Actually I'm not picky with covers at all – it's what's inside I am most picky about. And it does appear as if it is getting worse…. I'm quickly going to have a look at yours and then I need to run again.
