Today’s Cover Characteristics – Silhouettes

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.) 

When I saw today’s theme, a song immediately popped into my head and yes – I’ve been singing the whole day to the music in my head. (I also march to the beat of my own drum, but that’s completely besides the point today). Who of you remember Bonnie Tyler’s album Silhouette in Red? I remember this soooooo well. I had (still have, thanks to facebook) this lovely friend in Primary School who introduced me to Bonnie Tyler when we were about 11 or 12. When this album was released, we listened to it constantly. She had an amazing sound system in her room, and when those first notes of the first song (When Sally comes around) on that cd started – you had goosebumps all over – even the windows were purring like a cat from pure enjoyment. I actually get goosebumps just by remembering. (My hair never, ever wanted to look like this.)

But this is about books and luckily I could gather quite a bit just from my own little pile of books.

    • Hi Lisa! Maybe we get different book covers in South Africa… Both of these were the original covers I've read provided by my book club. Happy weekend to you!

    I love the original cover of Me Before You (as I stated in my own post) before they changed it to the red one, eventhough I think the red one tells the story better than the original.

  2. Me Before You is nice (I have not seen that cover version before) and Heat Wave has a nice crime feel. I like The Verdict and Peter Pan has a nice whimsical feel. I like your picks this week!
