Cover Characteristic: Feathers

Cover Characteristics is a weekly feature hosted at Sugar & Snark. I loved the category this week. Ann and I went to the library last week and took the opportunity to wander around looking for covers with feathers (and getting a couple of strange looks as we went) and so we have rather more than the five we usually stick to.
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava LavenderFire & Flood (Fire & Flood, #1)Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood, #2)Magonia (Magonia, #1)A Thousand NightsAllegiant (Divergent, #3)

My favourite is definitely A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston but then it's one of the most beautiful covers I have ever seen. When the book first arrived I spent a ridiculously long time staring at the cover - and then a bit more time wandering the house making everyone else stare at the cover. But I also love a lot of the other covers, such as Magonia which I think is beautiful and Feather Boy and Feathers which are both very simple but intriguing. 

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading


  1. Ooh you've got some good ones. I like that Allegiant cover A Thousand Nights but I think Salt and stone is my fave. Must be the blue. Hush , Hush makes me wonder what's going on in that story. And I like the idea of scouring the library for covers- sounds fun. :)

  2. You did pick some great covers. I wanted to do more than five as well, but I made myself pick the five I liked the best. I almost included Feathers but decided against it at the last moment.

  3. All these covers look fantastic, especially A Thousand Nights! Here’s my Cover Characteristic!

  4. What a beautiful selection. Whoa! I also had that cover for Allegiant, but didn't use it. Glad to see you did! Love the cover for Magonia. Here's mine:

  5. Ah yes Allegiant!

    Sorry that this week's post was a little late!
    Thanks for joining in last week :)
