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. Sugar 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 we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite covers with that characteristic. If you want to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic, then just make a post, grab the meme picture (or make your own) and leave your URL in Linky (so we can visit).
I could just take pictures of my backyard for this one! When it rains it is almost like a swimming pool. I was excited to see there were quite a few books that were placed in New Orleans. I live about two hours away but it still feels like my backyard!
These were a bit more difficult to choose from. I really like all of them. Wicked Betrayal and At the Edge of the Orchard are obviously in the middle of a swamp and although the others may be swamp like, they are not quite as in your face. The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon’s entire setting was in a swamp, which seems crazy but that book was amazing, so although the cover isn’t quite as swamp like as the others, I figured it still deserves to be up there.
And the winner is:
What is your favorite book cover with a clock?
