Cover Characteristic: Wolves

May 29, 2017 Cover Characteristics 8



Cover Characteristics is a meme hosted by Sugar & Snark. Each week, participants choose 5 covers for that week’s theme. This week’s theme is Wolves.


This is the first time I’ve joined Cover Characteristics. While I don’t think I’ll be doing it weekly, I will probably jump in whenever the theme particularly appeals to me.

There are tons of urban fantasy novels and shifter romances with wolves on the cover, so I decided to do something a little different and focus on YA and children’s books with cover art, not photos, of wolves. The one exception to the children’s/YA rule is Never Cry Wolf; I included it because my 9th-grade history and science teacher read it to us during lunch, and I loved it. (That’s also why I went with the cover I remember from that edition.) Of the other books, I’ve only read The Wolves of Willoughby Chase and Wolf-Speaker, and I included them primarily because I love the books themselves (though WoWC is a good cover.) But isn’t the cover of Old Wolf gorgeous? I couldn’t resist it.

If you want to participate, choose your covers, make your post, and head over to Sugar & Snark to link up. See you there!

    I’d probably go with Old Wolf as my favorite here although Julie of the Wolves is nice too. They’re all nice really. Can’t go wrong with wolves. 🙂 I like Wolf Speaker too the more I look at it.

      I love the whole Immortals quartet, and I really like that cover. But my favorite cover in that bunch is for Old Wolf, I think.
