Cover Characteristic: Eyes

The Cover Characteristic meme is hosted at  Sugar and Snark.   Here are the guidelines:

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).
You don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be great! Don’t forget to stop by the other participants!


There are a lot of books with eyes on the cover!  So I tried to narrow it down to books that it was mostly just the eyes, and not a whole face in the picture.  And again, I have 10 favorites, although a couple of the numbers are series where the whole group has eyes.  Here they are:

10.  This is a classic, had to be included.

9.  

 8.


7.

6.

 5.

4.
3.
 2.

 1.  And my favorite is actually a series:

So many books with eyes on the cover!  These are my favorites, what do you think of them? 

Ooh, almost forgot this one!!

  1. There's something so spooky about eyes on a cover - even in non spooky books. I do love The Great Gatsby cover! I'm intrigued by the Victoria Scott covers too. Great cover topic!

    1. The original cover I had for the Victoria Scott books didn't look like that, so I didn't know if I'd like the new covers or not. But they turned out well. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. The Great Gatsby cover is a classic, no doubt. Some scary ones there too! I like those Tahereh Mafi covers a lot, very distinctive - and that last one has me curious! Great list.

    1. The last one if I remember right was only okay, had some issues with the actual story. But loved the cover! Thanks for visiting!

  3. I love your number 1, who can beat that? Those covers are so beautiful! I love covers with eyes and always want to know the story they have to tell...

    1. Eyes can always fit just about any theme I think. And I do love that series. Although the original cover of the first one had a girl in a white dress, and just didn't really match the story, so I was glad when they changed it. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Ah, you did the same thing I did to narrow it down since there were so many. Obviously I agree that the Shatter Me books are gorgeous since I chose them, too! But I also love those Victoria Scott ones! I'm going to have to see what they're about since they look interesting.

    1. I do highly recommend Victoria Scott's books if you haven't read them yet. This series is very similar to The Hunger Games. Thanks for visiting!

  5. Great post! I love the Shatter/Unravel/Ignite Me series, I totally agree with you. I don't know what it is, but the eyes are fantastic! I love what they've done with them. I can't pick just one favourite out of the three though... each time I make up my mind it changes again lol. Very eye-catching!
    All the best,

  6. Wow, you found a lot of covers to include for this topic. Great job. I like how you focused on books with just eyes instead of a whole face. Nice touch.

    1. It made it easier, otherwise with a face on there too there would have been way too many!

  7. Lots of 'eye' novels. Judging just by the covers, Sneak looks good. :)
