Cover Characteristic: Clothes Only (No People)

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!


I haven't done one of these in a while, which makes me sad because this is always such a fun meme to do and get to look back through book covers I've read.  This is one that I found quite a few, and so I'll have 10 to share, in no particular order.

So, Distant Waves is probably my favorite of these.  Which one do you like best?  Can you think of any covers you really liked that had just clothes on them?  I know there are others in the Dorothy Must Die series that would have worked as well.

  1. I didn't realize so many covers did this! XD So cool! I totally prefer this over seeing faces, because I like to picture the characters as I see them, so I hate when covers have faces haha. Awesome post! ^_^

    1. It was fun to look through all of my covers to find these. And I agree, I always hate when they show me a character on the cover, but it just doesn't fit in with the picture in myhead. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Oh I'm glad you did a CC. Always the bridesmaid is nice. Summer on the Short Bus is kinda colorful, and Dorothy Must Die- I just like that title!

  4. Oh, I do really like Distant Waves. There really ARE a lot of books with just clothes on the cover. I never really realized.

  6. I LOVE fashion, so any book with clothes on the cover never fails to catch my attention! The Selection Series comes to mind when i think of the covers you shared, because all of the girls have these beautiful ballroom/fancy dresses on. The only difference is the girls are modeling them on the covers of the books, whereas the books you choose for this week are mostly just the clothes.
    Have you read the Dorothy Must Die series? is it good? I have heard a lot about the series but have yet to start it!

    1. The Selection series are my favorite covers for sure, but like you say, the girls are on the cover, so that doesn't work for this theme. I have read the first two in the Dorothy Must Die series, and a couple of the novellas that go with it. And I've enjoyed them. YOu should pick them up! Thanks for visiting!

  7. I like the second one of Always the Bridesmaid the most! It reminds me of paper-doll clothing. I loved playing with my paper dolls when I was a girl! Nice selection Lisa.

  8. I had to check this post out just from the title, which kind of cracks me up. I never thought about the covers with no people, but there are quite a few. Great fun! :)
