Cover Characteristic: Swords

Weekly Book meme Cover Characteristic Swords

This meme is hosted by Sugar & Snark.

Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favourite covers with that characteristic.

My Picks

5. The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley

This is so beautiful and eerie. It's what it should be for this novel!

4. Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence

This cover is so epic and puts in the mood for some action!

3. The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner

This cover is just so beautiful that I can't stop looking at it!

2. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

This is actually a katana, but the cover is impressive. I love the red colour as well.

1. Puella Magi Madoka Magica Vol.2 by Magica Quartet and Hanokage

I love everything about this cover! Sayaka and Kyouko, both with their weapons. I won't lie that this is my #1 because I love the story so much as well. You can also read my recent review of it.


  1. This seems like fun! I actually haven't read any of the books you mentioned but I've been meaning to for a while. Prince Of Thorns has been on my radar for over a year but I just haven't got around to reading it yet. To be honest my fantasy reading in recent months has been poor, mainly because I'm trying to get into comics and literary fiction, but once I get back on track Prince Of Thorns will definitely be a priority. The other books you mentioned look very interesting too, I'll have to check them out...

    1. Yes, me too. I haven't read a purely fantasy novel for a while. But the literary ones I read, the most have fantasy elements, so I can't really compain. Anyway, Prince of Thorns is an enjoyable rea, I need to get to the reast of the books.

  2. I really like Prince of Thorns, and of course Stormdancer.

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica is really cute too. I'm just getting into reading Manga, though I've been watching Anime for years.

    1. Then you most probably know the anime version, it's really popular. You should give it a try, I think you'll like it :)

  3. I love the tones of Red in Stromdancer, some fantastic art! Welcome to the meme!

    1. Thank you! :)
      I love red, that's why I chose this first book for the list. But all three of them would suit just fine.

  4. Stormdancer is my favorite of the lot. Nicely picked!
    Thanks for joining in last week :)
