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).
March 26th – UFO
This was a harder one than I originally imagined. First of all, I had to fight against my own ideas when it comes to ufo’s.
I really, really wanted to add in Aliens and the like. Body Snatchers! There are so many that have actual aliens on the cover and are extremely terrifying, War of the Worlds for instance, but I tried to stick with an actual UFO on the cover. Most of them are a bit older as the newer book cover artists must have gotten imaginative with their ideas of alien invasions. No aliens to see here people just bright lights!
With a Space Invaders cover, this was almost number one. Nostalgia is a wonderful thing!
2. UFO UFO!
