Cover Characteristics: Alcoholic Beverages

Cover Characteristics2

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 week’s 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!

Today’s Cover Characteristic: Alcoholic Beverages

I am not much of an adult beverage drinker. At age 4, my youngest uncle had his jaw wired shut and a side-arm cast from a broken jaw, broken collarbone and other injuries from a drunk driving crash. His best friend also died in that crash. Growing up, two boys in my grade were killed because their fathers chose to drive drunk. (And yes, both fathers lived.) In college, one of my friends was paralyzed due to drunk driving (again, injured by his friend).

I had a little difficulty finding book covers that were not mixology books. I know there are more out there, but I just wasn’t find them.

  1. Gutter Lust might be my favorite just because those covers are always so ridiculous! I love how she’s just chugging it there lol. And Diary of an alcoholic Housewife isn’t bad either.

    I get you on the seriousness though- I had a relative who died after being hit by a drunk driver too. It can absolutely destroy lives.

  2. Wow, sorry to hear about those drunk driving incidents :-/ It’s sad that people put their lives and the lives of others at risk like that.

    This was a hard topic though! I think Diary of an Alcoholic Housewife is my favorite.
