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: Flags
There are a TON of books with some representation of flags on the covers. Most are non-fiction and most of the ones I found displayed the United States flag, and I didn’t want to do those, so I found a unique pattern among some of them: classics.
And one of my favorite covers from a favorite series that is not a classic…

Under the Jolly Rogers looks really good. I love that cover. The Rape of Nanking looks like a tough read. Your post has also reminded me that I have had Les Miserables on my TBR for ages now. Great choices!
Under the Jolly Roger is fantastic! This is the book when Jacky becomes a (more) notorious pirate!
I love the Treasure Island cover! That’s a book I can’t believe I haven’t read yet.
This is good! I actually had trouble with fiction books and flags so I went rogue. lol I like your picks. Empire of the Sun is nice but I love that cover for Under the Jolly Roger! Wish I would have found it… 🙂
I love L.A. Meyers’s books. Under the Jolly Roger is the book when Jacky actually becomes notorious for being a pirate…and THE most-wanted pirate by the British Navy. Worth checking out!
I can’t think of any books that I’ve read that have flags on them, so I’ll have to check some of these out. 🙂
The only two I knew off the top of my head were the two pirate flag covers. Does that intrinsically say something about me? ^-^
I immediately thought of pirate flags when I saw the theme, so I’m glad you included some. 😀
How funny! I knew I wanted to include a pirate flag, too!
I also have Les Miserables and Empire of the Sun! Both such stunning reads. Under the Jolly Roger is the coolest cover though. Here’s my CC: http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2016/08/cover-characteristics-flags.html
I really thought I’d have a pirate book, but I didn’t have any with flags on the cover. 😦 Great picks!
