Cover Characteristic: Sunglasses

Hosted by Sugar & Snark

Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite cover’s with that characteristic. 

Book Title:: Lolita
Author:: Vladimir Nabokov
Why I Picked It:: There's something interesting about this cover. Well, more like disturbing, but  still eye-catching. It conveys youth with sexual maturity perfectly.
Where To Find It:: Add to Goodreads & Buy on Amazon

Book Title:: Pish Posh
Author:: Ellen Potter (Facebook | Twitter)
Why I Picked It:: It's just so cute! I love the expression.

Book Title:: That Summer
Author:: Sarah Dessen (FacebookTwitter)
Why I Picked It:: I like the "captured moment" aspect of this cover. To me it coveys something really nostalgic; almost like the past is looking at you through the glasses.
Where To Find It:: Add to Goodreads & Buy on Amazon

Book Title:: Young, Gifted and Dead (St Jude's Academy, Book #1)
Author:: Lucy Carver
Why I Picked It:: A cover within a cover done in such an interesting way. I'm not sure if the girl alone would have caught my eye. But— the scene within the sunglasses makes the cover amazing. The ultimate representation of predator and its prey.

Title: Oh Yeah, Audrey!
Genres: YA, Realistic Fiction
Author: Tucker Shaw (Twitter)
Format: Paperback
Length: 359 pages
Release Date: October 14, 2014

It’s 5:00 a.m. on Fifth Avenue, and 16-year-old Gemma Beasley is standing in front of Tiffany & Co. wearing the perfect black dress with her coffee in hand—just like Holly Golightly. As the cofounder of a successful Tumblr blog—Oh Yeah Audrey!—devoted to all things Audrey Hepburn, Gemma has traveled to New York in order to meet up with her fellow bloggers for the first time. She has meticulously planned out a 24-hour adventure in homage to Breakfast at Tiffany’s; however, her plans are derailed when a glamorous boy sweeps in and offers her the New York experience she’s always dreamed of. Gemma soon learns who her true friends are and that, sometimes, no matter where you go, you just end up finding yourself.

Filled with hip and sparkling prose, Oh Yeah, Audrey! is as much a story of friendship as it is a love letter to New York, Audrey Hepburn, and the character she made famous: Holly Golightly.

Why I Picked It: Such an amazing cover inspired by an amazing woman. Audrey Hepburn is a fashion icon and someone I have always loved. This is a spot-on perfect interpretation of one of her most inspiring characters, Holly Golightly. Plus, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of my favorite movies. I could watch her singing Moon River anytime...

Oh Yeah, Audrey!
