Cover Characteristics Swamps


Cover Characteristics is a meme by Sugar and Snark- every week a characteristic is selected and we post 5 books with that week's theme.   

This week's pick- Swamp

Swamp - a fun topic. I knew urban fantasy had some swamp covers but I found some others I was not expecting- including the recently released River of Teeth which is my clear favorite.

  1. Yay, I was hoping to scroll down and see those Nancy Drew covers. I'm not sure why I remember those so well but as soon as I read "swamp", those popped into my head. Fun topic!

  2. I think I like River of Teeth and Dead on the Delta the best but I have to admit, those old comic covers are downright awesome. Great post!

  3. I read Dinosaur Planet years ago but don't remember much about it now. I hated the characters in Dead in the Delta and hope to read River of Teeth later this year. Swamp covers are good covers! Eerie, creepy and you think something is lurking out there watching you...

  4. Love those comic covers. They'd be great pictures to hang on the wall! Did I miss your review of River Of Teeth? That was a wild one. And I like the cover for Red Planet too.

  5. Eeek swamps make me think of creepy crawlies! I'm glad there is a distinct lack of them here!

  7. Just finished River of Teeth this weekend! Definitely a good example of a cover with a swamp/marsh - those hippos sure love to wallow!

  8. Looove River of Teeth. I know I am going to end up reading it because it is so freaking weird. They're all quite interesting though, I am impressed that you found so many swamp covers!

  9. I don't particularly pay attention to covers but yes, River of Teeth has a gorgeous, very creative cover. Thanks for sharing these goodies, Greg. :)

  10. I couldn't really think of many swamp covers from the top of my head, but these are great! I also like the River of teeth one!

  11. Huh! I never would have figured so many! That's kinda neat. I think I have one that's a werewolves in Florida type thing. Dead on the Delta looks amazing!

    1. That would be good to have in HC. A lot of those Redwall books actually have pretty good covers if you ask me.

  15. I agree, River of Teeth has an awesome cover! Everything about that book sounds awesome, tbh. Dead on the Delta looks like the sort of book I'd be reading on a lazy Saturday night in....I may have to check that series out!

    1. I love that cover, it's so atmospheric! I wasn't going to read it initially, I just loved the cover, but now I want to read it. And Dead on the Delta does look like a good book to stay in and cozy up, doesn't it?

  16. Great choices! I couldn't come up with enough for a swamp post, although there is a Nancy Drew one or two that I can think of! Now I'm thinking I need to go ahead and go see if I can find them. Great picks! I love the Dinosaur Planet cover, even if it does just show all the incorrect theories they used to have about dinosaurs. :-)
