Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Airplanes

This post seems like the perfect time to share Fun Fact #1 about Kristen: I've been to 46 states in the US (plus a few nearby countries), and I've never been in a plane.

Crazy, right? Just cars and boats.

But anyway, airplanes was a hardย  topic for me to find covers for. There are a lot of war, historical, adventure, rescue mission type cover, but those aren't my kinda books, so I wanted something different. In the end, I think I managed a pretty colorful and diverse-looking range of covers :-)

Cover Characteristics is a weekly meme hosted at Sugar & Snark. This week’s topic is:

Books Covers featuring Airplanes

Flying Backwards by Jennifer W. Smith | books, reading, book covers
Night Planes by Patrick Link | books, reading, book covers
A Flying Affair by Carla Stewart | books, reading, book covers
The Flying Circus by Susan Crandall | books, reading, book covers
The Gift by Lorhainne Eckhart | books, reading, book covers

My favorite is A Flying Affair. There’s something about the way the picture and the font and the colors all work together so perfectly.


Talk to me!

Which book cover with airplanes is YOUR favorite?

    Woah, that is a lot of travelling without being on a plane!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been to 4 of the states in Australia, which isn’t THAT much, but our states are huge and I’ve been over ever cetimetre of 2 of them, hehe. ๐Ÿ˜›
    I love the planes on the cover of The Game of Love and Death! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

      My family was big on road trips lol. I’ve never been to Australia though because, you know, kinda hard to get there in a car from the US. I looked at the cover of The Game of Love and Death, and you’re right, it is pretty! It makes me think of Lost because one of the characters (Kate) had a little toy plane, but that’s really random, I know.
