However, some of the ones I did find I really love, so it worked out in the end.
As for snakes in general, I feel like they're a common fear, right? I've never had an issue with snakes though. Granted I don't want random, wild snakes crawling on me, but the ones they let you hold at zoos and whatnot are awesome.
Are any of my readers afraid of snakes? Do any of my readers have *pet* snakes?! Let me know, I'm curious now :-)
Now for the covers!

Book Covers featuring Snakes
Baby Please Don’t Go by Frank Freudberg
Black and red, need I say more?
The Snake by Michael Grant
This one looks intense!
The Andalucian Friend by Alexander Soderberg
I like the faded, stamp-y look.
The String Diaries by Stephen Lloyd Jones
It’s simple, but I like the string and crumpled paper look.
Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi
It’s just pretty.
Cursed by Lizzy Ford
I like the red, and I like how dark the book and cover look.
Fractured Darkness by Morgan Wylie
I like the art and the Medusa vibe.
Snake in the Grass by Staci Hart
I always love black and white with color splash, and I just like the picture.
My Favorite #1:
Unsympathetic Magic by Laura Resnick
This cover is GORGEOUS. I swear every time I fall in love with a cover and look up the artist, it’s Dan dos Santos. This is my favorite cover style, and he is a book cover god. So of course this is one of my favorites.
My Favorite #2:
Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke
I love the black background and THAT FONT and the little smattering of colorful randomness in the background. All together, it is so pretty.
