Cover Characteristic (35): Train

Cover Characteristic (35): Train

Today I’m joining in with the Cover Characteristic meme hosted by Sugar and Snark.

Today’s cover characteristic is Marilyn Monroe. At first, this struck me as a difficult one because no book covers featuring Marilyn Monroe sprang to mind. But with a little digging on Goodreads I found these beauties: These are the ones that most appeal to me: This is a nice, simple cover that shows you what to expect. Marilyn is sitting in a chair as if she’s […]
