Top 5 Saturday is run by Amanda @ Devouring Books. Every week showcases 5 books that share a common theme. This week’s theme is Bones on the Cover.
Um, haha, none? I really had to dig and this was all I could come up with: 3 books with bones on the cover and 2 books that mention “bone” in the title. I guess I’m just not the bones on the cover kind of reader.
Eve by Patti Larsen
I read this a few years ago because I think it was published by the Kindle Scout program that now no longer exists and I received a copy of it because I nominated it? I think? I’m not sure, but it’s the only cover I vaguely remembered having bones on the cover.
Deadly Valentine by Carolyn G. Hart
This is the 6th book in the Death on Demand series. It’s been so long since I’ve read it, and I stopped reading the series over a decade ago, that I really had to dig deep through my books on Goodreads to come across this one. I don’t even think I have the book anymore. It’s a cozy mystery series centered around a married couple where he comes from money and she runs a bookstore. I think.
Soul Music by Terry Pratchett
It took a random perusal of my bookshelves to notice this one. I’ve read only a handful of the Discworld books, and it’s been well over a decade since I last picked one up. Yet I still have them because one day I want to pick them back up.
The Bone Ships by RJ Barker
Clearly, no bones on the cover, but it does mention “bone” and the ships are made from bones. The last book in this trilogy just came out at the end of September. Read this series if you’re prepared to be killed by three books. This first book is as lighthearted as it’s going to get.
The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart
Again, no literal bones, but the magic in this book involves actual bones. I loved this book mostly for the most adorable creature companion ever and I can’t wait for the next book to come out later this year.
