‘What’s in a name? that which we call a rose’
Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme being hosted by Books by Proxy . This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers. The rules are fairly simple and can be found here. Each week, following a predetermined theme (list below) choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite (stop on over to Tenacious Reader to post your link so we can all check out each others choices). Simples. This week the theme is:
16th Sept: A bouquet for you m’lady – A cover featuring a flower/flowers.
Not as tricky as last week – I at least had a couple of ideas! Anyway, my choice this week is Beauty by Robin McKinley. A lovely retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairytale with plenty of covers to choose from:
And my winner:
Which is your favourite?
