Friday Face Off: Triple whammy! ‘This solitary thing: a living tree’
Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme created 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. I missed the last two weeks so I’ve done a quick catch up :
23rd Sept: Wee, sleekit, cow’rin, timorous beastie – A cover with a beast or beasts.
I have to go for the second cover with this one – although I think the first one is quite chilling somehow. The second cover gives me a laugh out loud pantomime moment – I want to shout out to the girl ‘it’s behind you!’
30th Sept: This solitary tree! A living thing – a cover with a tree or trees.
This one is more difficult. I actually want to go for the second cover because this is what most of the books that I own by Gaiman are styled like – and I do like this style. I also like the blue cover with the tree – and I don’t think I’d seen that cover before. Difficult to choose between those two for me.
This week’s theme:
Consumed by the darkness within, it hides all our sins” a cover that is predominantly black.
The two black ones are very similar but my winner:
Which is your favourite?
