Friday Face Off: Castles in the sky!


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.  This week’s theme:

14th October: There was once a princess, who lived in the top of the highest tower – a cover with a castle.

And, my choice this week is The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance #1) by N K Jemisin

Some very different covers this week.  My winner is:


Which is your favourite?

If you fancy joining in with the FFO the themes for the next few weeks are below.  

21st October: ‘There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home: a cover with a house/abandoned house

28th October – ‘And I Jack, The Pumpkin King’! – a cover for Halloween

4th November – Nomad is an island – a cover with a wanderer

    An absolutely marvellous choice of book this week Lynn well played, the same as mine, great minds think a like! 🙂

    The second cover is peculiar, since it avoids the “castle in the mists” theme adopted by the others: very, very mysterious!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, not quite sure what was going on with that particular cover.
      Lynn 😀

    I love the second one in the second row – just something about those pinks and purples that really appeal to me!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It is a nice cover – I kept checking it out myself!
      Lynn 😀

    I really like the cover you’ve chosen and the first one on the second row 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Good choice! They’re all similar covers but some just really stand out.
      Lynn 😀

    These are all fabulous covers – except for the second one, which is just bizarre, given the subject matter in the book. But I’m with you – I think the first cover absolutely nails it:). It’s an ideal choice for the subject, too!

    • @lynnsbooks

      The second one is a very strange choice. I love the first cover – probably because of association and it’s the book I read.
      Lynn 😀

    I agree with your choice, plus I also like #4 in the first row.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Some of these covers really do manage to stand out – even though, mostly, they’re very similar!
      Lynn 😀
