Nomad is an Island: The Friday Face Off #RRSciFiMonth


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 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.   Future week’s themes are listed below. This week’s theme:


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

You may have seen on recent posts that November is Sci Fi 2016 which is an event that celebrates all things sci fi.  So, I’m using my weekly memes to highlight sci fi novels.  For the theme this week I’ve chosen: I am Legend by Richard Matheson.  This book is perfect for this week’s theme because of course the main character really is by himself!


plus the first edition cover:


And the winner:


I had to go with the scary cover!  I just couldn’t help it – even though it doesn’t necessarily fit in with the theme!

Which is your favourite??

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

11th November -Falling off the rails – a cover with train tracks

18th November – The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet day – a cover with stormy weather

25th November – As old as the hills?? – A cover with mountains

2nd December – Oranges and lemons say the bells of St Clements – A cover with fruit

9th December – Soul Meets Soul on Lovers’ Lips – a cover with lips

16 December – Give a Girl the Right Shoes and she can conquor the world – a cover with shoes

23rd December – The first noel… – a cover with angels

30th December –  Ho ho ho! To the bottle I go… – a cover with drink

    I love the one you picked too. I think I have a copy of that edition somewhere!

  2. Drew @ TheTattooedBookGeek

    Totally agree with your cover choice and high praise for picking this amazing book!😀

    I like the Will Smith cover.

      I do too – surprisingly, because I don’t normally like movie tie-in covers – plus, I think the Will Smith movie was really good but I really wish they hadn’t changed the ending!

    Your winning cover is so horrifically horrible for me, I’m not sure I could have it in the house with me! 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – everyone is finding that cover creepy! I love it though.

  5. Avada Kedavra

    I love the one you picked too and it is such a creepy cover. 😀

    “May the best fangs win”, indeed… 😀 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Indeed – and ‘fangs’ for stopping by – okay, I’ll just stop now…

  7. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    What a cool choice, and I liked how you incorporated sci-fi month. While most of the time I can appreciate a scary cover, I don’t know when it comes to your winner. I can’t imagine waking up in the middle of the night to that skull thing staring at me from my book pile on my nightstand 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah – that is a creepy cover, but I just love it!
      Lynn 😀
