Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink!


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:

Ocean “What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams”

This week’s choice is: Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor:

 And my winner is:


I think this is a great cover.  Your eye is drawn immediately to the young female who seems to be suspended in water and surrounded by tentacles – then you realise the city depicted along the top seems to be being swamped in some sort of tidal fury!

Which is your favourite?

Next week’s theme:

Clown “Nobody likes a clown at midnight”

    Yes, definitely that one! 🙂

    Yep, that’s my favorite of the bunch.

      I think it’s because it’s the one I’m most familiar with – but it is a good cover.

    I liked the other Lagoon cover myself..

      I think for me it’s just a simple case of seeing one particular cover more than the others – I was hypnotised!!

    I loved this book! I love the cover you chose, but I also love the 3rd and 4th covers:-D

      This is a book that I need to give a second chance to! I started to read it and kind of give up (*hangs head in shame!) I will give it another go though as everyone seemed to love it so I figure I was just feeling in an odd mood or something.

    I like the second one, with the cluster of bubbles rising to the surface and the one big, perfect bubble above, hinting at something mysterious… 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I liked that one two but the first is the one I’m familiar with and so I think it just grew on me!

    This is a great cover – I haven’t yet read the book, but I’ve heard many good things about it. I agree with your choice and thank you – I’ve now got hold of the list of Friday Face-off topics for the first half of the year:). Looking forward to tracking down some likely covers!

    That’s my favorite of the covers too. Fabulous artwork 🙂

      Thanks – it’s the one that automatically springs to mind for me.
