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:

Plane “When everything seem to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it ….”

Again this week, I had a book in mind so it worked out fairly easy for me: The Three by Sarah Lotz which I loved:

Next week – Mice

Future themes:

26/05/2017 – Mice “Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, ‘it might have been’…”

02/06/2017 – Moon “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars”

09/06/2017 – Mummy “It shuffles through the dry, dusty darkness”

16/06/2017 – Guitar “You couldn’t not like someone who liked the guitar”

23/06/2017 – Cat “In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this”

30/06/2017 – Hat “It is always cruel to laugh at people, of course, although sometimes if they are wearing an ugly hat it is hard to control yourself “

07/07/2017 – Gold “All that is gold does not glitter”

14/07/2017 – Boats “The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea, in a beautiful pea green boat…”

21/07/2017 – Planet “Any planet is ‘Earth’ to those who live on it”

    I can’t believe I haven’t read this yet…one book I’m going to catch up with no matter what. And I agree with your pick, Lynn. Very atmospheric:-)

    • @lynnsbooks

      She’s such a good author – she’s on my automatic pick up list now I think – particularly after reading The White Road which I loved.
      Lynn 😀

    Oh, I think it’s a no-brainer this week – I’m with you. You get the strong sense that plane’s journey isn’t going to end taxi-ing safely to a halt on some tarmac… nice choice Lynn:)

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yep, you definitely get that feeling – enough to put you off flying!
      Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        Yes… especially after my set of rather grim covers!

    We are definitely in sync this week. Same book and same winner! I love the US cover, it’s so ominous.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Me too – this was the first book that came to mind -in fact it was the only book. Next week I have at least two already in mind.
      Lynn 😀

        Ah I had a couple more books I could have chosen for this week, but this one had the most interesting covers 🙂 The other two were Departure and Underground Airlines.

  4. Carmen

    That’s my favorite too!

    I really love the first cover – it’s so dramatic! But from reading Mogsy’s post and seeing all the similar tally covers I have to go for the other! Love those dramatic, ominous clouds and the silhouetted plane against the lit sky. Very atmospheric! 😀

  6. jessicabookworm

    I’m not sure I can pick between these covers! 😀
