“Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars.”


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:

Moon “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars”

This week the first book that sprang to mind was Moon Called, the first of Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series:


Next week – ‘Mummy’

Future themes:

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 like the original, familiar design as well. What’s weird is that I’ve looked at this cover for years, and only recently did I notice the nice touch of the wolves on the gates!

      Me too – I was drawn to them because I thought at first it was Mercy’s hair blowing or something and it just drew my eye.

    Having not read the book, I can’t comment out which cover suites the story, but I would agree the covers that have the woman with the gate and moon behind look the best.

      There are some strange covers for this book – a couple of the ones here look like they’re trying to be scary – I wouldn’t call these books scary – I mean they have their moments but they’re definitely not horror.

    I like the first cover in the second row (German edition?): the motif of the howling wolf on the gate is amazing, and for a moment it prevented me from noticing the red eyes in the background….

    I like the French cover too.

    Sorry I’m sooo behind in responding – I fell horribly behind over the week-end. I LOVE your book choice – it is spot on and yes… I’m with you – I love the fifth cover with the gates and the red eyes – very creepy and atmospheric, but your favourite is a very close second:). I was all set to go with a mother next week – until I noticed the Proxy stipulates mummification. At least there are plenty books around that fall into that category. Have a great week, Lynn.
