‘Mirror, mirror, on the wall…’


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:

 Snap! – a cover featuring a double image or reflection

This week I’ve chosen Sisters Red (Fairytale Retellings #1) by Jackson Pearce:


There’s definitely a theme going on here!  My favourite, just for the striking colours of the cover:


Which is your favourite?

Next week – a cover featuring snow

Future themes:

24th November 2017 – ‘I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently’ – a cover featuring snow

1st December 2017 – The pen is mightier than the sword – a cover featuring a fancy font

8th December 2017 – ‘Do not go gentle’ – a cover featuring the night…

15th December 2017 – Hubble bubble toil and trouble – a cover featuring a portion/perfume bottle

    Stunning, the one you have chosen. Did you like the book? I am looking for some good retellings.

      I did like it – it was quite a while ago when I read it but my remaining impressions are YA and not with the usual gorgeous were-creatures – they were smelly and really quite nasty beasts. Not sure how I’d feel about it now as I’ve kind of gone off YA a little but I do recall enjoying it. Sarah Pinborough did three excellent short books – Poison/Beauty/Charm – they’re twisted retellings that mash up quite a number of different tales into the series.
      Lynn 😀

        I will check them out. Thanks! smelly and nasty beasts hahaha.

      • @lynnsbooks

        Definitely not the sort of beasts that it is intended you fall in love with! No sparkly vampires or hench wolverines.
        Lynn 😀

        😀 sounds exciting!

      • Anindita@A Bohemian Mind at Work

        I am enjoying Sarah Pinborogh’swork. Thanks for the recommendations, Lynn.

      • @lynnsbooks

        No worries – I love her books.

    I agree, though I also like the third one on top.

    Sisters Red was my favorite as well

    I love your book choice, Lynn – what a stunning collection of covers. Though I’m going to go all old fashioned and a tad girlie on you – I prefer that beautiful Red4 in the forest. The detail and the fact you cannot see their faces nails it for me…

    • @lynnsbooks

      Nothing wrong with a bit of old fashioned and ‘girlie’ – tbh these covers are all pretty good.
      Lynn 😀

  6. Friday Face-Off: Double Image or Reflection | Perfectly Tolerable

    […] I found this weekly meme over on The Bibliosanctum.  It looks super fun so I figured I would give it a shot!  It looks like the original creator was Books by Proxy, but it is now kept going by Lynn’s Book Blog. […]

    I like your choice, as well as the first one!
