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 – the list has been updated to help out those of you who like to plan ahead – if you have a cover in mind that you’re really wanting to share then feel free to leave a comment about a future suggested theme. This week’s theme:

“..the children of the night. What music they make!” – a cover with a vampire

I think there should be lots to choose from with this week’s theme.  I’ve gone for a YA series that I read way back and enjoyed at the time, it was very light and fun, a bit Buffy(ish) maybe.  Glass Houses (The Morganville Vampires #1) by Rachel Caine.

And the covers:

My favourite this week is the goth girl cover because it particularly suits one of the characters:

GH1

Like last week I’ve added  a Mr Linky here so that you can leave a link if you wish or please leave me a link in the comments so I can visit and check out your covers.  Thanks

Next week – A cover featuring a hero

    I like the one you chose but also the cover of the young woman with blood-red hair and blood stains.

  2. Tammy

    I love the edition you picked, I believe I have a paperback with that cover!

  3. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    I’m drawn to the second one in the fourth row. Gotta love the attitude! This is also a book I have been meaning to read.
