Friday Face Off : Chaos

FFO

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 (this doesn’t have to be a book that you’ve read), compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.   Future’s themes are listed below – 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.  I’ve also listed events that take place during the year, that I’m aware of, so you can link up your covers – if you’re aware of any events that you think I should include then give me a shout.

I just would mention that I’ve not been very active blog hopping this week.  I have a problem with the internet and have someone due out to try and fix things in the next couple of days.  I’ve been managing to post by simply using my mobile data but it runs out so quickly so I’m being careful.  Anyway, hopefully, fingers crossed, wi-fi will be back to normal shortly.

This week’s theme:

Chaos – maybe too much going on in this one?

Okay, I’ve gone for a cover that I really like for this theme which seems contradictory.  Veil of the Deserters is the second book in the Bloodsounder’s Arc series by Jeff Salyard.  I haven’t read this one yet even though I really enjoyed the first and do own a hard copy of this one.  The cover I was recalling is crazily chaotic and really stands out.  There are only two covers for this one.  Take a look:

My favourite:

Veil1

I just love it – the colours, all the action, there’s such a lot going on here but in a good way.

Do you have a favourite?

I’ve updated the list now to include themes for next year.  If you know of an event that’s coming up let me know and I’ll try and include covers that work for the event itself so that you can link up to the Friday Face Off and, as always, if you wish to submit an idea then leave me a comment – or if you’d like to host a week then simply let me know.  Also, I would just mention that it’s very possible that some of these might be repeats from previous FFOs although I have tried to invent more ‘open ended’ prompt that can be interpreted differently and also prompts that relate to emotions.  Finally, don’t struggle with any of these, this is meant to be a fun way of highlighting books.  If you can’t come up with a book you think fits for a particular week use a freebie – perhaps a recent read for example:

    This one is very chaotic! I love both but I always go for color, so the first is my favorite too😁

    I love this series! And I have to agree with you there.

    This is the first time I’m hearing about this book! Is this medieval/ Arthurian SFF (coz I love those)? And agree with your cover choice, it really stands out~
