Friday Face Off : Books with ‘Murder’ in the title

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.

This week’s theme:

Books with ‘Murder’ in the title

Firstly, you may have noticed a lack of content on here recently, or the fact I’ve been somewhat missing – I haven’t taken a hiatus, I’m not burnt out – I’ve been travelling and seeing people, kind of catching up after all the isolation and lock down from Covid and it’s quite simply been busy.  So, I’m yet again behind both with reviews and blog hopping – apologies everyone.  I’m hoping to get back on track now after a funny couple of months.

So, books with ‘murder’ in the title.  I did have a few in mind for this one but I certainly didn’t want to go over again with books I have already used.  Instead I’ve gone for a fairly recent read that was a buddy read with Lisa at Way Too Fantasy – of course I was a bit of a washout even though I was enjoying the series!  Anyway.  The second book, A Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop (The Others #2).  Here are the covers:

 

My 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:
