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’ve added themes in below. For information, I’m trying out some new ideas so along with coming up with particular items for book covers I thought we could also look for certain elements contained within the book or that play a large part in the story – this really broadens things out because I have plenty of more ideas with this – I’ve gone for a few of the Tough Travel Themes (so a book with that theme – just choose any book – the theme isn’t necessarily on the cover, then compare covers), also, I’ve thrown in some genres and some colours.  Hopefully this will open things out a little and give us some more freedom to come up with new books.

This week’s theme:

Fallen leaves – covers that are brown

I was definitely thinking of autumn and gardens and forests this week and I’m not entirely sure I’ve nailed it but the first cover has a kind of dark but still sunshiny feel which is often how I feel about autumn and the second cover feels quite brown(ish) so is it a cheat?  Anyway, to my shame I only read the first book in this series but I do really like this author so who knows, once I’ve developed my serum for immortality I’ll have time to read ALL THE BOOKS, and also, coincidentally catch up with all my lovely blogger blogs and maybe get back on track.  LOL.  The Six Gun Tarot by RS Belcher

Do you have a favourite.  Have you read this book yet – what do you think?

    I’ve loved this entire series and I’m glad you used The Six Gun Tarot, it makes me wish Belcher had a new book coming out😁

    I like that first cover too, and same with this series. I liked this book and never read the others, for whatever reason. The pirate themed one though. I do want to read

  3. WordsAndPeace

    That’s also my favorite, for the unity of color.
    There are not too many brown covers.
    I really wanted to post my 20 books of summer wrap today, so I didn’t participate – I try to not post more than once a day

    That one’s my favorite too, and I love the font.

    Agree with your choice. I’d have liked the third cover also, except that the cover is The Hangman card and I have zero clue on how it relates to the story!
