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:

Something from the horror genre

This cover fits with the first book in the series and I love the colours and the creeping darkness looming above.

    The third cover in the first row is *terrifying*. Just enough to drive one never to take another bath and turn to showers for the rest of their life… 😉

    I’m loving the third cover on the top row – it’s clearly what happens when we don’t clean our baths or unblock our drains properly and whatever lives in there becomes animated:)).

      Oh my, what an awful thought – I must go and look at the drains!

      I know, and I think Sarah has come up with the outline for a very scary story.

    Nice choice for horror novel, I like the turquoise theme for a lot of these too!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, the colours are really nice, which makes them more shocking in a way.
      Lynn 😀
