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. This week’s theme:

Cat “In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this”

This week was much better than the previous two weeks which I did struggle with  – this week I actually had a few books to choose from but eventually went for Holly Black’s Curse Worker series – a series I enjoyed, in fact I’ve pretty much enjoyed everything I’ve read by Holly Black – which makes me think I need to go read The Darkest Part of the Forest soon:

My favourite this week is, probably unsurprisingly the cover I’m most familiar with:

 Guitar “You couldn’t not like someone who liked the guitar”

I thought last week was tough but this week’s took the biscuit!  I’ve gone for one of Charles DeLint’s Newford books – Trader.  I haven’t read this one but it fits the theme and it does sound really good.  Have any of you read this one?  Do you recommend it?

What an unusual bunch of covers – all of them are so very different.  Surprisingly, the cover with the character playing the guitar is my favourite and makes me very curious:

This week I had a few possibles but I decided to go with The Mummy by Anne Rice.  I haven’t actually read this book but …. that’s the way it crumbles.  Here are the covers:

And my favourite:

Mice “Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, ‘it might have been’…”

This week the first book that sprang to mind was Mice and Men – but, in spite of the title I’m not sure there are any mice on the covers.  I knew there were mice on the cover of Hitchhikers Guide but the book that really jumped out to me was Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.
