Friday Face Off : The Cloisters by Katy Hays

FFO

Today is another Friday Face Off, originally created by Books by Proxy).  This is an opportunity to look at a book of your choice and shine the spotlight on the covers.  Of course this only works for those books that have alternative covers (although sometimes I use this to look at a series of books to choose a favourite). . So, if you have a book that has alternative covers, highlight them and choose your favourite.  If you’re taking part it would be great if you leave a link so I can take a look at what you’ve chosen.

My book this week is one that I read late last year, The Cloisters by Katy Hays a dark academia story packed with gothic(y) goodness.

Here are the covers:

My favourite this week is :

Cloisters2

Which is your favourite?

Again, this week as last, I like both of the covers so this was a tough choice – but I couldn’t resist the above when push came to shoe.

Join me next week in highlighting one of your reads with different covers.

Today is the second week of a new Friday Face Off  (a meme originally created by Books by Proxy) – similar in many ways to what came before but different going forward.  From 2023 I will no longer be posting prompts or themes to guide cover choices.  Instead, having noticed that many of my most recent reads have had more than one cover,  I thought instead it would be a change to highlight something that I’m keen to shine the focus on. So, if you have a book that has alternative covers, highlight them and choose your favourite.  If you’re taking part it would be great if you leave a link so I can take a look at what you’ve chosen.

My book this week The Drift by CJ Tudor. I’m loving this author’s work and this is no exception.  Really well done indeed.

Here are the covers:

My favourite this week is :

It’s really tough to choose a favourite this week because I really like both covers. At the end of the day it comes down to the simple fact that the red cover is so eye catching – it would definitely draw you in if you saw it on the bookshelf.

My book this week is another read that I enjoyed very recently.  How to Sell a Haunted House by Grady Hendrix.

Here are the covers:

My favourite this week is :

Howto2

I like both covers but this one appealed to me because I hadn’t realised this was a toy house inside a house – I just like that idea for some reason!  Which cover is your favourite?

My book this week is a very recent read that I enjoyed although it didn’t quite work out as well as I’d expected.  That being said I would recommend it, it was intriguing but had slight pacing issues in the middle.  The House in the Pines by Ana Reyes.

Here are the covers:

My favourite this week is :

Pines2

Friday Face Off : Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries

Today is the start of a new Friday Face Off  (a meme originally created by Books by Proxy) – similar in many ways to what came before but different going forward.  From 2023 I will no longer be posting prompts or themes to guide your cover choices.  Instead, having noticed that many of my most recent reads have had more than one cover,  I thought instead it would be a change to highlight something that you’re keen to shine the focus on. So, from today onwards come up with one of your reads that has alternative covers, highlight them and choose your favourite.  If you’re taking part it would be great if you leave a link so I can take a look at what you’ve chosen.

This week the book I’ve chosen was one of the very last books that I crammed into the end of the year and I loved it, it even made my favourites list of the year.  I’ve not posted a review yet but that will soon be happening.  For now, let’s take a look at the book, and more importantly the covers.

Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries (Emily Wilde #1) by Heather Fawcett.  

Here are the covers:

These are all lovely covers.  The last cover is the one I’m must familiar with and it is a gorgeous cover that really drew my eye.  However,  my favourite this week is :

Emily1

The reason I’ve chosen this one, apart from it’s a beautiful design of course, but at the same time if you look closely enough it clearly makes reference to some of the darker elements in the story, and given this is a book about tricksy fae, I like that this one has a more ominous feel.

Which cover is your favourite?
