Friday Face Off : ‘Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.’

FFO.jpg

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 – the list has been updated to help out those of you who like to plan ahead – 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. This week’s theme:

‘Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.’ – A cover featuring a monk/priest/person of the cloth

Ooh, this was a tough one.  I hope everyone else found this a bit easier than I did.  I thought of two books that might fit the theme but wasn’t really sure if I was stretching a little – Skullsworn by Brian Staveley – actually I think this would fit okay because the main character is undertaking an initiation test to become a priestess.  The other was Peter Brett’s the Warded Man – obviously the main character isn’t a religious character as such but as he undertakes his journey through the book to become ‘the Warded Man’ he does have that feel somehow – okay, I’m stretching.  The book I’ve chosen this week is The Exorcist (The Exorcist #1) by William Peter Blatty.  There were quite a number of covers for this one.  I’ve selected just a few.

The covers:

Some creepy covers this week.  I think my two favourites would be:

My favourite this week is:

Like last week I’ve added a Mr Linky here so that you can leave a link if you wish or please leave me a link in the comments so I can visit and check out your covers.  Thanks

I’ll be updating the list soon to take it through a few more months – if you have any suggestions you’d like to see adding then drop a note in the comments.  Thanks
