This week’s theme:

Hat “It is always cruel to laugh at people, of course, although sometimes if they are wearing an ugly hat it is hard to control yourself “

This week one book immediately sprang to mind and once I had it in my mind it had to be the one.  Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury.

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

This week’s theme:

Easter “The rabbit of Easter. He bring the chocolate”

Strangely enough I found myself with a number of possibilities for this one!  First thoughts were, of course, the white rabbit of Alice in Wonderland.  I also managed to find a book that had chocolate bunnies on the front which was a surprise and there were plenty of children’s books about the Easter bunny.  But I went with my second, and probably still obvious for me, choice:

Watership Down by Richard Adams

My favourite this week is the cover that really feels like the real ‘Watership Down’, it was also the book that I owned, I have no idea where it is now but I love this cover:

This week’s theme:

23rd December – The first noel… – a cover with angels

This week my choice is Angel by L A Weatherly:

my winner:

angel1

I like this one because whilst it’s trying to bring over the image of an angel there’s a lot of darkness to the cover too – maybe not as angelic as all would seem?

Which is your favourite??

30th December –  Ho ho ho! To the bottle I go… – a cover with drink

“But, oh, Mina, I love him; I love him; I love him!”

I like the gold on black – that being said I had a tough choice between this and the white cover because that guy on the cover looks like he’s super chilled!
