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??

If you fancy joining in with the FFO the themes for the next week is below.  

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!”

19th August: “The blood is life… and it shall be mine!”- a cover which features ‘blood’

My book this week is Bram Stoker’s Dracula – this is a classic novel and as such there are many, many, many covers!  I stopped at 9…  here they are with all their blood red imagery:

Drac1drac2drac3drac4Drac5drac6drac7drac8drac9

This week is a difficult one to choose.  I actually really like the 3rd cover – it is very ominous!  But my winner is the very simple:

drac4

goodomens1

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!

Shrouded in black, in morals I do lack – A cover featuring a character wearing a hood or cowl.

This week’s book is The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.  I thought there were a lot of covers last week but this week was just silly – basically I stopped looking as it was getting ridiculous.  So, my covers are:

My favourite is the last cover – I love the autumn feel and the colours – plus the character is wearing a hood (so it’s appropriate!) and he’s carrying his musical instrument so really ties in with the story.  Lots of great covers to choose from them and some of them very dark and moody.

Lady in red…

Lady in Red

A cover which features a female character in red

This week my book is Fire by Kristin Cashore.  This was No.2 in the Graceling Realm series and was my favourite book.  Here is the cover:

For me, this week, there is simply no contest.  The woman, with the dramatic background and the swirling red dress – oh yes, that’s the one for me.  Everything about that cover is gorgeous.  The Font, the placement of the font, name and central character, the ominous background (with maybe a hint of light) and the female, poised, ready.  the undoubted winner for me:

Fire
