THE FRIDAY FACE-OFF #8: Gravestone


friday-face-off-2c1

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme here at Books by Proxy. Join me every Friday as I pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe.

Hey everyone! I’m joining in this new book meme called “The Friday Face-Off” which is hosted by Books by Proxy and this week’s theme is: GRAVESTONE!!!

For this week, I have chosen the cover for Neil Gaiman’s book “The Graveyard Book!” So, here are the covers!

 

Harper Collins – 2008

2213661

Bloomsbury – 2008

 

5499874

 

William Morrow Paperbacks – 2011

 

 

10434701

 

 

 

 

And the winner is…

 

 

2213661

Since this was the cover I got for this book, I loved this cover the best because it’s so beautiful and I just loved the way that the gravestone is in a swirling mist.

BOOK PHOTO SUNDAYS #37: May 13, 2018


Book Photo Sundays Logo

Hey everyone! I’m participating in this new meme called “Book Photo Sundays” which is hosted by Rabbit Ears Book Blog and the goal of this meme is to post up whatever book photos you had taken such as photos of your book hauls, library hauls, photos from book conventions or photos of you with a book!  You can take the photos from your Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or any other account where you keep your book photos!

Here’s my two photos for the week! The first photo is of a Stack Saturday book stack that has the Throne of Glass series and the Harry Potter series all rolled into one, along with a nice crown and sword!  The second photo is of the purple and white books I have.  Unfortunately, I don’t have many purple books, but I’m hoping to remedy that in the near future!

Hello everyone! WWW Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words and you just answer three questions and leave your links down below!

WWW What are you currently reading

I finally got started on “This Savage Song” by Victoria Schwab, which was a book I’ve been wanting to read for a long time and so far, it’s really interesting and I can’t wait to see what happens with Kate and August next!

WWW What did you recently finish reading

I just finished reading Immortal Flame by Jillian David, which was an ARC I received from Reading Alley and I can’t believe I hadn’t read this book when I first got it years ago!  It was such a fantastic read and I just loved the world that the characters lived in (such as people working as the devil’s hit men).  I also loved both characters Peter and Allison as they had one of the most interesting relationships I had ever seen in a paranormal romance novel!

WWW What do you think you'll read next

After I finish reading “This Savage Song,” I’m planning on reading the sequel “Our Dark Duet” by Victoria Schwab to see where Kate and August goes next!  The next book I wanted to read is  “Heartless” by Marissa Meyer, since that has been on my TBR list for awhile now and I wanted to read another book by Marissa Meyer! The last book I wanted to read is of course, “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” by Becky Albertalli, which has been on my shelf for many years now.  I especially want to read this book before I watch the movie “Love Simon” soon!

Hey everybody! I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer! The goal of this meme is to share news you have on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!

Hey everyone!  Well, the winter Olympics is still going on and I’ve been enjoying the ice skating and snowboarding tournaments the best!  Is anyone else still watching the Olympics and what are your favorite sports?  Meanwhile, on the Bookstagram front, I have been posting many new book photos on Instagram ever since I got more props for my book photos and they are looking pretty good!  Check out this week’s Book Photo Sundays to get a sneak peek at my current book photos!
