THE FRIDAY FACE-OFF #8: Gravestone


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


Bloomsbury – 2008




William Morrow Paperbacks – 2011








And the winner is…




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!
