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: DRAGONS!!!

For this week, I have chosen the cover for Brandon Mull’s Fablehaven series, “Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary.”   So here are some covers for this week:

Shadow Mountain – 2009    

5217282

 

 

Mizan Fantasi– 2012   

 

 

13424507

 

Aladdin– 2015   

 27777095

 

 

And the winner is…

 

 

5217282

This was easily the most creative and gorgeous cover out of all the other covers and I just loved the look of the multi headed dragon against a purple background!

I just finished reading “The Frog Prince” by Mike Klaassen last week as it was an ARC sent to me by Book Unleashed and I really enjoyed this book!  I loved the fact that it was a more expanded retelling of the original fairy tale and it actually developed the characters extremely well!

I’m still reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber and so far, it’s looking really good, especially once we are getting into the true mystery of Caraval and also look into Donatella’s sudden disappearance on the island.

Monday and Wednesday

In order to get into the spirit of Halloween, I want to read “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs since I had that book on my shelf for awhile now and this would be a great book to read for October!  The next book I want to read is “Me Before You” by Jojo Moyes which has been on my shelf for awhile now and I want to read this book before I actually see the movie. The last book I want to read is “The Martian” by Andy Weir since that was the winner of the TBR List book read for September and it’s another book I want to read before watching the movie.

THE FRIDAY FACE-OFF #5: Heart


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: HEART!!!

For this week, since we are a week away from October, I have decided to choose Edgar Allan Poe’s classic tale “The Tell-Tale Heart” in time for Halloween!  So here are some covers for this week:

 

Original Printing – 1843

 

 

16091727

 

Creative Education– 1980

 

899492

 

 

Spanish Version– 2013

27268307

 

And the winner is…

 

899492

 

This was another tough one this week!  All of these covers looked so awesome, but I ended up picking the 1980s version of the cover.  So creepy, especially the fact that the character on the cover is actually holding a real heart in his hands and I really loved the red coloring in the background that really brings out the creepy nature of this story!
