Friday Face Off: A turquoise cover

Friday Face Off

The Friday Face-Off was originally created by Books by Proxy:
each Friday, bloggers showcase book covers on a weekly theme.
Visit Lynn’s Books (@LynnsBooks) for a list of upcoming themes.
Please visit also Tammy at Books, Bones & Buffy (@tammy_sparks)
thanks to whom I discovered this meme.

📚 📚 📚 

This week, the theme is
“Sparkling like the sea – a cover that is turquoise”

I didn’t find a whole turquoise cover in the books I have read, but at least this is the main accent color in this one:

Before the Coffee Gets Cold

If you click on the link, you will find the questions prepared by Julie Anna at Julie Anna’s Books for our buddy read of Before the Coffee Gets Cold, with links to our answers and questions for the various parts of the book. A wonderful read!

Friday Face Off Turquoise cover

I ended up selecting the Hungarian edition for my favorite.
I like that it really focuses on the coffee cup, with the movement of the coffee alluding for me to the changes that happened in the people who decided to try that coffee.

Have you read this book?
Next Friday:
“So pretty – exactly what it says”

  1. I like that cover. The first one, but the second one also grabs me, I almost have a retro Americana vibe from it- not sure even why? The third one though is interesting, and the sixth one with the coffee I like…

  3. I don’t think I ever took the opportunity to look at alternate covers when we read this! I do like the covers that show the chair and tables since it embodies the simplicity of the cafe, despite its magic. But I’m finding myself drawn to the third cover – I feel like it represents the everyday lives of the people that visit and their stories.
