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 “All things fire – red hair, red covers, fire breathing dragons, simply fire?“.
Fire made me think right away of this great classic dystopia Fahrenheit 451, which I read it a few decades ago.
Another book I more recently read by Ray Bradbury was unusual and so good. Unusual actually only if you associate this author with science-fiction, but believe it or not, he began as an author of crime fiction. This collection of his crime fiction short stories is just excellent, as my ecstatic review tries to show: Killer Come Back to Me.
Here are a few covers from around the world.
Which one is your favorite? Why?
To zoom on the covers on a computer, right click and choose “Open image in new tab”,
then you can zoom as needed.
My favorite cover is the 2nd (Hardcover, March 28, 2013 by Harper Voyager, ISBN 9780007491568), because of the artistic representation of the fire, with its different shades. That’s seen by the painter in me.
HAVE YOU READ THIS BOOK?
WHAT DID YOU THINK?
WILL YOU JOIN ME IN THIS MEME?
Next week doesn’t inspire me,
so my next participation will be on January 7:
“A top 10 read of 2021”
