Bout of Books 7.0 Update

May 15, 2013

Bout of Books day 3 is upon us!  I’ve finished two books (one of which I started last week).  I hosted a giveaway yesterday!  And I’ve got winners!  Emails have been sent!
My winners are: Kay from It’s a Booklife, P7 from Bookeater/Booklover, and Lisa from Lisa Likes Books

There’s a very cool challenge up today over on Books Are My Best Friends Forever.  It’s a challenge to create an alternate cover for a book.  I love it, but I have no photo manipulation skills so, I’m not going to indulge.  I will, however, give you a few publisher created alternate covers.

smokeboneThis, on the left, is the American cover of Daughter of Smoke and Bone.  I don’t especially like it.  I don’t think the mask is photoshopped on very well.  And why is there a feather mask at all?  What is that even about.
Blue hair – yes.
Wings – yes.
Random blue feathered mask – not so much.
On the other hand, we have what I believe is the UK cover.  That one is totally awesome!  The feathers are just perfect.

chatkatNow, we all know how much I love the Kat, Incorrigible covers.  I think they’re awesome and beautiful.  And they’re full wrap-around, which makes me happy.  So, I’m not saying that the other cover is better.  But seriously, look at this amazing French cover!  It’s so awesome.  I really want to own it.  Possibly as a poster.

    You’re doing really well with the reading so far! And I liked your take on the book cover challenge. I haven’t read Daughter of Smoke and Bone yet, but that feathers cover is a good one. Is it the UK hardback cover? The UK paperback cover has a door on it (not sure if that has anything to do with the story, but it is quite an intriguing image!).

    Good luck with today’s reading! 🙂
