Feature Friday: The Art of the Discworld

All this week I've been taking part in the #GollanczFest Challenge; a daily photo challenge to ultimately win a lot of books. At the end of the week, I'll provide you all with a write up, including my pictures and my reasoning behind my choices. Today's part of the challenge was "Your favourite signed book".

Feature Cover Friday

Dracula by Bram Stoker

It's almost Halloween, so of course this week's Feature Cover Friday has to be something creepy! And so I've chosen my particularly creepy edition of Bram Stoker's Dracula. This book is covering so many bases for me this month! Firstly and most importantly it was this month's Book Club read (we're meeting up on the first Saturday of November… Continue reading Dracula by Bram Stoker

Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor

For this week's Feature Cover Friday I've chosen Jodi Taylor's Just One Damned Thing After Another.  I picked up this book at an event at Llandeilo Book Fair with Jodi Taylor and Jasper Fforde in conversation. It's quite a striking cover; I like the simplistic colour theme yet there's plenty of detail going on in there… Continue reading Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor

East of the Sun, West of the Moon by Jackie Morris

I managed to completely forget last week's Feature Cover Friday! Whoops! This week, I've chosen to feature Jackie Morris' East of the Sun, West of the Moon - because how absolutely gorgeous is Morris' artwork?! The way the cover has separated the title and author name from the image itself is bold and takes any distraction… Continue reading East of the Sun, West of the Moon by Jackie Morris

The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro

Friday has snuck up on me again, so here's this week's Feature Cover Friday: The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro Regular readers of my feature Friday posts will know I love simplistic covers. There's a vagueness about this cover that mirrors the quality of the story. My particular copy is quite different to others out… Continue reading The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro

The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie

For this week's Front Cover Friday, I've chosen Joe Abercrombie's The Blade Itself.  There isn't anything particularly eye catching about this cover. There are no mysterious figures, no hints of what the story may contain (except the blood splatters of course... There's a lot of blood being splattered in the book). The reason I chose to… Continue reading The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by Neil Gaiman

Welcome to Front Cover Friday! This week I've chosen Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane. It's an intriguing cover, it draws you down the lane and echoes the ephemeral magic quality of the story itself. As always, I love a cover where there's not too much going on; and this one is graceful… Continue reading The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by Neil Gaiman
