Friday Face Off meme and Book Blogger Hop – March 13, 2020

Dear book-lovers,

It’s time for Friday Face Off. This meme was created by Books by Proxy and now is hosted by Lynn’s Books. Now let’s take a look at the rules: This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers. Each week, following a predetermined theme (list below) choose a book (this doesn’t have to be a book that you’ve read), compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite one out of them. Keep in mind that the themes are open to interpretation, so just enjoy yourself. This week’s theme: 

Exotic – ‘That which yields, is not always weak”– anything that represents something from distant lands.

For this theme I decided to go with a YA fantasy set in exotic and far away land The Star-Touched Queen Series by Roshani Chokshi. I haven’t read this series yet, but I own book one and two… One of the reasons I bought them was those super gorgeous covers.

The Star-Touched Queen / The Star-Touched Queen Serbian cover / A Crown of Wishes

Two novellas: Death and Night / Star-Touched Stories

And the winner of this Friday Face Off and my favourite cover is:

a crown of wishes

Which one of these five covers do you like the best?


Next week’s (March 20) theme is: Brown – a cover or covers that are brown

Future themes:
March 27 – Freebie – choose one of your favourite covers
April Fools 3 – a trick of the eye – a cover that is more than meets the eye
April 10 – Moody – a cover that is atmospheric,
April 17 – out of focus – double vision or all a blur
April 24 – Armour – “Pretty armour doesn’t make a warrior”


book blogger hopBook Blogger Hop, which was originally created by Jennifer @Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. It was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy @Coffee-Addicted-Writer . Each week the hop starts on Friday and ends the following Thursday. There is a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. March 13 – 19 the question submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews.

Question: Other than book reviews, what do you feature on your blog?

My answer: I have many other types of posts besides reviews, such as Book Blitzes, Cover Reveals, Blog Tours, Bookish Tags, Bookish Memes – WWW Wednesday, First Lines/Book beginnings on Fridays, The Friday 56, Friday Face Off, Book Blogger Hop (I’m considering also to do Can’t Wait Wednesday, and maybe Top10 Tuesday and Top5 Wednesday), Wrap Ups, New Releases monthly posts, Bookish lists, discussions and more. Soon Book of the Month, Book of the Week and Book Wars are coming on my blog, stay-tuned 😉


Thank you for visiting! Please let me know in comments, which one of these five covers is your favourite? Have you read Star-Touched Queen? And what type of posts do you have on your blog?

Happy reading,
Lady of Bookland

One thought on “Friday Face Off meme and Book Blogger Hop – March 13, 2020

  1. Crown of Wishes was the first book that popped into my head when I saw the topic, too! Both books have such gorgeous covers, don’t they? I haven’t looked at the other version covers, so it’s interesting to see the Serbian cover. It’s pretty, but not as pretty as the others, I don’t think. I agree that the Crown of Wishes cover is the best!
