Thoughtful Thursday: Identify the covers Oct-Nov 2011

Okay, we’re trying to get this right. Some of our identify the cover art contests have been too easy, but when we tried to make them harder, they were too hard. So here’s what we’ll try this time: Today’s covers all come from books we reviewed in the last few weeks — since October 1. That will narrow things down drastically and will perhaps induce you to catch up on any recent reviews you’ve missed. Once you identify a book cover, in the comment section list the number of the cover (1-12), the author, and the book title. If you get it correct, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a book of your choice from our teetering stacks.


Please just identify one cover that has not been correctly identified so far. That way, others will have a chance to play. Thanks and Good Luck!
