Thoughtful Thursday: Identify last month’s covers

Today’s covers all come from books we reviewed in October 2013. Once you identify a book cover, in the comment section list:

1. The number of the cover (1-12)
2. The author
3. The book title


Please identify just one cover that has not yet been identified correctly so that others will have a chance to play. If they’re not all identified by next Thursday, you can come back and identify more.

Each of your correct entries enters you into a drawing to win a book of your choice from our stacks. Winners are notified in the comments, so make sure to check the notification box or remember to check back in about 10 days.

Good Luck!

JOHN HULET (on FanLit's staff July 2007 -- March 2015) is a member of the Utah Army National Guard. John’s experiences have often left a great void that has been filled by countless hours spent between the pages of a book lost in the words and images of the authors he admires. During a 12 month tour of Iraq, he spent well over $1000 on books and found sanity in the process. John lives in Utah and works slavishly to prepare soldiers to serve their country with the honor and distinction that Sturm Brightblade or Arithon s’Ffalenn would be proud of. John retired from FanLit in March 2015 after being with us for nearly 8 years.

    I think I’m one of those people who really can’t stand to leave unanswered questions on the table. Probably why the hubs hates playing Trivial Pursuit with me! In any case, since nobody else is answering:
    #5 Crossed Blades by Kelly McCullough

  10. Me too, April!

    I’m going to venture out on a limb here. This one was really difficult, but I think #11 is The Extraordinaires by Michael Pryor.

    • ah. It seems that there are two covers for this book. This is probably from an earlier version we had. Yes, it’s the right book.
