Thoughtful Thursday: Identify Last Month’s Covers

Today’s covers all come from books we reviewed in July 2012. 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 stacks.


Please just identify one cover that has not been correctly identified so far. That way, others will have a chance to play. Make sure to check back to see if you won! Good Luck!

Next week: Nancy Holzner has a question for you (and a book).

JUSTIN BLAZIER (on FanLit's staff September 2009 – September 2012) Like many fantasy enthusiasts, Justin cut his teeth on Tolkien. Due to lack of space, his small public library would often give him their donated SFF books. Justin lives in a small home near the river with his wife, their baby daughter, and Norman, a mildly smelly dog. He doesn't have much time for reviewing anymore, but he still shows up here occasionally to let us know how he feels about stuff.

  12. Dang it.! I only know Thieftaker (9) and it’s been ID’d. I recognized 7 as well because it’s the one where we “retitled” it, but someone already guessed it. Oh well. Close shave and all that.

  13. Still unidentified: 2, 10, 11, 12

    Are we allowed to do more than one?

    #10 – www:wonder by Robert Sawyer

  16. Assuming it is safe to comment again after a week, I will say that #11 looks to be Sharps by KJ Parker.

  17. well, if we can do more than one after a week, I would say #12 is Albert of Adelaide by Howard L. Anderson

  18. April V. /

    And the last one, #2 is Minority Council, Kate Griffin (I think)
