Thoughtful Thursday: Identify last month’s covers

Today’s covers all come from books we reviewed in December 2012. 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 you get it correct, you’ll be entered 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!

    #7 is Snuff, by Terry Pratchett.

    By the way, I won the Thoughtful Thursday of two weeks ago, the 10th of January, but I don’t know if my emails to Tim got through, because I twice got the message that I had something called “illegal characters” in my post. What that meant, I still don’t know, as I was fairly sure that I didn’t type anything out of the ordinary.

    Could have swore I had number 5! Now I’m digging through all your reviews looking. Which I guess is the point. :)

  10. Does the “guess again after a week” rule still apply?

  11. Here I am…guessing again after a week! :)

    #6 is The Steam Mole by Dave Freer

  12. Melanie Goldmund /

    #2 is White Wolf, by David Gemmell.

    When will we find out who won? It’s been more than two weeks already.

    • Correct!

      I think Tim usually chooses these on the Sunday after it’s been up a week which means he may have missed it this past Sunday. He’s busy with grad school decisions, I think. I’ll give him a nudge.

  13. And the winner is Michelle Miller!
    Michelle, please contact Tim with your choice and a US address.
