Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but kept up by Lynn’s Book Blog.

This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers. The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined list, choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.

This weeks theme

 “The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.”  – A cover for a mystery novel

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo is a mystery crime novel. ☃️ I was a little surprised at how many book covers and in different languages are published. I probably shouldn’t be but once again, I have not inserted all the covers because some of them are variants of the same.

For me personally, I like,
#18 the Arabic cover(?)
#1 mass market paperback with the cutout snowman. It’s a classic.
#11. The Ukrainian Snowman. It’s mean but cute 🙂 ☃️ Those are my top 3 picks.

Which cover do you like best?

    Wow! What a fantastic choice – and what a good pick for a mystery book:). I think I have to go with no. 16 – the bloody snowman with the shadow of the man standing over it is both clever and eye-catching. As for no. 11 – he is cute, isn’t he?

    Brilliant choice of book – and I had no idea it had somany covers. I also like the bloody snowman that Sarah mentions, I like the use of the shadow.

  3. I don’t really have a favorite this week, though number 11 is leaping out at me! A snowman with an attitude, whoa!
