This weeks theme: A cover that is ‘noir’
Alright I have no idea what “Noir” means so I had to google it.
That still doesn’t help me much, so I tried googling “Noir Book Covers” and this is what I got:
Usually I try not to look at anyone’s Friday Face Off posts until I have written mine, but again I still don’t really know what “noir” means. Here are some covers that have been chosen by other bloggers this week:
So there seems to be a lot of old fashioned crime novel covers. (I think they are considered “pulp” covers) And a few newer books that seem to fall into the “cynicism, fatalism, and moral ambiguity” category.
My Choice: The Cruel Prince
I chose this book because it is the first thing that comes to mind when I think “cynicism, fatalism, and moral ambiguity” I don’t know if it technically fits the “Noir” category because it isn’t a crime novel, but I don’t think I have read any crime novels that fit the bill.

I just don’t like the throne. I think it is super ugly and not at all appealing as a book cover
I love this cover! I like the black background so much better than the white and I feel like it better reflects the story.
