“I used that black magical elixir as amulet against all bad things and thoughts for that day. On the other hand, it was a liquid talisman for everybody else, to save them from being strangled by me.”
This weeks theme: A cover featuring an Amulet
My Choice: The Thief
I haven’t read this book, so I don’t know if it is actually an amulet (since an amulet is supposed to be “an ornament or small piece of jewelry thought to give protection against evil, danger, or disease”) but it sure looks like an amulet so it works!

I’m not gonna lie, I don’t love any of these covers. I am not a huge fan of the gold filigree around the title on the left and I like the style of the right cover but I wish it wasn’t so small.
