Friday Face-Off: Musical Instrument

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy! Each Friday, we will pit cover against cover while also taking the opportunity to showcase gorgeous artwork and feature some of our favorite book covers. If you want to join the fun, simply choose a book each Friday that fits that week’s predetermined theme, post and compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme is:

“If music be the food of love, play on”
~ a cover featuring a MUSICAL INSTRUMENT

Mogsy’s Pick:
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

This Savage Song follows the lives of two teenagers who cannot be any more different. Kate Harker and August Flynn are both the children to the rulers of their respective parts of the city, but being an heir to power is just about the only thing they have in common. Kate is the daughter of Callum Harker, the man who runs the north side of Verity City. She is a troubled young woman, desperate to prove to her father that she is strong enough to live up to the family name. On the other hand, August is the third adopted child of Henry Flynn, who runs the south side. August is quiet, reserved, and contemplative. And he loves music.

Let’s check out the covers:

From left to right, top to bottom:
Greenwillow Books (2016) – Titan Books (2016
Romanian Edition (2016) – Serbian Edition (2017)




I don’t really care for any of these to be honest, but the one I like best is probably the Titan Books edition. I like its simple elegance and I have a fondness for the red-white-black color scheme.

What do you think? Which one is your favorite?

  1. What?!? No angsty looking heroine/hero on the cover? My goodness, the world has shifted under my feet 😉

    I think I prefer the Romanian edition just because it has a person on the cover. Don’t care for that big gold round thingy, but…
