Friday Face-Off: Halloween
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:
“Trick or treat!”
~ a cover inspired by HALLOWEEN
This book and I did not get along at all, but as I recall, Halloween plays a big part at the end of the story and that’s good enough for me to use it for this week’s topic. Admittedly, I had a hard time coming up with anything else that was more representative of Halloween, and anyway, there’s nothing like a witchy book to get you in the mood for this holiday.
There are a lot of covers for this novel, here’s a bunch of them:
From left to right:
Viking (2011) – Headline (2011) – Headline eBook (2011)
French Edition (2011) – Portuguese Edition (2011) – Chinese Edition (2011) – Croatian Edition (2011)
Greek Edition (2012) – Norwegian Edition (2011) – German Edition (2011)
Hebrew Edition (2012) – Latvian Edition (2014) – Slovak Edition (2011) – Romanian Edition (2011)
Serbian Edition (2011) – Italian Edition (2011) – Bulgarian Edition (2011)
And normally I would not include the covers for editions that are divided for publications, but these Vietnamese language Alphabooks editions are just too pretty not to show:
1A and 1B
You’ve probably guessed already, but I had to do it. I just love this one!
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
