Friday Face-Off: Snake
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:
“Hi little cub. Oh no, don’t be ssscared.”

I really wish I could erase these books from my mind, but this one came in handy today. Circus of the Damned is the third book of Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series which was shortly before they turned into wall-to-wall bad porn. Let’s take a look at some of the more interesting covers I’ve found for this book:
From left to right, top to bottom:
Ace (1995) – Berkley Books (2009) – Headline (2009)
Jove (2002) – Berkley Paperback (2007) – French Edition (2009)
Czech Edition (2007) – Czech Edition (2007) – Italian Edition (2006)
Turkish Edition (2009) – Portuguese Edition (2011) – Spanish Edition (2008)
German Edition (2005) – Greek Edition (2008) – Russian Edition (2010)
My winner was chosen today because I have a weakness for circus motifs – anything to do with carnival marquee posters, flashy flyers and big top tents…you’ve got my attention.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
