Friday Face-Off: Blue
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:
“How sweet to be a cloud, floating in the blue”
~ a cover that is predominantly BLUE
I’ve been crazy busy lately, which made me nervous I wasn’t going to find a book in time for this week’s Friday Face-Off. But things actually turned out okay, because I immediately thought of a book the moment I saw the theme for today. It’s just a simple three-way competition this week, featuring the second book of Spellslinger, a rollicking YA fantasy series by one of my favorite authors.
From left to right:
Hot Key Books (2017) – Orbit (2018) – French Edition (2018)
Three covers, each with their own unique strengths, but I think I’m going to have to go with the Hot Key Books edition as that’s the that’s always struck me as having the most personality. The other covers are quite beautiful too, but I just love the playing card theme and the fact that we get such a great depiction of the characters. Also–Reichis!
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
