Friday Face-Off: Festival/Party/Celebration
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:
“As full of spirit as the month of May”
~ a cover featuring a FESTIVAL/PARTY/CELEBRATION
For all the books I’ve read featuring glamorous parties, galas, masquerades, festivals, and celebrations, etc., I found that shockingly few of them actually show them on their covers, to my great frustration! In the end, I decided to go with The Winner’s Curse because I definitely remember a ball or some grand party taking place in it, and the character on the cover is certainly dressed for one in any case.

Farrar Straus Giroux (2014) – Square Fish (2016)
German Edition (2018) – Czech Edition (2018)
Serbian Edition (2017) – Persian Edition (2017)
What can I say, I’m a sucker for pretty dresses.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
