Friday Face-Off: Something Sweet
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:
“Coraline opened the box of chocolates. The dog looked at them longingly.”

Forgive me for going with the obvious choice this week, but I was completely at a loss as to what other book I could feature for the theme! Also, because this was one of the first books I ever read by the author, I just thought it was appropriate, as I have become such a big fan of hers since.
There are a ton of editions and covers available for this book, so I only selected the best and most notable (and sweetest!) to feature. Let’s take a look at some of them now:
From left to right:
Black Swan (2000) – Penguin Books (2000) – Transworld Digital (2010)
Penguin Movie Tie-In (2000) – Penguin Non-Classics (2000) – Ukrainian Edition (2015) – Czech Edition (2001)
Romanian Edition (2007) – Lithuanian Edition (2004) – Lithuanian Edition (2018)
– Dutch Edition (2007) – Dutch Edition (2012) – Croatian Edition (2002) – Polish Edition (2006)
Russian Edition (2007) – Russian Edition (2009) – Swedish Edition (2012)
– Italian Edition (2005) – Italian Edition (2015) – French Edition (2000) – French Edition(2014)
Portuguese Edition (1999) – Portuguese Edition (2007) – Slovak Edition (2017)
It was so hard for me to pick this week, with the CHOCOLATE OVERLOAD. A few did jump out at me though, with the Russian 2007 edition being one of the memorable standouts, but in truth I do have several that I love.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
