Friday Face-Off: White Noise
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:
“You can’t choose between life and death when we’re dealing with what is in between.”

So I couldn’t really find a cover among the books I’ve read that features a grainy or static effect for this week’s theme, but I did come across one that looked somewhat digitally distorted. Close enough! Dreamfall follows a group of teenagers who are signed up for an experimental study to help treat their individual sleep disorders. However, the equipment hooked up to the teens ends up malfunctioning during the trial and the seven of them seemingly fall into comas. In reality though, they’re all dreaming, trapped inside a nightmare together. Worse, they’re being hunted by their deepest fears come to life, and in this dream, you’ll never wake up if you die.
Let’s take a look at the covers:
Turkish Edition (2017)
Hungarian Edition (2018)
So I didn’t exactly love this book which might be biasing me against these covers, because I’m not really crazy about any of them. If I had to choose my favorite, however, I have to say I’m a bit intrigued by the HarperTeen edition because of the whole watery, melting effect giving it a weird Salvador Dali kind of vibe to it.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
