Friday Face-Off: Glittery & Sparkling

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:

The Festive Season

Mogsy’s Pick:

The Gold Seer Trilogy by Rae Carson

All that glitters is not gold…except when it is! I’ve always loved the covers for this trilogy of historical fantasy novels about a young woman who has the magical ability to sense gold around her. A most handy talent for someone to have indeed, especially when your story takes place during the Gold Rush and you’re on your way to California with a caravan of other settlers in the hopes of finding your fortune.

To be honest, I enjoy these covers so much that I’d rather just show you how beautiful they are than to do a traditional face-off, so just sit back, relax, and enjoy the eye-candy (but in case you’re curious, my favorite is Like A River Glorious)! If you celebrated, I hope you had a Merry Christmas this week, and happy holidays to all!

Walk on Earth a Stranger – Greenwillow (2015)

Like A River Glorious – Greenwillow (2016)

Into The Bright Unknown – Greenwillow (2017)

  1. This is a series that I’ve wanted to read for a long time but I’ve been waiting for it to be available in either kindle or audio and neither has happened.
    Love your choice for this theme – they are lovely covers.
