Friday Face-Off: Romantic

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:

“Thus with a kiss I die”
~ a ROMANTIC cover

Mogsy’s Pick:

The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The topic for today’s Friday Face-Off is a romantic cover for Valentine’s Day, and even though I wasn’t crazy for this book, it features a romance and there are a couple covers well-suited to the theme. Let’s take a look at them now:

From left to right:
Tor Teen (2018) – German Edition (2019) – Italian Edition (2018)


Spanish Edition (2018) – Polish Edition (2018) – French Edition (2019)



Despite the effusion of pinks and purples which are perfect for Valentine’s Day, my goodness some of these covers are just awful. The most fitting one for today though also happens to be my top pick.

But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
