Friday Face-Off: Forest/Jungle
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:
“None of the Jungle People like being disturbed.”

I’ve only finished the first book of N.K. Jemison’s Inheritance trilogy, but the covers to the second book are just too gorgeous and matched this week’s theme too perfectly to ignore. So let’s see which one will come out on top:
From left to right:
Orbit (2010) – Orbit Paberback (2020)
German Edition (2010) – French Edition (2013) – Turkish Edition (2013)
Russian Edition (2013) – Japanese Edition (2012)
I have to say it was a real tough choice this week. For me, it came down to a toss-up between the Russian Edition and the Japanese Edition. Technically and artistically I felt the latter was a bit more unique, and manages to paint a really poignant moment from an interesting angle. However, it’s just a shame how the text takes up so much space, causing too much distraction. So, I’m going to go with the Russian edition.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
