Friday Face-Off: Lake
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 mysterious lake”
~ a cover featuring a LAKE
I was deeply saddened by the news of Rachel Caine’s passing last month. She’s written some of my favorite books including Stillhouse Lake, the first book of what has become one of my favorite thriller series. A sense of melancholy came over me as I was putting together this post, but seeing all these different covers also lifted my spirits to know her books have touched so many people’s lives around the world.
From left to right:
Thomas & Mercer (2017) – Polish Edition (2018) – Romanian Edition (2018)
Italian Edition (2019) – Indonesian Edition (2019) – Lithuanian Edition (2020)
French Edition (2019) – Chinese Edition (2019) – Persian Edition
There are so many nice ones this week, I had tough time choosing. In the end though, I had to go with the French edition with its ominous mood, plus I thought it used the reflections in the water to great effect.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
