Friday Face-Off: A Wicked Grin
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:
~ a cover featuring A WICKED GRIN
Bite Me by Christopher Moore
Because who doesn’t love Christopher Moore? His vampire series is certainly no Twilight, but it was where I went hoping to find myself some covers featuring fanged smiles. I was not disappointed.
From left to right:
William Morrow (2010) – Sphere (2011) – German Edition (2011)
Polish Edition (2010) – Hungarian Edition (2010) – Russian Edition (2013)
The William Morrow, without a doubt. It’s bold, simple, and quirky without being too weird. Actually, a lot of Moore’s covers are done in this style and I love them.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
I agree. The cat one is funny!
Pretty weird 😀
Same, cos it is cute
I like the detail of the bleeding plaster on the neck! 😀
Haha, yeah gotta wonder what that’s all about 😀
The russian cover with the cat amused me. The wings were a great touch.
That is how I view all cats anyway 😀
Hahaha! I hear ya, I’m not much of a cat person either 😀

What’s up with that Russian cover, lol? I love the William Morrow cover as well. Pretty sure I have this on my shelves.
LOL yes, that Russian cover was something else! I laughed when I saw it too 😀
Haha, this is a great choice – i love the plaster. I also like the Polish edition.
Yeah I also just noticed the cute pattern on the bandaid 😀
I’ve actually never read anything by Moore, though I’d like to. I had to laugh at the Russian edition, just too funny. 🙂
I know, isn’t that cover just so bizarre? I’ve read a few of Moore’s books, he’s got a really quirky sense of humor 😀
