Friday Face-Off: Motel

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:

“They cluck their thick tongues, and shake their heads and suggest, os so very delicately!”

The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

Glad I read this book, because it’s perfect for the theme (not to mention it was pretty awesome too).

From left to right:
Berkley (2020) – Wheeler Publishing Large Print (2020)

German Edition (2021) – Croatian Edition (2020) – Hungarian Edition (2021)


And how do the covers stack up? Well, the book might be awesome, but none of the later covers really grab me. I still prefer the original first edition Berkley.

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

  1. That would have been my choice too and if I recall correctly, it was your review that convinced me to listen to that one. Otherwise I never would have and I would have missed an incredible read!
