Friday Face-Off: “Murder” In The Title

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 Murders of Molly Southbourne by Tade Thompson

Pretty straightforward theme this week. I give you The Murders of Molly Southbourne by the master of modern weird horror, Tade Thompson:

From left to right: (2017) – French Edition (2019)

Catalan; Valencian Edition (2019) – Hungarian Edition (2021)


The contenders are all pretty strong this week, and the red/black/white color scheme is actually one of my favorites. I guess my winner would be the one that drew my attention right away.

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