Friday Face-Off: Winter
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 WINTRY cover
In honor of winter solstice which is fast approaching, today’s theme is anything wintry, cold, or seasonal. I’ve decided to go with Wintersong, a retelling of Labyrinth. “The last night of the year. Now the days of winter begin and the Goblin King rides abroad, searching for his bride…” When her older sister is taken by the goblins, protagonist Liesl offers herself to the Goblin King instead, but to be his Queen is to also sacrifice her life.
Let’s take a look at the covers:
From left to right:
Thomas Dunne Books (2017) – German Edition (2017)
Hungarian Edition (2017) – Indonesian Edition (2018)
I love the pure, delicate look of the Thomas Dunne edition, but I think I might prefer the German edition just a tad more! The red/white/black theme gets me every time!
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
