Friday Face-Off: Green

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:

“Fresh and green”
~ a cover that is predominantly GREEN

The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward

The spring season brings to mind lush green colors, and although there isn’t much about this book that screams spring, I just love all its different covers!

From left to right:
Nightfire (2021) – Viper (2021)

French Edition (2022) –Russian Edition (2021) – Spanish Edition (2021)

German Edition (2021) – Italian Edition (2022)


This week’s choices are all so strong, it’s honestly hard for me to choose. If forced to pick just one winner though, I would have to give the edge to the Italian edition, which features the red/white/black color palette I love so much. The artistic style also gives it that foreboding look, at the same time doing a great job at grabbing the viewer’s attention. And of course, to top it off, we have Olivia the cat. It just can’t get more perfect than this.

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