Friday Face-Off: “You” 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:

~ a cover of a book with “YOU” IN THE TITLE

You Die When You Die by Angus Watson

This week I wanted to choose a book in keeping with the Wyrd & Wonder theme for May, so that definitely limited my options somewhat. Luckily, one of the first fantasy books that popped up in my search through my shelves turned out to be one that I loved, not to mention I’ve always thought that the title was awesome.

Orbit (2017) vs. Polish Edition (2018)


Just the two covers to choose from, but I’ve always liked the Orbit edition a lot. It’s the attitude of the figure in the image along with the typography of the title that really makes it pop.

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