Friday Face-Off: Turquoise

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:

“Sparkling like the sea”
~ a cover that is TURQUOISE

Alive by Scott Sigler

Finding a turquoise cover for this week was tougher than I thought. Luckily, right before I gave up, I remembered Alive, a sci-fi horror dystopian YA told through the eyes of a girl who wakes up on her twelfth birthday with no no recollection of who she is or what her life was life before she went to sleep. She finds herself in darkness, trapped in an enclosed space that feels disturbingly like a coffin. And most confusing of all, she knows she is supposed to be twelve, but her body looks and feels like it should belong to someone older, like a woman in her late teens or early twenties. What could be happening to her, and why?

Let’s take a look at the covers:

From left to right:
Del Rey (2015) – Del Rey Kindle (2015)

French Edition (2016) – Hungarian Edition (2016)


If I had to choose a winner, it would probably be the Del Rey hardcover, mostly because it’s the most familiar to me. But quite honestly, none of them really stood out for me this week!

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

  1. I agree, none of them are stand outs for me either, but I think I like the French edition best, simply because of the upside-down image😁


  2. Your mention of it being tough finding covers for this week had me thinking about how horrible I would be at this, except for those word-based prompts you can easily search for. My mind just so often goes blank when trying to think of these sorts of things. 🙂


  3. Yeah, none of these really jump out at me but I like the Del Rey the most – well, I like the background but I’m not entirely sure I feel the title font fits it. But that’s just me.
