Friday Face-Off is an idea originally thought up by Books By Proxy which I stole from the fantastic The Tattooed Book Geek. The idea originally was to compare UK and US covers based on an assigned theme each week and choose the winning cover. I will be twisting it slightly: not specifically US and UK covers, just different editions.
This week’s theme is a cover featuring playing cards: “I never let my schooling interfere with my education”.
This week I looked to School of Fear by Gitty Daneshvari.
And the winner is… cover A!
This cover has a nice clean look, while appearing almost innocent in a child-like manner. But equally, there was something in there that has an added element of darkness to it, hints at the fears the title describes. This is certainly a book I would be interested in reading!
What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!
Next week I will be looking for a cover featuring a bird or birds: “Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs are too sweet and wild”.
