Friday Face-Off – 20th July 2018

The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This weeks’ theme is somewhat ironic given the UK’s long-running heatwave: a cover featuring snow or icicles: ‘In winter with warm tears I’ll melt the snow.’

This weeks’ book is Red Sister by Mark Lawrence.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


And the winner is… COVER D!

Cover B was definitely a contender this week with the bold icy theme, but D caught my eye. I find it draws me in with the almost bored look on the girls’ face coupled with the reclined barbarian at the bottom of the cover.

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 weeks’ theme is a book cover that is steampunk: ‘I saw huge buildings rise up faint and fair, and pass like dreams.’
