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 a cover featuring a crown: ‘Heavy is the head that wears the crown.’

For this theme I’ve picked Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake.

Cover A:

crown1

Cover B:

crown2

Cover C:

Der Schwarze ThronDie Schwestern von Kendare Blake

Cover D:

crown4

Cover E:

cown5

Cover F:

crown6

Cover G:

crown7

Cover H:

crown8

And the winner is… COVER H!

All of the other covers feature ornate, detailed crown designs, some of which are brilliant. With cover H though, the design is eye catching. The way the water splash forms the shape of a crown with the vivid colours on the dark background.

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 cover for the festive season: ‘Ho, Ho, Ho!’
