Friday Face-Off – 7th June 2019

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 week sees the first Friday Face-Off of June. The theme is a cover that brings to mind summer: “One swallow does not make a summer.”

This week I’ve gone for Jeff Lyndsay’s Dexter is Delicious.

Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


Cover F:


And the winner is… Cover E!

When I started looking at the covers for this one, A was speaking to me – golden Miami sunlight (let’s ignore good old Dexter bound in tape), and the Hawaiian-style shirt. But in the end the simplicity of cover E won through. The crisp white background, the vibrant colours of the doughnuts implying the delicious treats summer brings with it.

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’s theme is a cover featuring something sweet: “Coraline opened the box of chocolates. The dog looked at them longingly.”
