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’s theme is “unlucky for some” – a book cover that features the word “curse” for Friday 13th. For this theme I have gone back to childhood favourite R.L. Stine and The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb.

Cover A:

curse1

Cover B:

curse2

Cover C:

curse3

Cover D:

curse4

Cover E:

curse5

And the winner is… COVER B!

A bit of a rare pick for me, given that I almost always go with the book cover that I owned. That would be cover C. But there was something cheesy and very 1940s/50s in cover B. It sparked a sense of wonder and adventure from its style.

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 hair: “your hair is winter fire, January embers. My heart burns there too.”
