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 a book depicting romance, seasonal for Valentines Day – “thus with a kiss I die.” I am not a fan of romantic fiction so thought I was going to struggle with this theme. That was until I twisted the theme and gave thought to the symbols of romance. And with that in mind, I selected Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill.

Cover A:

Cover B:

romantic2

Cover C:

romantic3

Cover D:

romantic4

Cover E:

romantic5

Cover F:

romantic6

Cover G:

romantic7

Cover H:

romantic8

And the winner is… COVER H! I gave this theme some thought, around the symbols of romance. Flowers, chocolates, hearts. That lead me here, to a book featuring a heart without being a romantic book. Cover H pipped the rest to the post for me. Simple and effective, without actually giving anything of the story away. 

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 a feather or feathers: “It’s not enough to have the feathers. You must dare to fly!”
