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 Friday Face-Off theme is a cover that features a cat: “I meant,” said Ipslore bitterly, “what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?” Death thought about it. CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.” I’ve gone for The Shining sequel, Doctor Sleep by Stephen King.

Cover A:

Doctor Sleep Stephen King 1

Cover B:

Doctor Sleep Stephen King 2

Cover C:

Doctor Sleep Stephen King 3

Cover D:

Doctor Sleep Stephen King 4

Cover E:

Doctor Sleep Stephen King 5

Cover F:

Doctor Sleep Stephen King 6

Cover G:

Doctor Sleep Stephen King 7

And the winner is… COVER C!

I read and absolutely loved this book. A worthy sequel to a fantastic novel. The cat in the book is somewhat ominious, a portent of things soon to come. Something about the cat in C is ethereal, ominous in a way. I love the way it seems to materialise out of the smoke. And the piercing blue eyes are mesmerising.

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 from a graphic novel.
