Friday Face-Off – 5th February 2021

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 from a book featuring a great romance: “Every great love starts with a great story…” I am not a fan of romance generally, but have gone with William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

And the winner is… IT’S A DRAW!

Covers A and E win it for me. Both are simplistic – black background with that single piece of stereotypical romantic iconography in vivid red. But there is an underlying darkness in both of these covers.

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 that is furry: “In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.”
