Friday Face-Off – 22nd October 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 with ‘Queen’ in the title: “I will do what queens do, I will rule.” This week’s book is Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

And the winner is… COVER B!

The duality in terms of the colours on this cover really spoke to me. It makes me wonder if there is a duality in the nature and personality of the Red Queen. The title itself poses images of a harsh, tough ruler, and the imagery in the cover only adds to that.

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 book that is gothic: “I knew that sound well too. It was the beating of the old man’s heart. It increased my fury, as the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage.”

  1. Cover A – love the blood dripping off the crown. Simple but effective and makes me want to pick it up and find out more.
