This week’s Friday Face-Off theme is a cover from a fairy tale retold: “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” The book for this week’s theme is Cinder by Marissa Meyer.
And the winner is… COVER F!
It’s the classic glass slipper from the Cinderella tale we all know. But then there’s the mechanical thing going on, ghosted into the leg. It fits the vibe, with this being a dystopian, sci-fi retelling of the traditional story. I like this cover for its simplicity. It is clear that it’s a version of Cinderella, just not the one we all know.
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 wintery: “What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
