Friday Face-Off – 19th August 2022

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 cover that depicts the seaside: “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!” The book for this week’s theme is Duma Key by Stephen King.

And the winner is… COVER H!

This is the cover that draws me in the most. The slender palms, the bright sky, the inviting sea and the house overlooking it. It almost seems idyllic. Except for the colouring. There is something haunting in the greenish tinge to the whole scene. A close second place goes to Cover E which is pretty ominous in my view!

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 featuring a quest, journey or adventure: “The journey is the treasure.”
