The Friday Face-Off is a meme initially created by Books by Proxy and is now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare a book’s different covers with a specific theme each week.
This week’s theme is a cover from a fairy tale retold: “And they all lived happily ever after.” This week’s book is The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert.
And the winner is… COVER C!
Some of these covers seemed a little too busy for my liking. Cover C manages to keep it simple while still portraying a dark vibe. The murky forest with the two birds feels creepy. It immediately draws me in.
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 assassins: “If they wanted Adarlan’s Assassin, they’d get her. And Wyrd help them when she arrived.”
One thought on “Friday Face-Off – 25th November 2022”
Cover C – fekt the same, other covers too busy loved the feel of the the 2 birds flying through the dark wood.
