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 that is predominantly purple: “The sky is already purple; the first few stars have appeared, suddenly, as if someone had thrown a handful of silver across the edge of the world.” This week’s book is Lock Every Door by Riley Sager.
And the winner is… COVER I!
This one really spoke to me. It’s a simple design but it is really effective. It somehow conveys a sense of terror and tension. Knowing that this is a thriller/horror novel, makes the design all the more ominous. A definite book to add to my list.
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 festive book: “I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
