Friday Face-Off – 3rd July 2020

Friday Face-Off – 3rd July 2020

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 featuring tentacles: “The sea brought you.  The sea shall have you back.” This week I’ve picked China Mieville’s Kraken.

And the winner is… COVER I!

This week was a tough contest for me. There were a number of covers that could have won it for me, all for different reasons. Cover I stole it for me though. The ominous silhouette of the Kraken looming over the city skyline is all kinds of creepy!

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 featuring a tunnel: “At the end of every light, is a tunnel of darkness.”
