Friday Face-Off – 20th December 2019

Friday Face-Off – 20th December 2019

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 comes in light of the impending shortest day, December 21st. For this I’m looking for a dark or foreboding cover. I picked James Herbert’s The Dark for this theme.

Cover A:

dark1

Cover B:

dark2

Cover C:

dark3

Cover D:

dark4

Cover E:

dark5

Cover F:

dark6

And the winner is… COVER E!

There is something about this cover that really caught my eye. It stood out for me.

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 invokes the spirit of the festive season
