Friday Face-Off – 17th July 2020

Friday Face-Off – 17th 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 depicting something being held. For this theme I have gone with the classic Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.

And the winner is… COVER G!

Cover G had to win this for me. I read this book for my GCSE English course in school and fell in love with the story. That was only reinforced when I also watched the movie adaptation starring Gary Sinese and John Malkovich. This was the cover I had back in school, and is the one that always reminds me of this wonderful book.

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 is framed – maybe it features a picture frame, or maybe a murder mystery? Who knows!
