Friday Face-Off – 26th July 2019

Friday Face-Off – 26th July 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 theme was meant to be a cover that is upside down. I struggled when I ran a cursory search, and with a busy week at work time ran out on me, so in recognition of recent UK temperatures I have made a unilateral decision to make the theme for this week as a cover that looks hot.

For this week’s theme I have gone with Wilbur Smith’s Desert God.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


Cover F:


Cover G:


And the winner is… Cover A!

The flames on the landscape are a fairly accurate representation for how hot my house feels right now. That and I love the scene of the pyramids with the sun glowing from behind.

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 features children: “There are children here somewhere. I can smell them.”
