Big Bada Boom


Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme being hosted by Books by Proxy .   This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite books’ covers.  The rules are fairly simple and can be found here.  Each week, following a predetermined theme choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.  Simples.  This week the theme is:

 In The Beginning There Was Nothing, Which Exploded

A cover which features an explosion

This was a tough one I have to confess.  I’ve gone for the third book in the 5th Wave series by Rick Yancey – and I’m sad to say I haven’t started this one yet even though I do have the first book at least ready and waiting patiently.  Anyway, No.3 is called the Last Star.  Check out the covers:

I think this fits the theme and for me the winner has to be the second cover.  It looks like an explosion in the background plus I like the colours and the imagery with the person stood on what looks like a piece of debris.

My winner this week:

the last star

Join us next week when the theme will be:

All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter

A cover which features gold

    The first cover is nice but I have to agree with you as the second cover is so much more dynamic!

    Yes… this was a bit of a struggle – tracking down a suitable explosion that had more than ONE cover! I think it’s a no brainer – the great big explosion does it for me, too:) I love the colours in it and the outline of the person in the foreground. This is my link…

    Agreed, the second cover is *arresting* – no better way to describe it!

    The second cover, no doubt!

    If the title of the third book is “The Last Star,” why is that no where on the first cover? But they do mention that is going to movie? XD

      I did wonder about that – an odd cover, perhaps it was an unfinished version and I picked the wrong one!

    Um, yeah no contest! The other one being just a night sky is a bit bland, imo, considering the big finale that’s supposed to be in this book!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, it’s a pity really – even if there’d been an iddy biddy explosion in the background!
      Lynn 😀
