Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme created by Books by Proxy .   This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers.  The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme (list below) choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.   Future week’s themes are listed below. This week’s theme:

The world was my oyster but I used the wrong fork (A cover which features food)

This book cover is the only one that I could come up with this week!

My favourite this week:

I’ve had to go with the obvious one this week:


Which is your favourite?

Next week – Insect

Future themes:

25th August 2017 – If I be waspish, best beware my sting (A cover which features an insect)

1st September 2017 – Being born in a stable does not make one a horse (A cover which features a horse)

8th September 2017 – That great condenser of moral chaos, The City (A cover which features a city)

    I go for the apple cover – that’s the one I read, too!

    Yes… I think the cover with the apple is a clear winner. Funnily enough, I also have apples on my covers, too – but for quite a different book!

      I just stopped over and spotted that you’d also used apples – I meant to mention it but of course forgot!

    That was definitely some brilliant cover design with that apple image – it really became iconic and stood out on shelves. I wonder how much it contributed to the overall success of the book (impossible to say of course, but I’d love to know!).

    • @lynnsbooks

      Exactly – you can’t hear about this book without picturing the cover – it’s synonymous isn’t it. Great design really when it works so well.

    Oh my god, that apple cover brings back some memories hahaha. Take or leave Twilight, that’s one iconic cover!

  5. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    I like your choice too. The Classic 🙂 I really don’t like the movie covers, haha.

    Yes, I agree. 🙂
