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 – I’ll be updating the list next week to include themes for 20202, if you have a cover in mind that you’re really wanting to share then feel free to leave a comment about a future suggested theme.  I’ve also listed events that take place during the year, that I’m aware of, so you can link up your covers – if you’re aware of any events that you think I should include then give me a shout.  This week’s theme is:

A cover that is Futuristic

This week I’ve gone for a book that I really enjoyed by Andy Weir, the second book that I read by this author, I loved The Martian and couldn’t wait to read Artemis.  Here is my review and here are the covers for my book this week : Artemis by Andy Weir

The Covers:


This week my favourite is:


Which is your favourite?

I’ve included events that I’m aware of so that you can perhaps link your themes up where possible (if you know of an event you’d like to share then let me know in the comments).  I also have a list prepared for 2020 and so will set up a separate page soon for forthcoming themes.  As always, if you wish to submit an idea then leave me a comment.

Next week –  A cover that is 60s sci fi

Future themes: (if you’re struggling with any of these themes then use a ‘freebie’ or one of your favourite covers)


(I’m hoping that November will once again bring to us SciFiMonth – Twitter @SciFiMonth)

29th November – “When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off by sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.” – a cover that is 60s sci fi

6th December – Now is the winter of our discontent, Made glorious summer by this sun of York”  – a cover that puts you in mind of winter

13th December – A cover that features a temple/or religious icon

20th December – Longest Night –  a dark and foreboding cover

27th December – the festive season – a cover that is glittery or sparkling

(2020 – January is Vintage SciFi month so I’ll be including possible themes to take that on board.

I have a full list for next year which will be up next week (yes, I said that last week but this time I mean it) – apologies for the delay folks 😀

    I like the Artemis cover you picked but my fav is the first one, the black cover with just the moon. I think it’s very atmospheric looking and makes me more inclined to want to read the book :)))

    • @lynnsbooks

      It is a great cover – and like you said, very atmospheric.
      Lynn 😀

    What a good choice for this week! I like the second cover, featuring the domed community as it looks wonderfully cool and futuristic:).

    • @lynnsbooks

      It really does – and was almost my favourite too.
      Lynn 😀

    […] UK and US book covers and decide which is we prefer. This meme is currently being nurtured by Lynn’s Book Blog and this this week we are featuring FUTURISTIC covers. I’ve selected the classic sci fi adventure […]

  4. Barb @ Booker T's Farm

    Yep, that’s definitely my favorite too.

  5. Tammy

    This is a perfect choice for this week! And I love the same one, that blue green color gets me every time😁

  6. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    I like your pick very much, especially for the color choice that’s very dramatic. A good runner-up would be the second from the left in the first row.

    Great pick for this one. I honestly love most of these covers. I think the one with the sun being eclipsed looks pretty darn cool. 🙂

  14. @lynnsbooks

    Yes, it is pretty darn cool now I look at it again.
    Lynn 😀
