Friday Face Off : A book with ‘star’ in the title


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 (this doesn’t have to be a book that you’ve read), compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.   Future’s themes are listed below – 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:

A book with ‘star’ in the title

I had a number of books that I could have used this week but I’ve gone with a fairly recent read and an author that is on my favourites list for very good reason.  Only two covers for this one but they’re both good.  This week I’ve gone for the first book from Mark Lawrence’s Book of the Ice: The Girl and the Stars:

I’ve updated the list now to include themes for next year.  If you know of an event that’s coming up let me know and I’ll try and include covers that work for the event itself so that you can link up to the Friday Face Off and, as always, if you wish to submit an idea then leave me a comment – or if you’d like to host a week then simply let me know.  Also, I would just mention that it’s very possible that some of these might be repeats from previous FFOs although I have tried to invent more ‘open ended’ prompt that can be interpreted differently and also prompts that relate to emotions.  Finally, don’t struggle with any of these, this is meant to be a fun way of highlighting books.  If you can’t come up with a book you think fits for a particular week use a freebie – perhaps a recent read for example:

Next Week : Futuristic vista


November – Sci Fi Month

19th – Futuristic vista

26th – A Black Hole – in the universe or going deep into the ground


3rd – Windswept, the classic figure, stood majestically, with wind blowing out in a fetching way

10th – A fairytale retold

17th – Winter Solstice approaching – anything cold and seasonal

24th – All things fire – red hair, red covers, fire breathing dragons, simply fire?

31st – What’s your catnip – if it’s on a cover you have to pick it up

    I agree, both are pretty, but I think I will go with the US cover. Love the colors!

    I like the UK best as well. It’s so intriguing with the dark background😁

      Yes, I really like the darkness and it fits the story really well.

    I like both, but I think I like the first cover a bit more.

    I like both of these and they both give off a cold vibe which works with the overall theme looks like!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, they do both fit very well with the book which is a defo plus 😀
