Friday Face Off : The Cloisters by Katy Hays


Today is another Friday Face Off, originally created by Books by Proxy).  This is an opportunity to look at a book of your choice and shine the spotlight on the covers.  Of course this only works for those books that have alternative covers (although sometimes I use this to look at a series of books to choose a favourite). . So, if you have a book that has alternative covers, highlight them and choose your favourite.  If you’re taking part it would be great if you leave a link so I can take a look at what you’ve chosen.

My book this week is one that I read late last year, The Cloisters by Katy Hays a dark academia story packed with gothic(y) goodness.

Here are the covers:

My favourite this week is :


Which is your favourite?

Again, this week as last, I like both of the covers so this was a tough choice – but I couldn’t resist the above when push came to shoe.

Join me next week in highlighting one of your reads with different covers.

    This is really a hard decision!! I tend to agree with you on the second cover but it’s a tight thing!

    The Cloisters is my current read and the UK cover is undeniably the better cover! I find the US cover quite forgettable.

    I haven’t read it, but when push comes to shove, I love idiomatic expressions too, my preference also goes to the second, with the clever spooky touch.
