Friday Face-Off · Various Things

Friday Face-Off 10th June.


The Friday Face-Off is a new meme created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the UK and US covers of a book with each week  being a certain theme, this week’s theme is a cover which features gold.

For the theme this week I have chosen Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie. I had to as I’m a huge Abercrombie fan and the UK cover is just stunning!

UK Cover:


US Cover:



The Winner: UK:


It really was an easy decision for me this week, no doubt about it, the UK takes it hands down, a truly stunning cover! 🙂

Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??

    1. I think no matter what the face-off theme Abercrombie UK covers would win, there’s just something about them that looks stunning.

      It’s a miracle, no one’s chosen the same, me thinks that may well happen next week though with the theme being fool/jester as for me there’s only one fool in fantasy and that’s Robin Hobb’s. 😊

    1. Well it’s a collection of short stories set in the First Law world so I’d say the cover with the map of the First Law world on it. 🙂 I’m not sure what the US covers for other Abercrombie books look like but the UK one though it has a different colour scheme matches the cover designs of his other UK books.

  1. What the hell is that awful cover? I’m so embarrassed for my country right now. 🙈 Box of shame. 😂 Haha! Definitely the UK cover. Seriously, US, what’s going on with these covers? I’ve seen a lot of bad ones lately. Or I’ll see a really cool one I want, and I go on Amazon and ours is hideous. Makes the decision to go with Kindle over hardback so much easier.
