Friday Face-Off · Various Things

Friday Face-Off 12th August 2016.


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  “May flights of angels lead you on your way” – a cover which features an angel/angels

For the theme this week I have chosen: The House of Shattered Wings by Aliette deBodard. 

I’m pushing the boundaries of the theme this week as my choice doesn’t actually feature an angel/angel but angels wings but on a technicality that’s still an angel part! 🙂

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:



Cover A:


I just prefer the colour scheme and artistic direction.

Thoughts?? Agree?/ Disagree??

Why not join in:

Next weeks theme: 19th August: “The blood is life… and it shall be mine!”- a cover which features ‘blood’

  1. No… can’t agree this time around. Cover B is one of my alltime favourite covers. Ever. I LOVE those beautiful shimmering colours and the real book just feels fabulous to touch… But a fantastic choice for this subject, Drew – I so very nearly went for it myself!

  2. Ya, A for sure. Little more simplistic. Love the idea by the way! It’s also fun to see how titles are translated, they’re way different sometimes!
