Friday Face-Off 9th December 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: “soul meets soul on lover’s lips” – a cover featuring lips.

For the theme this week I have chosen: They Thirst by Robert McCammon.

I found the theme hard this week as not many books I read seem to have lips on them so I ended up with this classic Vampire book as at least one cover had lips on! 🙂

Cover A (this is the one with lips on it, yay for technicalities):

lips1

Cover B:

lips2

Cover C:

lips3

Cover D:

lips4

Cover E:

lips5

Cover F:

lips6

Cover G:

lips7

Cover H:

lips8

Cover I:

lips9

Cover J:

lips10

Cover G:

lips7

I really like the castle depicted in the cover along with all the bats flying around, the moon and also the big blocky font used that while it won’t be to some peoples taste, I really like it as it makes the authors and books name both stand out and pop against the image on the cover

Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??

  1. For once, I completely agree with you! 😜 I typically don’t pick the same covers as you for some strange reason, but I think the color scheme and layout of cover G is the one which evokes “Vampire story” the most. That said, this book has quite a diverse range of covers!

  2. I agree with this choice.. yeah I know.. shocker. But it has a more classic or traditional feel to it. That is more suiting for Vampires. I found A to be half creepy, half hilarious. It is like.. okay the face was leaning towards creepy then they slapped some Rocky Horror lips on there.. wtf? Who does that..? Dear Lord, is that a US cover, please say no.
