The Friday Face-Off: Enemies to Lovers

  Friday Face Off New

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme at Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe.  You can find a list of upcoming topics at Lynn's Books.

This week's topic is:
Enemies to Lovers

There are so many books featuring so form of enemies to lovers tropes, so for this week's topic I narrowed it down and decided to feature To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo. This book features Lira, a siren princess, and Elian, a siren hunter. I think you can imagine where this set up might go!

To Kill a Kingdom Elian und Lira: Das wilde Herz der See La Regina delle Sirene
2018 US Hardcover | 2018 German | 2021 Italian 

Да убиеш кралство To Kill a Kingdom Зруйнувати королівство
2019 Bulgarian | 2019 Indonesian | 2021 Ukrainian

My choice(s):
These are all pretty good covers, but I have to say that I still seem to like the original US cover the most! I think it really captures the vibe of the book and has a bit of ominous foreboding to it along with a really compelling design. I do think the Indonesian one is really pretty, but doesn't fit the story as well, and I love the Bulgarian cover choice as well! The Italian one feels very unique, too!

What cover(s) do you like the most?


  1. The Italian and Indonesian covers are really cool!

  2. All of those are really good, but I think I like the original cover and the Indosesian cover the best. :)

  3. The Italian cover is really jumping out at me. Great choice!
