The Friday Face-Off: Current Read #11

    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:
Current Read #11

So none of the books I'm actually reading right now have more than one edition, and none of the most recent books I've read do, either. Fortunately, I went back far enough and discovered that City of Nightmares by Rebecca Schaeffer, which I read about two weeks ago (?) has three editions to compare, so that's what we are going to take a look at today!

2023 UK Hardcover

2023 US Hardcover

2023 Fairyloot Edition

My choice(s):
Although I'm not usually drawn to pinks/purples in color schemes, I actually really like the Fairyloot edition for City of Nightmares! Something about it just really blends perfectly and gives the story a very strong vibe.  I do like the boldness of the UK color scheme as well, and I probably prefer both the Fairyloot and regular UK edition to the US one. That being said, I really love what's going on with the border of the US one and think it's just that center imagery that somehow doesn't work as well for me, but I love the greens! These are all really strong covers! Which one(s) do you most prefer?
