Friday Face Off: Bloodthirsty

I've had Flynn Meaney's Bloodthirsty sitting on my shelves for quite some time now. I keep intending to read it as a light and silly alternative for Helluva Halloween, but it just hasn't happened.  I own the simple white heart cover, but I'm not going to lie - the goofy grin on the boy cover was what made me want to read it in the first place - the heart cover was just the first I came across for the buying and the owning.  And I'm disappointed by that, because I think the boy cover is rare - sure, we see a lot of face covers (it sometimes seems that's all we see).  But to see one so light and ridiculous in tone, with a boy cheesing in a completely adorkable way, rather than being all broodysexy...well, I'm not opposed to broodysexy, but this makes for a nice change.  And it says something about the tone of the book, too, which I like.  But I know it won't be to everyone's tastes, so I ask you:
Which did it better?

Last Week on FFO: The covers for Karen Mahoney's The Iron Witch and The Wood Queen went head to head, tattooed arm to tattooed arm, with The Wood Queen managing to snake a win!

  1. I like the boy cover better. Not sure I could coherently explain why at this point, but I do.

    Maybe it's just because the heart shape is really kind of ugly... Or, because the heart looks more... cheezy. And not the goofy but fun/funny type cheezy, but that roll your eyes, oh my goodness, I can't believe that just happened, type of cheezy... :)

  2. The boy has this nerd cute quality that strikes a cord with me.

  3. I like the heart one better. The other one just seems a little over the top to me. Too cheesy maybe...

  4. I like the heart cover more simply because the placement of the text on the boy cover kinda irks me. But the boy is cute I'll give him that. I expect him to say "I vant to drink your blood" and then laugh so hard his fake fangs fall out at any moment.

  5. I'm liking the boy cover. you don't see to many of those and this one just looks funny.

  6. The cover with the Heart is kinda cute..but the Guy's cover is this lame and awkward "vampire" wich fits waaaaay better to the story..
    I've read it and it's weird but really funny I've liked..

    Then... my VOTE is for the awkward-funny-looking Guy's Cover hehe ;[

  7. Definitely the heart cover, but I do think the boy's expression is hilarious!

  8. um, neither lol. I wouldn't pick up either off the bat, but I think the boy cover looks a little less middle school, so I'd go with that one.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
