Friday Face Off: Shadows on the Moon

Earlier in the week, I was going through my stack of fairy tales, reading the first lines of each in an effort to decide which to read next.  It was a wasted effort, because they all had effing amazing first lines.  Seriously, the quality of these fairy tales was maddeningly good. ;)  Anyway, I took the issue to Twitter and Goodreads and let The People (and The Tweeple) decide for me what to read, and they decided The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.  So, yay! Except...
Except I found that it just wasn't quite what I was in the mood for, so I kind of, um, cheated on you guys.  I picked up Zoe Marriott's Shadows on the Moon instead; it was sitting on my bed, at the top of the stack, and Suzume was making eye contact with me.  I found I could resist its siren song no longer...
So, to make up for the fact that I FLAGRANTLY DISREGARDED Liz everyone by not reading TGWCFiaSoHOM*, I thought I should at least give you a good Face Off for your troubles...
I give you, the UK (already out) and US (coming out soon) versions; personally, I feel like I maybe need to own them both**...So prettttty...
Which one did it better?

US version: Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads 

*For reals. Longest title ever.
** Especially since the US version is hardcover, and the UK is paperback only...

Last Week on FFO: Well, it was a close one, and I thought for sure everyone was going to go for the more typical YA-ish cover of Sapphire Blue, but Ruby Red managed to just barely snag a win.  I think, though, that if those who voted for Sapphire Blue could see Ruby Red in person, more would have voted that way - a picture does not even come close to doing this beautiful book justice!
Winnah ------->


  1. Very tough call, but I'll go with the first one. I like the flowers along the edge.

  2. Both covers are really nice but the second one is definitely one I would love to have in my collection.

  3. I'm not a huge fan of either of them, but if I had to pick, I like the one on the left.


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