A lot of times, with Friday Face Off, I find myself making notes of "Ooh, this cover reminds me of something - I should track it down." But every now and then, things will just work out so weirdly, where I'll be thinking of a book and see its twin as I'm thinking of it, or I'll see one and almost immediately see another. But never have I seen any in such quick succession as this...I was on Goodreads, and one of my GR friends had added Soul Bound as to-read. I though, Hmm, that sorta looks like the upside down portion of the cover for Balefire, so I made a note to add it to the FFO list - and then I looked down, and the very next item in my feed was another friend posting Sacrificial Magic as to-read. And Lo, a Friday Face Off was born! So ~
Which one would you reach for? Which makes you want to know more about the story within?
Which one did it better?
And here's the cover of Balefire I was talking about. See the cheeky over-the-shoulder grin at the bottom - same model?
Last Week on FFO: 13 Little Blue Envelopes blew The Geography of Girlhood out of the water when they went head(less) to head(less).
