Friday Face-Off: Night

This is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, but up-kept by Lynn’s Book Blog.

“It was the possibility of darkness that made the day seem so bright.”

This weeks theme: A cover featuring the night

My Choice: Where the Red Fern Grows


Covers 1-3 are the same picture but the words are in different places.  I like the 2nd one the best out of those three because the words aren’t covering the kid and it doesn’t have a random blurb of extra info.

Cover 4 is very similar to 1-3, but I don’t like it because it looks like the kid and the dogs aren’t together, it looks like two images photo-shopped together.

Cover 5 looks like an old timey mystery novel.  It has been a while since I read this, but I don’t remember it being a mystery.

Cover 6, I really really really like the dogs, but I don’t like the lettering.  It looks too childish.

Cover 7 looks old and Winnie the Pooh ish

Cover 8, I like the font but I don’t like the dogs.  They look super weird.

Cover 9 looks the most modern and I like the silhouetted kid with the dogs.


Overall Cover 2 is my favorite:

Red Fern 4

However if you combined the picture from cover 6 and the words from cover 8 I think it would be my favorite


Which cover do you like best? Let me know in the comments! What book would you choose for this meme?



  1. My first choice would be the fifth – like you said, it has an old fashioned mystery type feel – shame it doesn’t really fit the content of the book though. Other than that I like your choice, the other similar covers are very dark.
